Nail Trimming and Ear Cleaning for Dogs

Nail trimming could be a difficult task for some pet owners. It all depends on your dog’s temperament and your comfort level with the task at hand. The biggest fear for many dog owners is being scared of cutting the quick, causing their pet to bleed; for good reason too, because It can hurt! Proper care of your canine companion involves more than just walking and feeding. Regular grooming will help keep your furry friend happy and healthy.

How often should I cut my dog’s nails?

How often to trim your dog’s nails can vary from one animal to another. Some may need a trim every couple of weeks, where others may be good with once a month.

How often should I get my dog’s ears?

As a general rule: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!” Often by attempting to clean the ears, you may be introducing moisture, and causing irritation, you may end up doing more harm than good. It is certainly a good idea to check your dog’s ears regularly for redness, debris, or a bad odour. If you are noticing any of these, give us a call.

What are some of the ear cleaning services that you provide?

We offer general ear cleaning, ear flushing and removal of extra hair within the ear.
