First of all, overgrown nails cause increased force onto the dog’s nail bed. As a result of that, the dog feels pain and pressure on the toe joint. It feels the same as wearing too-tight shoes.
If your dog’s nails are clickety-clacking on your wooden floors, it’s the first sign that they could be too long. It might take months of trimming once a week to allow the nail to healthily regress into the quick. After the nails regress, trimming them once or twice a month is a recommended frequency to maintain nails at a healthy length.
If a dog’s claws are too long, walking or running could become difficult and painful. Additionally, when the nails aren’t taken care of, they can get torn or split, which is very painful for the pet, and in some cases may need to be treated by the VET.
In the long term, claws may realign the joints of the foreleg, and the foot may look flattened and impaired. The nails can even curve and grow into the pad of the foot, which causes unpleasant nail-cutting and treatment sessions for dogs and their owners.
Here are some additional questions that our customers sometimes ask before making a final decision. It’s based on actual feedback from happy LuckyTail owners also technical product specifications, and thorough product testing:
You should consider a few features when buying a nail grinder: silence and low vibrations, as dogs have sensitive ears and usually don’t like to feel something vibrating against their skin. LuckyTail nail grinder is great for your dog since it doesn't have a significant level of buzz and vibration, ensuring a comfortable and pet-friendly experience for your pooch.
Large dogs need to trim their nails regularly for more comfort when walking. As they have thicker nails, it’s recommended to use a nail grinder with interchangeable heads, so that you can use a hard grinding bit on your big dog’s nails. LuckyTail nail grinder is ideal for large dogs as it supports different grinding heads, and also offers hard grinding heads that are ideal for big-sized pets.
Small dogs have delicate nails that can easily bruise if not trimmed regularly. As they have thinner nails, it’s recommended to use a nail grinder with a soft grinding head included for a smooth trim. You can use LuckyTail on your small pooch once it’s possible to exchange the grinding bit for a soft head, which ensures an easy and pet-friendly trimming for your puppy.
