Monday Question

Nail Trimming Do's and Don'ts | Lawrenceburg Veterinary Clinic 


 How do you feel about having your paws touched?

Who cuts your nails"

During the procedure do you cooperate are freak out?

River's Answer:  I don't mind having my feet touched. My groomers do my nails and I trust them.


  1. Brian and Seal don't mind at all and I trim both of their claws. Simon, forgetaboutit!

  2. Momma duz my nails. I'm not really a fan, but I tolerate it. She uses a nail grinder.

  3. Chia: I freak. You may have seen the new contraption Mom got to put me in for nail care, and she still had to put a muzzle on me.
    Xena: I don't like it. Mommy almost cut a nail too short once. Now it scares me.
    Lucy: I don't like it, but I sit still and let Mom do it. She never hurts me.
    Riley: I used to be so terrified of it that no one could cut my nails. I would try to keep them short by chewing them, but I would forget to do it. Now Mom Amy has something called a dremmel and I'm letting her file my nails. It never hurts.

  4. The Hubby trimmed the nails for Celestial Angel and Chuck, but when Da Boyz came home, he decided that he didn't want to be mean to them. They rarely scratch us, so it's really not an issue.
    Sweetie, however, has those murder mitts, but touching her feet is a no-go. Therefore, I've put thick canvas over things, and she doesn't get stuck.

  5. The groomer does the mine and Sunny's nails and the Vet does Jakey's.

  6. I'm quite happy for Gail to touch my paws with her hands so long as I am allowed to 'touch' her hands with my teeth at the same time...

  7. round heer in trout towne nail trimmin iz like goin two de vet which iz like a journee ta hell😼😈

  8. We walk so much on pavement here in the city, that we only need to have our dew claws trimmed every now and then!

  9. Madi was not fond of being a baby but it was the easiest way to get to the paws quickly. Her Dad held her I did the mani-pedi

  10. Dani does not allow such things. However, she will let me collect the old nails which fall off after she's finished with them.

Are you a trip hazard?  Have your parents ever tripped over you?  How often?  Did anyone get injured

Wordless Wednesday

River Song 2012-2022

  At the end of the day what was wrong with River was everything: Fluid in the lungs, in the stomach, fluid in the heart, and very high kidney levels.  I think she loved us so hard, with such ferocity, that she used up her heartbeats. Thank you for your love and support. We might take some time from social media.  It is the first time in 26 years we haven't had a dog. We will find a new one, and be back.
