Nail Trim

Nail Trim

  • With cats, dogs, ferrets, rabbits...Nail Trims are never easy to do especially alone.  Is it better to have an extra set of hands or just someone else to do the deed alone with your pet?

  • Even a visit to the groomers for a nail trim can be stressful for your pet.

 

  • Always there is a risk of zoonotic disease when exposed to environments with other animals present (ie groomers, dog parks, kennels, clinics, dog classes, etc). Not to mention, these places provide sensory overload with all ages, especially the special needs, elderly or ill pets (noise, smells, lack of comfort, controlled social interactions (hopefully) but still intimidating hierarchy threats, etc).

 

  • There's no place like home where the environment is in a calm safe state to begin.

 

  • Must sign a waiver.
