money by clipping your pet's nails yourself
Many people are
nervous about cutting their own pets nails, even though dogs
and cats with nails that are too long can cause problems,
not to mention the cost associated with it if you have to
pay someone to do it when needed. Fortunately it is quite
easy to do it yourself, once you learn how.
First, buy nail
clippers their specific to your pet. Do not use cat nail clippers
on your dog or vice versa. Also, look for clippers that come
with a special nail guard, so you cannot cut off too much
nail at a time, which is what most people are worried most
Make your pet comfortable
with having her paws touched. Some pets are extremely sensitive,
but if you make a point of touching them during a regular
routine when you pet them, they will become less skittish
about having their paws touched.
Leave the nail
clippers out and about, so that they aren't something new
and strange you are suddenly approaching them with.
If you are nervous
the first time you clip your pet's nails, practice by just
clipping the very tips. That way, you don't need to worry
about cutting off too much and clipping the vein, and you
also get your pet used to the experience. And soonthey will
begin to think of it is no big deal to have done.
Also, don't be
scared to ask your pet or groomer to show you how they clipped
your pet snails. They are the best people to train you, especially
on how they clip your specific pet. if you use their technique,
your pet will tolerate the experience much better.
