Clipping of nails

Most pets getting regular exercise with access to a hard surface wont need regular nail clipping. If your pet does however need their nails clipped then one of our vets or qualified veterinary nurses would be happy to do it for you or even demonstrate how to do yourself for in the future.


Cats or dogs nails should not grow further than the pads on their paws. If they do this can be very uncomfortable and may lead to the nail growing into the pad themselves which can cause infection and is very painful.


If you are unsure whether your pets nails are too long or not then just ask at one of our branches for one of our staff to have a quick look at your pet.


Small animals such as guinea pigs and rabbits can also benefit from getting their nails clipped.
