VCA City Cats Hospital

Arlington Nail Trimming

Our hospital offers nail trimming for your pet. Trimming nails is not just an essential part of grooming, it is important for your pet's health as well. Untrimmed nails may break, bleed profusely and even become infected. Long nails often get caught on furniture or clothing and may be torn loose from the toe. Long nails can even curl and grow back into your pet's footpad, making it painful or difficult to walk. If you are hearing your pet's nails click on the floor or the nails are getting caught in the rug, chances are it is time for a trim. Ask our staff if you are interested in learning how to properly trim your pet's nails at home or call to schedule an appointment for a nail trim.
