I had to clip the nails on a pug today (nail clip only) I went to the run got the dog out took it to the grooming room and clipped its nails. I then put the dog back in his run until the customer came in to pick it up. (No blood anywhere-run- grooming table-me) They picked up the dog about two hours later and claimed that the dog was limping because the nail was cut to short (still no blood).
I was busy when they came to pick up the dog. So after I found out what they were claiming I called them to tell them that I nothing happened while the dog was in my care. They called the owner of the kennel saying that the dogs nail was bleeding and they wanted to know how to stop it. I told my boss to tell them to bring the dog back and I would look at it. They came back and still no blood they could not even tell me what nail was bleeding.
Anyhow if you cut a nail to short will it make the dog limp? I have never seen a dog limp from this I just wanted to know if any of you have???
I have already told the boss that I will not be clipping nails unless they get a bath or a full groom. Itís not worth the head ache to clip nails for people that are to cheep to even spring for a bath.
