I have a 12 year old terrier mix who absolutely will not let me trim his nails. I used to be a groomer, but he bites! His vet recommended surgery. He said the nails are cauterized to alleviate bleeding. My dog limps a lot and I'm not sure if it's related, butI want to do the right thing. His back nails have curled a bit. Help, please!
Surgery?? Or do you mean that the vet wants to sedate your pet in order to cut the nails short. If so, then I do not see a problem with this as long as your pet is healthy. vetcare
