Should I Cut or Grind my ESA Dog's Nails? Guide 2021

There can often be nothing as intimidating as the nails of your canine. When the time comes to trim them and take care of some grooming requirements, dogs can become quite rebellious. Both you and your dog need to make this process rewarding and relaxed to avoid making the wrong association once and for all.

After all, you do want your emotional support animal to be nothing but happy. These animals are even more valued by their owners than the good old regular pets. You cherish every moment spent with your very own emotional support dog and can dogs eat cheese, yes.

As Simple As 1, 2, 3…

You can still remember the time when you felt so much apprehension regarding being able to have the best dog in the world follow you around wherever you go. You didn’t think it could be possible to have this dog with you during flights and at public places otherwise barred to all kinds of pets.

All you had to do was find the right website and fill in an application form. It was in no more than two weeks that you had your esa letter arrive at your doorstep. And the rest, as they say, was history. All of a sudden, other people would be answerable for not letting your animal accompany you to your heart’s content.

Every owner hopes that when the time comes to trim those nails, there are no hard feelings from both sides. The process can become stressful for the owner and pet because of any wrong moves.

Do remember that this has nothing to do with the level of intelligence or agreeableness of your emotional support animal. It can be stated with confidence that even the esa letter for housing can find it hard to not feel apprehensive or nervous when they see their nails being trimmed. From the outset, it is important to not cause any pain or discomfort.

Avoid the Wrong Associations…

If that furry pawed canine feels any negative sensations while cutting nails like excessive tugging, pain, or bleeding; it can create an association of pain whenever these animals see those dreaded clippers.

That is hardly the way to go, right?

You obviously don’t want to be in a situation in which you have to force the clippers on a yelping dog, possibly hurting them in the process.

The first thing you need to decide upon is the kind of tool you can use to get the job done effectively, minus the fuss…

Well, it depends upon the texture of your dog’s nails and their personal preferences.

Grinders or Clippers?

Some breeds have quite coarse nails that are harder to grind. These nails can be trimmed more efficiently and conveniently by using clippers. A decent and utilitarian pair of dog nail clippers will do. Clippers are sharp and fast. But there are a few things you need to consider.

Clippers that need more force to be able to do their job are a no-no because they can make that dig more nervous and fearful. Also, there is a spot near the top of each nail that is quite richly supplied by blood vessels. You must not hurt the dog over here because this can cause a lot of pain and even bleeding. However, can dogs eat cucumbers, yes they are healthy.

Grinding tools are easier because they can allow you and your pet to relax. They are not intimidating in general but if your pet is afraid of the vibration and humming sound, grinders may not be their cup of tea, although they do save the quick of the nail. There are fewer chances of that dear emotional support dog of yours getting hurt with a grinder.

If the nails are too thick, you better pick clippers shaped like scissors in the first place.

Make sure you mete out the best treatment when it comes to your furball of a dog. These cuddly manes have been your comfort and support, after all! Happy nail trimming!
