Keeping your pet’s nails trimmed is an important part of regular grooming. How often your pet’s nails need to be cut is dependent on several factors including:
Breed: Smaller dogs need their nails trimmed more often than larger, active breeds. A small dog’s nails tend to grow faster, so they may need a trim every two weeks.
Age: Older dogs tend to be more sedentary. As a result, they do not wear their nails down as much through exercise.
Activity level: Active dogs have a tendency to keep their nails short all on their own. Their constant movement keeps their nails filed. An active dog may only need a trim once every few months.
