QUESTION: I want to learn how to trim or cut my puppy pug nails when i give him a bath? i dotn take him to the grooming salon becasue its expensive and innecessary. pugs dont even have hair and my dog lives inside the house but i do give in a bath like every 2 weeks and i want to trim his nail….any tips or somewhere that is cheap?
ANSWER: First you really need to stop bathing him so much. You’ve stripped all the oils out of his coat and are drying both his skin and coat out pretty badly. Dogs should only be bathed when absolutely necessary and definitely not more than once a month. Give this poor puppy about 1 teaspoon of either olive oil or vegetable oil on his food daily to start repairing the damage.If you don’t know how to cut nails why not get them done at your vet’s office? They don’t charge very much to trim nails and the vet techs would be happy to show you how to do it so you can keep clipping them.
