What is the quick? The quick of the nail is the fleshy section inside of it. It contains nerves and blood vessels – which means it’s painful if the quick is accidentally cut. Our groomers are trained to avoid this and always take care that your Dog Nail Trimming Glen Ellyn Il experience is pleasant and pain-free.
Why do nail growth rates vary so much among different kinds of dogs? For older, less active dogs, it may seem like their nails grow fast simply because the nails don’t wear down as much as they do with more active dogs. Also, based upon how often your dog walks on surfaces like concrete or asphalt, the nails will wear down more rapidly.
