Dog Paw Health Tips: 7 Things You Need To Know


Trim Paw Hairs

trim dog pay hairMany breeds of dogs have hair that grows between the nails and pads of their paws.

Many people are aware of the need to cut their dog’s nails on a regular basis, but many are unaware that it is important to keep these paw hairs neatly trimmed as well.

Trim them back so they’re roughly even with the pads.

The reason is mostly comfort for your pet.


These little hairs are easily tangled and matted with dirt, twigs, and others things picked up on walks and in the yard.

It’s uncomfortable for your dog, and can potentially have an impact on your dog’s overall health.
