Pay attention to regular nail trimming
Another important product for keeping your French bulldog’s paws healthy is a professional nail grooming tool. Note that a dog’s nails should be trimmed to a certain limit, to a so-called quick. In case you hurt the Frenchie’s quick, his paw will start bleeding and require a vet visit.
Generally speaking, it’s known that dogs usually don’t feel comfortable when it comes the time for nail trimming. However, you must do that for his sake. Long nails can cause serious pains and even develop an infection. In extreme cases, a Frenchie’s paws can even become arthristic. When the slightest touch is painful to your dog, he will fuss when you pick up his paw to cut nails.
This nail groomer works on rechargeable batteries, it’s super quiet and will not make any pains. I highly advise you to first allow your dog to sniff the unknown item to escape the fear of nail grooming. Giving him treats can also be very useful because in that way you’ll occupy his attention.
