It is important that the nails of our cane corsos are checked periodically to avoid that these, being so long, can hurt the paws of our friends becoming ingrown, making them unable to walk or run well.
If our cane corso dog is one that goes out very often, it is not necessary to cut his nails constantly, since the asphalt itself or some other hard surfaces such as concrete, cobblestones or tar serve as enough files to reduce the size of the nails of our friends in each walk or stroll, but if he does not go out very often, he is more prone to run some of these risks of ingrown nails with the skin, for example, since his wear will not be too much and his nails will grow faster.
How do I know how long my cane corso’s nails are?
When you can barely hear his nails clacking and tapping against the floor at home, that is a good alert to trim his nails and notice that his nails protrude a little from his pads.
The best people to do this job are veterinarians or groomers, but you can also do it at home. Follow the steps below:
- Clean our cane corso’s paws very well, so that there is no dirt. It can be with water or with wet wipes.
- Make sure you are in a very well illuminated place so that there is no confusion and sit down.
- Locate the nail vein and preserve it so as not to cut it and only cut the excess.
- Cut the nail from edge to edge
- Repeat the same practice on all the other nails.
It is important to accustom our cane corso to this practice since every day he will be more docile and will be calmer now of cutting his nails. This learning process can take a few weeks.
A specific nail clipper sold in specialized pet stores is recommended.
