Tyler is a pain in the but to cut his nails ... he squrims so much. I am thankful he has one white nail on each of his front paws makes it a little easier to cut I cut the white one first and base the rest of his nails off that one.

Calleigh freaks out when I cut her nails (and I have never cut into the quick). She squirms and literally screams if I even get close with clippers in hand. This last time I decided to try trimming the while she was in the tub getting a bath and she did a lot better. Still didn't "like" it, but I guess either the warm water calmed her down, or she was more afraid of drowning than she was of the clippers.

I did Aurora's nails just the other day and thankfully she only has one black toe nail on each paw so that made it simple. I keep cornstarch or flour near by in a small cup. Working with a vet previously having a small cup near by was much easier to use as you place the dogs paw in the small cup rather than trying to put the flour/cornstarch/quik stop on the nail.

Thankfully I haven't nipped Aurora's quick, nor any previous pets, but I've seen a vet do it!

Years ago when we had a large breed with black nails the vet clipped him too far after his neuter, and he didn't start bleeding until he was in the car on the way home!! Man can the quick bleed!!
