hi , Welcome to Chi people
i hope you can find a good vet in your area. i would ask around to everyone you know even if they dont have a dog, maybe they have a freind or relative that has one and can recommend a good vet in your area.
you dont have to take them to the vet to get there nails done. you can also find a good groomer. i take mine to petsmart but not all groomers are good. i found one guy i think is really good, so i always request him
