In this video, a veterinarian and his assistant show you how to trim a dog's nails safely and quickly. To begin, you need to have a nail clipper, which you can buy at any pet store. Also, it is a good idea to have a product called Quick Stop, which you can use to stop the bleeding if you cut the dog's nails too short. Before you begin, try to have another person hold the dog's head away from you so it can't see what you're doing. Begin clipping the dog's nails just above the pink area, also called the quick, in the nail. Don't cut into the pink area, or the dog's nail will bleed. If the dog's nails are black, and you can't see the pink area, cut off just the tip, also called a cup.
