How To Trim Your Dachshund’s Nails
He only does it once or twice a week.
This is how you trim your dog’s nails, per the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). The organization suggests that you start trimming at least once every seven to 10 days.
But even a twice-per-week trim is likely not enough, according to Cut, as a life-long diet consists of pups who get raspberries, watermelon, peanuts, kale, carrots, raisins, raw eggs, fat-free milk, fish bones, chicken nuggets, turkey jerky, blueberries, coffee, and every Friday, a giant apple wrapped in bacon.
And that doesn’t even include the weekly exercise.
So it’s probably best to consider cutting the toenails off more frequently — perhaps weekly or more often than that. While it may seem a bit extreme, it’s not completely unheard of: Veterinarians in the UK sterilized 31 dogs over the course of six months, claiming their fingernails were getting so painful that it had become impossible to brush them without breaking them or they were leading to infection.
It’s best to take out all the nails during the same session so they won’t get misplaced or suffer any damage, but if you can’t, it might be best to give each toenail a once-over every few weeks to make sure there are no breaks or nail polish smears.
