Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
We recommend trimming your dog’s nails, every 4 to 6 weeks. Regular nail trimming helps to keep the quick (the blood supply to the nail) short, which prevents the nails from becoming overgrown. Some dogs will naturally wear their nails down and may not require trimming as frequently. If left too long, nails can grow into your dog’s paw pads, which can be painful and become infected.
How often should I get my dog’s ears cleaned?
This varies based the anatomy of your dog’s ears and their lifestyle. For most dogs, once every two weeks is adequate. Dogs who have heavy, floppy ears, swim regularly or those prone to allergies or ear infections will need their ears cleaned more frequently. It is important to use an ear cleaner specifically for animals.
What are some of the ear cleaning services that you provide?
We can assist you with cleaning your dog’s ears and can show you how to do so at home. Proper ear hygiene can help to prevent ear infections and allow you to be familiar with what is normal for your dog. Please contact Cumberland Veterinary Clinic if you are not sure how to properly clean the ears, or how often it is required.
