Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question.
How big is Lily?Is it always you that tries to cut her nails?
What kind of trimmer are you using?
Great. Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.
Since sedatives and those trimmers aren't doing the trick, you may actually want to consider having a groomer trim Lily's nails.
Most groomers charge anywhere from $4 - $10 dollars to do it and it only takes a few minutes. In most places, you don't even need an actual appointment, you can just wander in and they'll do it.
If you want to continue trying to do it at home, you may need to give your vet a call and ask them about sending out a medication like Acepromazine or Clomicalm or Alprazolam to see if those will make it easier on Lily and you.
I hope this helps.
