A question on clipping a Ruby's nails
I'm wishing to know what other members do when it comes to nail clipping? Do you use a Groomer or are you confident enough to do them yourself? If so, could anyone share any ideas on a good pair of clippers, please?
I understand if you can hear the nails "clicking" on tile flooring, then they're too long.This doesn't seem to be the case with Scarlett, what I believe I hear is her pads sort of "clapping" the floor when trotting along :confused:
Scarlett is in the last part of her season and has been inside whilst she has been in "flow".I'm just wondering if this is why they seem a little longer and maybe sharper.Scarlett leapt on me after I'm came down from having a bath the other evening and left scratch marks on my calf.This isn't an issue of course but it did leave a red mark, so I'm wondering if this could be an indication that they could do with a trim?
Also, with Scarlett being a Ruby her nails are quite dark.I know the quick only runs down so far but I'm worried I may go too far and scare her for life :eek:
Any advice is much appreciated
Edit - Re my mentioning Scarlett's season, Jonathan and I have planned on having her spayed April/May time, once we've calculated her full, first season to ensure it is done between seasons :)
