This is my drill, which Mum uses to grind my nails. We do it out on the balcony, so the nail dust doesn't get onto the nice furniture or carpet in our house. She said she bought it at Lowes, after realizing that it doesn't draw blood like the nail cutter does. Also, it keeps my nails nicely rounded, without any of the sharp edges of cut nails. The other nice thing about having nails done, is that I get a tonne of treats. With every nail done, if I don't struggle too much, Mum rewards me with a nice jerky treat and lots of praise.
This is a close up view of my 'before grinding' nails. They are long ("but not that long Mum") and my Mum likes nails short and tidy. So here goes.
The trick about nail grinding is this - the grinder should only lightly touch all around the end of the nail. And the human needs to hold and support the paw pad and 'toe' firmly (as shown above), so the toe doesn't move all around as the grinder comes in contact with the nail.
Humans should grind one nail at a time, until the soft white inner portion is seen. Then it is time to stop. That nail is done.
Both nails now done.
