Both are great services but they’re very different. We want to work together to figure out which environment your pet will thrive in.
Take into consideration that our House Call services eliminates the amount of stress and stimulation that comes with a car ride, time waiting in line and contact with other pets. In addition the time it takes out of your already busy schedule!
Dogs: The ideal nail length is short enough to not hear them clicking on the floor when they walk. Once at the preferred length most customers stick to a monthly schedule.
Cats: We have found 4 weeks is sufficient to keep an ideal length.
Due to the limited availability of our one on one specialized services, we are not available to take any new clients that are wanting nail trims less frequent than monthly. Alternatively you can check out our monthly nail trim clinics in denver and surrounding areas.
If your dog is comfortable with it, we prefer to clip then file with a Dremel rather than just using nail clippers. Filing leaves a smooth surface and allows us to safely get their nails much shorter than a traditional nail trim. In addition the dremel doesn't create that uncomfortable pressure that nail clippers create when close to your dog's quick.
Cats: We only clip cat nails.
This is actually a very common misconception. Dog paws are naturally thick, but they should not be overly dry. Dry dog paws are more prone to injury from splitting and cracking while healthy moisturized paw pads are more flexible and will actually allow for dogs to get a better grip!
Maybe you have noticed. Cat nail trims go by quickly!
Working with cats is like holding a stick of TNT. Their “fuse” is much smaller than a dog's. You have to move quickly and efficiently to make the process as smooth as possible to avoid injury to pet and professional.
