    hi everyone. my dog is in desperate need for his nails cutting. im too scared to do it myself incase i end up hurting him.

    my question is will a dog groomer just clip his nails without me having to have his hair cut (he is the sort of dog who doesnt need his hair cutting)

    or can i take him to a vet to get them cut???

    any help will be much appreciated

    Thanks
    Clair :)

    I am not sure about the dog groomer doing it but you can always ring up and ask them if they can just cut his nails? I do mine my self but I know the vets will do it if you can't. x

    Yes groomers will cut the nails for you and charge between £8 and £10. depending where you live and the costs there. Your vets will charge more. xx

    the groomers that i work at do the nails only for £5. vets would cost much more, my vet charged me £13 to have my rabbit's nails clipped.

    Might be worth giving a local groomer a call and asking for a price and getting them to show you how to do it when you go in :) Then you can do it yourself in the future :)

    Our local petshop clip ours for a small charge so may be worth trying them.
