The quality guaranteed Stainless Steel Nail Trimmer by Safari is for petite dogs, puppies and small animals. The double-bladed guillotine trimmer has a long-lasting sharp cutting edge. To trim the dogs nail, hold the paw firmly and trim the tip of the nail with a single stroke. Be careful to stop short of the quick, which is the blood vessel inside of the nail. Trimming your dogs nails each month is sufficient.
