We give her one tablet (not sure the mg..what the vet told us to do)--she is about 40lbs. Our dog loves to go on rides, but he immediately starts whining/yelping when we start to drive (something about the drive bothers him). Of course, then he only gets his nails trimmed every once in a while, and it isn't often enough.After years of not clipping my dog's nails, the quick started growing long enough that it wasn't really feasible to cut the nails as far back as we'd've liked.
We give her one tablet (not sure the mg..what the vet told us to do)--she is about 40lbs.I think she just hates the feeling of the SNAP of the clippers. What you're dealing with here can be broken down into two parts: changing your dog's reaction to having her nails clipped, and then training her to remain still while the clipping occurs.For the first part, you'll desensitize her to the presence of the clippers, then to having her foot restrained, to the pressure on the nail, and to the sound of the blades -- each of these individually.So, let me ask again, are you willing to spend several weeks of daily training to get her to accept having her nails trimmed, or are you looking for something easier?Originally posted by e Jacqui: They always say to try to catch your pet while it's sleeping or sleepy.Put the clippers behind your back, tell her what a beautiful dog she is, then present the clippers again.

Over a period of a few days, she should become noticably more excited when you get out the clippers.

If she gets nervous when you mess with her feet, take a couple weeks teaching her that touching her toes equals Good Happy Things. I used this kind ( on my old dog and this kind ( on my cats.Catch her when she's happy, do some tummy rubs or pet her when she's sleepy. Originally posted by Sun Raven01: It's a valid question.Originally posted by rev_eng:we give our dog a motion sickness pill, and it knocks her out for car rides.I didn't think motion sickness pills would make you drowsy, but it works on her. We generally just have the dog groomers take care of it.It got to the point where 2 of us had to hld her while the vet trimmed her nails.
