2/1/2020: While we do our best to accommodate walk-in nail trims and other services, moving forward if you need more than two services, an appointment will need to be made. For instance; nails and sani are fine, however nails, sani, and feet trim would need an appointment. We will be able to work these appointments in, usually within a few days. Thank you for your understanding.
Dogs: Nail care is very important. If dogs are not walked on hard ground, their nails tend to grow quickly. If their nails grow too long, it can lead to sprung toes in athletic breed and turned out toes in severe cases. Also, ingrown nails, especially dew claws (the nails at the sides of the front and sometimes back paws) need to be checked regularly by you as they do not get pared back when your dog is walking. Keeping nails short and blunt, often prevent injuries and splitting, bleeding nails, including subsequent expensive emergency room visits. We can clip your dog’s nails for just $10 and show you how to do it if you want to maintain their nail health on your own in the future.

Cat nails can be very sharp as you know. We can trim their front & back claws for you to reduce incidences of scratching and damage. Claws are an important part of a cat’s anatomy and we do not recommend de-clawing. Cats shed their nails and utilize their pads and scratching behavior to “mark” their territory. Providing scratching posts and learning how to train them are very important for your cat’s health. Please read about declawing before you think about having this surgery done – it is outlawed in 25 countries and is considered to be cruel. Only $10 for a nail trim at the shop. We will be happy to show you how to trim your cat’s nails – it can be very simple!
