My GCC's nails are pretty overgrown. I've noticed when she walks (especially on flat surfaces) she's pretty much walking on her nails. I haven't been able to find a groomer/vet in the area that's willing to clip her nails (her regular vet is 2 hours away), and clipping her nails at home is a very stressful (for both of us) and painful (for me) process, so unfortunately I've just let the problem get away from me. I tried clipping some a few weeks ago. She has black nails and it's hard to see the quicks, so I started by clipping the smallest bit I could, but she started bleeding on the first nail, which has never happened before. I applied Miracle Care Kwik Stop Styptic Powder and she's all fine now. I was looking at her in the sunlight just earlier, and am I right in thinking the quicks are all the way to the end of her nail? Most of them haven't been clipped in months, so I'm unsure how to clip them and get the quicks to recede. Any advice is appreciated!
