XTRAWLD Posted January 9, 2016 Share Posted January 9, 2016 2016 resolution: Get Ryder's nails down to a proper length! I grind his nails. I learned with Kasey that greyhound nails are too tough for me to cut with clippers, and I don't like the splintering either. Ryder is not the biggest fan of grinding but he tolerates it, whereas Kasey used to just fall asleep during his pawdicure. I do not have to grind his nails too far to already get to the quick. We are currently at a 6 week grinding schedule on growth since his quick is really long. I know that the more you do, the more the quick will recede but for some reason, this has not worked on him. I tried grinding a little bit each week, but really I can't get very far until I hit the quick. I'm also thinking I might be shaping his nails wrong, and that might be contributing to the length of the nails, the length of the quick and potentially his occasional limping. Shots of well trimmed normal nails are appreciated, or a diagram of the proper shape a greyhounds nail should look like. 2016 = shorter nails for Ryder with the help of GT Quote Proudly owned by:10 year old "Ryder" CR Redman Gotcha May 201012.5 year old Angel "Kasey" Goodbye Kasey Gotcha July 2005-Aug 1, 2015 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
