    DefaultDog nails....question

    So I've been doing my dogs nails every few days with the dremel. But I don't know if I'm doing any good or not because I really don't know how far I can go....especially with Sammi's black nails. I may not be getting anywhere near the quick for all I know. Sammi is always pulling her paw away so I don't know if she just hates the process and will always pull or if I'm close to the quick and it's hurting her.

    I CAN see thru Holly's nails somewhat. I see the pinkness of the quick thru her nails but does it extend farther than what I can see?

    Look at the pictures on Doberdawn's website. They explain a lot on how to look for the quick in black nails.

    Oh, and FWIW, even if you accidentally quick the nail with the dremel, it won't be nearly as bloody and traumatic as doing it with nail clippers.
