Dewclaws
by: Donna

Like the nails, you have to keep the dewclaws trimmed short at least once every two weeks.

If you can't do it, have your vet do it for you especially if it is digging into his pad. This area will become infected. This is obviously painful for your dog. Then, keep up with the trimming.

Do not let the vet remove his dewclaws. Once his dewclaws have been cut back, again, keep them trimmed.

Here is an excellent article on dewclaws. Copy and paste the URL into your browser.
