I am at my wit's end, trying to get Duncan's nails trimmed. The last time we tried at the vet's; it took 3 of us to try and hold him still enough, and even then we didn't get all of them done. He was just too stressed out.
I've tried everything I can think of to make it as easy and enjoyable as possible, but no luck. He puts up such a fight, I'm afraid he'll end of hurting himself or someone.
So, I've decided to have him knocked out, that way they can trim his nails as close as possible with the least amount of stress. I know it sounds drastic, but it's my last option. The vet suggested a pill to give him first over the phone before the procedure, until he found out the dog was a corgi. Seems the pills aren't good or don't work well for corgis. So, he'll be knocked out completely, nails trimmed, and then given a shot to wake him up.
What we do for our little furkids.
