  1. A word of caution! Make sure you use the correct clippers. I used my husbands ( ssshhh! Don’t tell him) beard clippers to trim my senior Quapaw Chandler. Trimmed a piece of his paw pad raw :(. He was limping and had trouble squatting to poop and I panicked. Then , I noticed a bit of blood on the floor. Inspected his paw and Yep, I had trimmed it raw. Vet said just use Neosporin and he will be fine, but I will know the next time. Poor boy, I was just trying to help him get around better and made things worse.
