We recommend removing the grips before nail trims and replacing them after. There are several benefits to this:
- Because the nail grows from the nail bed rather than the tip, you will not be able to trim them without pushing the ToeGrips® dog nail grips up the nails. Pulling the ToeGrips® dog nail grips back down into the GripZoneTM after the nail trim is much more challenging than working them into proper position when applying.
- Sometimes trimming the nail through the grip results in a hook at the bottom of the nail that prevents the ToeGrip® dog nail grip from resting in the GripZoneTM and/or keeps the material from hitting the floor before the nails, which is what enables traction.
When you replace the ToeGrips® dog nail grips after a nail trim, you can rotate them—putting a “fresh” section in the GripZoneTM. Doing this will make your dog’s ToeGrips last longer!
