What happens if you don’t cut your fingernails?

What happens if you don’t cut your fingernails?

Finally, I got some time to make a post. Right now I’m waiting for some more supplies, that’s why I’m not making posts this week, also I have no time (as you know: school, the gym, chores). Anyway, let’s get started with today’s post.

However, if you take really good care of your hands, eat a diet for strong nails, and refrain from using your hands often, it is possible to keep growing your nail. Nails don’t stop growing, if they aren’t cut, filed, or broken, they will grow until they curl and curl and curl making most regular tasks difficult.

I’m guessing it will look like this:

Why Dogs Need Their Nails Trimmed?

When dogs spend a good deal of time outdoors, running on various hard surfaces, including concrete and blacktop, their nails are gradually worn down, and they have less of a need for formal nail-grooming sessions. But today, with many suburban and urban dogs increasingly confined indoors when their owners are at work, and running mostly on soft surfaces such as lawns when they are outdoors, this welcome friction is often absent in their daily lives.

Long, unkempt nails not only look unattractive, but over time they can do serious damage to your dog (not to mention your floors). When nails are so long that they constantly touch the ground, they exert force back into the nail bed, creating pain for the dog (imagine wearing a too-tight shoe) and pressure on the toe joint. Long term, this can actually realign the joints of the foreleg and make the foot looked flattened and splayed.

So the conclusion is: not cutting your nails = bad. Well, we found the answer, so I’m going to end the post right here.

  1. I believe some really important people in the old days did not cut their nails, to show that they did not have to use their hands for anything, as it was all done for them? (But I may have remembered this incorrectly!!)
    As to dog claws; yes, they do need trimming exactly as you say. My own Little Monkey gets a little shaved off her her claws every 2 months, even tho she walks all over the place and on hard ground too. I think when your dog gets older, they need more grooming! As she has black claws I get the vets to do the trimming!

    • I don’t need to cut my dog’s claws because she runs on hard surfaces every day, so it worns out easily. The people in the old days file their nails to shorten them, and they use their nails roughly so it worns out like dogs. But now we don’t use our nails that much, so we have to trim them.
