    People on blood thinners are really extra sensitive. A long sleeve shirt won't do the trick, (says a person who hangs their head very low because of her bulldog that ripped a visiting friends leg open) He had thick jeans on. I try to keep his nails short but it sometimes just happens. What I do with scratchy boy is trim them and put socks on him, yes I know I am crazy but he keeps them on and no one gets scratched anymore...

    I have ran into the same problem with Belle. I have found nothing!!! Except a professional nail filer from a beuaty supply store. It takes a lot of time. But I have found it to be the best after her nails are cliped. Another thing to think about is letting people know of the hazard. " and how it makes you feel" and ask if they would kindly wear long sleeves to reduce the chances of it happening agian. Good luck.

    I dont know if Tank would wear socks. He thinks being dressed is bully abuse and throws a fit

    we use a dremmel on sarah and it does a good job. on her black nails i just file them a bit at a time and she usually will try to pull away or get figity after a bit so i stop as i think this is when it getting close to the quick. just file for a few seconds and stop then file for a few seconds and stop. sometimes i switch nails and go back and forth so it doesnt get to hot. ive been doing sarahs myself for a while and ive never once made her bleed or anything so dont be scared to do it. i think the doggie booties are a good idea to. maybe some tape around the top of the sock to keep it on. good luck
