We adopted a bulldog 2 days ago. All of her nails but 3 are black- 3 (on the same paw) are white/pale and overgrown. She will not let us trim them (she let us trim the others). Also, all of her pads but the three associated with the pale nails are black. The pads with the pale nails are white/pink. When we try to clean the pads or touch them, she pulls it away as it if hurts. Any suggestions as to what the issue may be? She had a checkup with our vet yesterday, but the vet did not notice this issue.
How old is your Baby? Elmo use to hate his nails to be cut, so I started giving him a treat before and after, now he doesn't mind because he know he gets a treat. Love My Boy Elmo, YO YO.
My girl is 4 years old. We did use a dremmel tool to cut her nails. She didn't mind it until we got to the three discolored/white nails. I think there is some sort of pain/issue with these three nails, but we'll give her treats the next time we try too to help make it more of a positive experience. Thanks!
Thank you for your advice! We spent a few days touching and playing with her paw so she was more comfortable with the idea. We tried nail trimming today with treats and a lot of affection & calmness. She let us trim her three overgrown white nails.
Wonderful Sweet Bully Baby, I am so glad that she is more comfortable with her paws. Love and Kisses to Karma.
Since these are different colored nails (which is totally common for dogs to have different color nails), she may of had a bad experience like other people have said. It's harder to see the quick with black nails. So my thoughts are that someone in her past cut her nail too low and now she's freaked out by it.
