Dear Deborah,

I would suggest you have your veterinarian or groomer show you how to cut the nails so that you feel comfortable doing it. Have someone help you hold your dog and give a special treat after you trim a nail. I would not try to do all the nails at one time. If your dog is stressed after one nail, stop and try again tomorrow. You might also give Anxietrex for a week before attempting your nail trimming sessions. Does your dog have any other behavioral issues?

Best regards,

Dr. Char
