At Dog Grooming Swansea we specialise in catering to animals with particular nail clipping needs. This process can easily be traumatising for any animal as it feels as though they are giving up complete control to a stranger. Just like humans, your animals nails are consistently growing and requiring clipping. Whether in a dog or cat, the proper clipping on their nails is very important.
