@Sugaree:  Have you shown them your dog’s nails or at least called to complain?  It’s important that they know.

I agree. You need to call the office and share your concern. I wonder if it is the vet techs that clip the nails, and someone who has just started isn’t sure what they’re doing. But since they’re actually hurting your dog you need to let them know!!

That would make me mad too. When I had my dog neutered they did a “complimentary” nail trim and quicked at least 3 of his nails, poor guy. I was pretty pissed at the time.

Once is an accident, it’s easy to cut the nail too short. If it’s a reoccurring issue, I would tell the vet.

Do they take your dog out of the room? I would not go to a vet that takes my dog out of my sight to do something. They should let you see what’s happening the whole time. And SPEAK UP! If they get out the nail-trimmer, say “we don’t want his nails trimmed this time”.

Also, if he’s still limping around, it sounds like maybe you’re favoring/babying him about it? Dogs get over stuff like that pretty quick, he should act fine within minutes, and certainly by the next day. But they will milk it if they are getting extra attention/coddling/pampering.

Definitely tell the vet ASAP! Also, if it’s oozing blood over your furniture/home, they should have some “quik-stop” or recommendations (super glue) to keep it from continuing at home!

@Sugaree:  Good luck!  I hope it doesn’t happen again.
