We have a big issue with trimming our Rottys nails. HE DOES NOT WANT TO HEAR IT!!!! He goes for walks regularly but it doesnt help. We've tried hand held motorized and non motorized files. The best we've been able to do was to see our vet for a prescription for Acepromazine to calm him enough to strap on a muzzle and hold him down and cut the nails. I do not think it is a good idea to continue using this method as I dont know what the long term affects of Acepromazine are and the unnecessary stress on him (its a wrestling match). The vet quoted a price of $250 to sedate and trim. Thats crazy. His nails grow like weeds and cutting the quick is unavoidable. Id be there every 3 weeks or so. Does anyone have ideas?
