2. If you only get a drop or 2 of blood, it smarts for them a bit
but if you apply the clotting powder or liquid with a pain reliever it stops almost immediately upon applicaiton.

If you seriously hit the quick. IT can hurt them for quite a while.

I know alot of folks are starting to use the dremel tool on their dogs, it files them down and makes them smooth so the nails won't cause scratches on the dogs or you.

Then there is the whole "black nail" thing.
My dog has black nails cuz he's a black dog. A chihuahua...the most beautiful...ok back on subject.
They are very difficult to cut. So I trim them every 2 weeks to keep the quick back. His nails are pretty short but. I don't want to take the chance of the quick growing far out.
