Nail Clipping & De-matting for pets in Dromore

Nail Clipping

There are lots of reasons why our pets’ nails grow long. Age, poor mobility and lifestyle are but a few. A lot of pet owners are confident at cutting their pets nails, but one should always be careful not to cut too deep and expose the sensitive tissue of the nail. Cutting to deep will cause considerable bleeding and could introduce infection. Our veterinary staff are very calm, patient and experienced at cutting nails.

Why should Barry’s Vets clip my pet’s nails?

When nails grow long and are not clipped this can have negative consequences for your pet. For example, they can catch and be partially torn from the toe, they can embed into your pets’ toes causing considerable pain and they can affect how your pet walks.

However, for some pets nail clipping will be too stressful. In these cases we believe that mild sedation relieves the stress for all concerned and allows a more thorough job. Let us take a look and advise what’s best to do – book a nail clipping appointment.



Most cats are very successful at keeping themselves clean and free from matts. However age, illness and a longer coat can mean they need help from time to time. Our nurses are excellent at removing matts and giving their coats a thorough comb through, all with the help of little sedation given and monitored by our vets.

It’s worth noting that dogs who are a little too fractious for a groomer can be clipped out under sedation at our practice – just contact our team who can help advise on a suitable booking for your pet.
