What is your sphynx dislikes at grooming time?
I hope so too!! He's such a naughty boy!! Did you see on his FB page that he took on a Labrador the other dayOoooh, Mug-Y, you naughty little boy, hurting your momma--hopefully you will learn that she is only trying to keep you healthy and happy. And lacerating your vets arm??? OUCH!!!
Awww first things first, get Sophie into the habit...once you start cleaning her nails do not stop. It won't be fun but if she knows you won't give in, then as time goes by she will get accustomed to the idea. I would also do her nail cleaning right after her bath when she is wrapped into a towel,,then you can pull one paw out at a time (this takes practice, it did for me anyhow, lol) and clean them that way. I hope this helps, I believe there are more threads on suggestions as well, just search nail cleaning.Sophie hates all of the above but especially HATES the nail cleaning. I try my hardest to loosen the gunk by first applying coconut oil before the bath, then I use warm water to dip the baby wipe in and mix in some ear cleaner to wipe her nails. She SCREAMS WILD JUNGLE CAT CRAZY when I wipe her nails. It usually takes days to get them all. Any help in this area would greatly help if anyone knows a way.
