clipping nails

July 21st, 2001, 09:31 PM
Can I clip my dogs nails very short if they have not been done for a very long time. My vet has given me some Valium to give to her so she will settle down. I want to know if it will hurt her if I clip them really short. I realize that they may bleed. Will that hurt the nail?
