Best Great Dane Nail Care Products

While it can be easy to overlook, nail care is essential for your Great Dane.

As a giant breed, your Great Dane’s paws take on more work than smaller breeds. If pad and nail care aren’t taken seriously, they could experience orthopedic, gait, or posture issues.

Which nail clippers should I get for my Great Dane?

Depending on which product you feel more comfortable using, we have two recommendations for nail clippers.

Best scissor-style clippers

The first is the nail clipper, which is a scissor style clipper. This style provides great cutting power for quickly trimming your Great Dane’s nails. However, you’ll want to be careful to not cut too deeply into their quick!

Best dremel nail trimmers

Our second recommendation is for the dremel instead of scissor action for shortening your Great Dane’s nails.

Dremels trim the nail more slowly and lessen the chances of hitting the dog’s quick. However, some Great Danes are not a fan of the vibration sensation. Just something to consider when choosing between a scissor style and dremel nail trimmer.

Dremel 7350 Dog Nail Grinder

This kit allows you to quickly, easily and safely trim your pet's nails. The rechargeable, battery-powered device uses a 60-grit sanding drum to comfortably trim toenails in a manner that is designed to be harmless and humane.

Best Styptic (Clotting) Agent

Regardless of which clipper type you go with, you absolutely want to keep some styptic powder on hand in case you do cut into the quick. styptic powder acts as a clotting agent to quickly stop the bleeding and lessen the chance of mess or infection.

It only takes tiny bit of the powder to clot up a cut, so even a small bottle lasts a long time. We recommend the Remedy+ Professional Groomer’s styptic powder.
