    If your dog is big you’re eventually going to need to get clippers for her. If you let the nails grow too long, the quick also grows long, and it’ll be difficult to clip her nails without cutting them too short. Clippers are only a few bucks online, so forgo a couple of fast food meals and take care of your dog properly! =)
