Whether it's a feline friend or a canine companion, there are plenty of ways to enjoy and care for your pets no matter your level of vision.
If you're a dog person, use all your senses to help your dog stay healthy. It's time for your dog's bath when your hands feel oily or smell doggy after giving him a pat.
Your sense of smell will also tell you if your dog's ears are clogged with hair, which sometimes causes an infection. If the ears smell at all, the impacted hair might need to be removed.
If you hear the click clack of your dog's nails on the floor or hear them snagging on carpets, the nails might need a trim.
You may trim the nails yourself by using a clipper with a guard, then you won't cut the nails too short.
