How can I help recede the quick in my dog's nails?

Our question this week was:

Besides frequent nail trims, is there anything that can be used to force/help a quick recede in a dogs nail that is over grown? Or is the only other way to get an over grown nail short enough to be comfortable for the dog walking is to cut pass the quick?

Dear Shanette,

Thanks for your email. You wrote asking how to help recede the quick in a dogs nail that is overgrown. The only way I know is to trim them once a week. Cut them frequently.

A couple articles that might be useful are:

Best of Luck
