    We like the look of banana ears but not banana toe nails. Not only are these nails hurtful to look at but it is also painful to the animal. This not only effects appearance, it affects the foot, leg and spine; this ultimately affects function.

    This is the same llama after the nails have been cut. The entire process is not done at one time. Due to the fact the toe has swollen, recheck one week later and trim again. Keep up with this method until the swelling goes down and there is not excess nail growth within a week.

    This photo shows the pad and the quick of the toenail. And this photo indicates an animal that needs it toe nails clipped a little bit - look closely.

    This photo shows the pad and the quick of the toenail. And this photo indicates an animal that needs it toe nails clipped a little bit - look closely. Once again, notice the quick between the pad and nail. I can't emphasize the quick enough.

    This photo shows the quick well, you see the foot pad and tip of nail with the quick inbetween. Watch for pink/cream color for the quick.

    This is another foot that needs their nail cut, recogize this. You can not always tell if a toe nail needs cut by looking from the top.
