Spinone have webbed feet so between the pads should always be kept free from dirt, stones, grass seeds etc. This can be done by gently separating the pads while placing each foot into warm water, gently dry in between the webs.

Nails can be trimmed with a suitable pair of nail clippers, only cut a slither of the nail.  If too much is removed the quick can be cut causing considerable bleeding, a Silver Nitrate stick is useful to keep in stock as this acts as a stiptic and arrests any bleeding.  If the nails are trimmed each week the quick will move back this will then enable you to leave the nail trimming for a longer period of time and then trim a slightly larger piece of nail.

Most Spinone have their back Dew Claws removed when just a few days old.  Remember to cut the front ones when dealing with the other nails.
