RE: Claw from dogs,

From:"Johnston, Kathy"

I would treat them like we do toenails from humans.  Process them as you normally would for tissues on your processor, then as you go to cut them, let them soak in your waterbath for a few minutes to soften them up.  You should be able to get sections that cut like butter!
Hope this helps!!
