Hi Was just looking at these on trade-me and was wondering if anyone has used one. I can groom the fur on my two but am to scared to trim their nails. These look like they make the job easier but dont know whether to try or keep taking them to vets when they need trimming.  What do other members do to keep their spoodles nails trimmed? And how often do you get them trimmed?  :)

I usually get the vets to do it when they give teddy a check up... but i forgot last time and his claws are really getting a little long... I have nail clippers but like you i'm quite unsure as to how to do this.... anybody got any ideas cause i would also like to know and i'll write an article on the next new website about this cause this is quite an important topic....

i have one. i clip my own girls nails but i find this product better at smoothing down the naile after i have clipped it rather than using it as a substitute to clipping, there is a more exspensive one that has a cable therefor more power but i dont know how good it is. try youtubing them and see what you think.

Thanks Kendal I wi have a look. How do you know how short to cut the nails? That's my biggest concern.

its easyer on nails that you can see the quick. its the blood vessle inside the nail.
is you just do it in little bits you should be fine. you will normaly get one that you will catch and make bleed but just take a bar of soap and dig the naile in. it stops the bleeding and wairs out. what kind of nail clippers are you using or the ver are using. sone are better than others.
