This is incredible. My tiny dog fights like a demon when I try to clip his nails. I've had friends and family come over to hold him while I clip, to no avail. I tried sedatives. I even tried making my own bag to stick him in. His nails, grown so long, were starting to hurt his paws to the point of him chewing his feet. I gave in and bought this for him and had his nails trimmed in about five minutes. He still tried to fight, but the velcro and zippers kept him from pulling his limbs back. This is 100% worth the money.
Used to psychologically get our returned feral boy to behave while visiting his siblings. I monitored him in this product on the first day and all went fine. The next day, I repeated as before, with "Friendly" in the bag and watched some TV. It wasn't long, and he was able to slip out and then attacked one of his brothers (he changed when he went feral and came back hating other cats). There was a fight, but thankfully no real injuries. The bag was undamaged. Several months later, I placed him in it again, then placed him inside of another type full-zipper cat bag and that was enough to keep him restricted. I'm trying to get him resocialized, one day at a time. May want to use a safety pin or additional velcro devices to secure the bag.
Holy crap this was not easy to use. All of you cat lovers we all know we cannot force a cat to do ANYTHING! We are permitted to be in their lives. The fight was on with my very lovable easy going grey cat Smokie. This cat will let me pick him up and love on him. So, of course I used it on him first. This was a legit FIGHT! I finally took him down in round 3 and got the Stupid thing on and secured. Fyi, Boo my tuxedo saw round 1 looked at me as if to say " I will kill you in your sleep if you put me in that!" Needless to say it is not easy to put on a cat. Oh, sure once on I was able to cut Smokie's front claws. However, if you don't mind looking like you fought WOLVERINE everytime you clip your cat's nails buy all means buy it. As for me I am returning it.
Well we received this yesterday and used it today. First time ever we got to trim all nails at the same time. Fit was pretty good we have a 15 lb cat and we ordered the medium size. Was snug but good. Little extra room in length. No bites or scratches! Not that he is bad just likes to play. There was no need to hang because there was two of us and the cat just went docile.
We purchased this at around 20 dollars & feel that it is sturdy and well built - very fair price range. We bought it for a small dog (around 15 lbs.) that bites us when we try to do his nails. We've tried a couple of different types of clippers as well as one of those dromel sander things - he'll have none of it. So, we put him in this bag, which he allowed us to do. He's normally a very cooperative dog. When it came time to clip the first tiny nail, however, he was able to twist his head in such a fashion as to nearly bite us. With 2 people, the bag, and a muzzle, we were finally able to clip this tiny fighting dog's nails. So, it ended up not being any easier than anything else we've tried. We are keeping it, though, because we have 2 cats that it may end up being handy for.
We didn't try using it for bathing, because our little monster likes baths - just has a nail clipping phobia. Probably something from his past. You never know what shelter dogs have been through before you adopt them. Anyways, I don't see how this would work for bathing. It seems that too much of the animal would be covered. I would be afraid that soap would be left on my pet & cause them to itch. The advertising says it can be used in such a manner, but if that's what you want to use it for, I would go through the reviews and see if anybody has had luck with this, because I just can't fathom how that would work.
Great quality - materials, workmanship, and design. Just didn't work for us. Will update if one of my cats ends up having to take medication or something. I'm hoping it will work better for that. No need to clip their nails in the bag. They are more cooperative than my little dog.
Update: We have since had to return this bag. One of my cat's ended up with a urinary tract infection & ended up on meds as a result. We put her in the bag and hung it in order to give her the pill. She fought, shifting the weight of the bag. The zipper slid enough due to her movements that she fell on her head. We did not have it hanging high (thank goodness), but we do have ceramic floors. My cat seems fine, but I won't use this again. I am giving it 3 stars because I feel this bag could be useful for some animals - just not ours. Try to hang it low, though, just in case. Or perhaps, one could find a way to keep the zipper from opening (a safety pin, maybe?) There's no way for us to try this again with our cat. After her experience, there is no way we would be able to get her back in the bag.
This works great for us. We have two cats, a large Munchkin with 3 inch long legs, and an even larger Savannah who is built like a Cheetah. They both hate to have their nails trimmed and we were paying a groomer $30 a month. We open the bag and lay it on the floor and set the cat down on the open bag. We then fasten the velcro around the neck and zip the back. For the Savannah, we open the front leg openings before setting him on the bag. His legs are too long to fit in the bag all at once.
They growl a little once in the bag but it is easy to cut their nail at that point and it only takes a few minutes. Strongly advise using a face mask after getting them in the bag as it will help calm them..
I'm sure this would work for some cats. My cat however, turned into a snarling, spitting, hissing hellcat of rage. She started twisting and rolling across the coffee table yeowling like I stuck her in a live lobster tank. I had to don oven mitts to get her back out of it.
I bought this for my two Italian greyhounds who are prepared to fight to the death every time they need their nails clipped. I put them in this and they become submissive zombies. My husband holds it up by the handle and I clip and file their nails in 5 minutes. I am way less likely to snip too far and hurt them now. Worth the money.
I got this in the hopes that I would be able to use it on my kitten to get her to let me clip her nails. It was a complete failure. I'm still giving it 4 stars because I think it's a really good device, but I still had a really hard time with it. My kitten is 7 months old and just screams bloody murder if I try to cut her nails. I was able to get her into this device and she screamed and wailed the whole time which was really awful. I was able to get one paw out of the front and clip those nails while she struggled and tried to bite me. The second paw was more difficult, and after that it was impossible. I wasn't able to get the back legs out. I honestly just have to take her to get sedated before clipping her nails. She's a jerk. Cool product though.
This bag is amazing! Our kitty didn’t like the bag at first but once he was in, he got really comfortable and didn’t mind. He let me trim his nails and put on nail caps easily. I would definitely recommend fastening the neck part first and then putting the front paws in next. It made it a lot easier. I left the back part zipped so he could sit in there. I put him on the bathroom hook while I took care of him. He went and laid in it after I unzipped it.
