To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
A little bit of maneuvering to get her into the bag. Once in and pass we’re popped out she had no issue. I just hung her on the bath towel hook and then I was about a 5 minute trim. Worked surprisingly well.
I've been clipping animal nails for years, but our most recent rescue (a 10 month old kitten) was more challenging than most! Tired of the fighting and inevitable scratches, I ordered this and truly expected to be sending it back. I could not have been more wrong! I tossed it on the couch and Rocket immediately jumped up to investigate. I grabbed him and it took a bit of manipulating to get him in the bag, but once in he seemed to mostly settle down. This was the easiest clipping of nails I've ever done!
Some of the reviews I believe mentioned concerns about the "mesh" areas. This mesh is actually a pretty heavy duty rubbery plastic material, not fabric. It held up well for me and I was glad to know there was adequate air circulation.
Worked amazingly! Only regret is not getting a larger one. She’s not a big cat and she JUST got in a large. Order up! Otherwise this thing is amazing! Gracie FROZE while in it. It was seriously super easy to use. Def 2 person job to get her in it and after reading other reviews I put the neck/collar thing around first and that was the best advice. Get collar part secured first!!! Buy this!!!! Took less than a min to clip all four paws!
Fits my Sky perfectly. I use it for trimming nails, putting in nail caps, and brushing her teeth. It keeps her calm and prevents her from squirming around too much....Great for visits to the vet as well!
I have tried many other, different designs of cat restraints for trimming their claws. This grooming bag is a clear winner. It has made the job safe, and almost free of trauma for the cats. :-) Of course the cats still complain a little, but we can now get through the trimmings with no injury to my hands and arms.
Getting the cats into the bag is fairly easy, with practice. I have found that you first need to secure the neck strap after you place the cat into the open bag. After the neck strap is secured (but not TOO tight, please!) the back zipper can be closed. The cat is then incapable of either flight or scratching you.
Now, you can open the four leg openings one at a time, and gently pull the cat's leg through the opening. Of course the cat might complain and squirm a bit, but will still be unable to get away.
Our cats now have regularly-trimmed claws, and we are happy with the process.
My dog is a medium sized corgi and I was able to fit her into the medium size bag but I would buy a Large if they had it because the velcro collar part for the animals head is pretty small, obviously for a cat. But anyways, my dog has always had a problem with getting her nails cut. Such a small dog but super strong!! Took 3 people to hold her down and help cut her nails at the vet’s. They even considered sedating her but managed to do the job without. I didn’t like the inconvenience of having to pay to get her nails cut every time at the vets and I also felt bad for the vet tech’s because she was so problematic and very resitant. I was looking for alternative solutions until I came across this product. GOT THE JOB DONE! She struggled and fought but the bag really helps to restrain her from kicking and being aggressive towards me as I filed down her nails quickly. The bag did rip a little from her kicking but that is how bad her nails were! The fabric is pretty good though And still usable. Very relieved I came across this product.
This grooming bag works very well as a cat carrier. It did take two people to get my cats into this bag (not both at the same time). But the zipper, that runs the length of the top to the collar, helps by opening up the bag. You don't have to try to pull a bag over the cat's head. You just have to put the cat into the open bag and hold on while someone else Velcros the bag closed and pulls up the zipper and closes the Velcro collar. The collar has to be very firmly closed, if the cat can get a paw out through the collar she can pull open the velcro and escape. The cats did not actually enjoy this carrier. But they didn't struggle much. I think having their heads free does make them feel a bit better. I think my cats are normal sized, not huge, not tiny, the Medium size bag is a good fit for both of them.
This is hard for me to review. I am so sure for MOST cats this would be a great tool. Unfortunately for me my (formerly) feral cat has figured out how to break out of the bag and throw a cat temper tantrum.
I've been using the bag to administer sub q fluids to my extreme feral fight or flight cat. It works when she finally calms down, but the fact that she's able to break out of it isn't so good.
For MOST CATS this is epic, it's well made and super durable.
So great product, just not great for me. Maybe it's good for you?
I need to give my cat B12 shots in his scruff, but he's squirmy and I'm on my own, so I tried this bag. I got the medium size, but it was quite small. My cat is less than 6lbs, and he just barely fit. It might be good to be snug on your cat so he can't thrash around inside, but it's also hard to get him into it in the first place. I did manage to get him in, though. The problem is that this bag has an overlapping flap with velcro, which makes it easier to zip up but harder to access his scruff. I had to undo the collar to get access, but that opened the bag enough for him to escape. I'll have to return it. Seems good for nail trims or oral meds, though.
