This is a review for the cat nail trimmer version of these trimmers. These pet nail trimers are not good quality for cat nails. The blades are too thick and not sharp. They actually crack the nail rather than trimming quickly and smoothly through the nail. I trim pet nails professionally, and have been looking for a good replacement for my well-loved trimmers for small animals. These are definitely not it! Do not waste your money or risk your pet's nail health by using these trimmers.
Bought this about a month ago. Not a bad little grinder, however, the charging light never did work and still doesn't...which makes it hard to know when it's fully charged. Hopefully it does charge....still testing it out.
I am totally new to clipping my cats claws. Up until recently I had never had a full grown cat with claws. My first cat I had declawed as I was totally ignorant about the dangers of that at the time. Thankfully that cat is still doing well from that procedure 11 years later but now that I’m more educated on the matter I knew I didn’t want to do that again. Anyways, I have a new adult cat that I rescued who was scratching everything in site. I ordered these and immediately sat her down to start work. I was terrified I was accidentally going to hurt her but it was so easy for both me and her!! I had to do one paw at a time bc she started to squirm from being held still too long but they worked great and I’m so happy with them!
Used on my Cat. This review is written by someone who bought this product and was not paid for this.
Opinion: I've used these clippers twice since receiving them and they have done a great job at trimming cat nails. They do not spinter the nail and make a precise cut.
Packaging: Pet Republique does a good job a providing good pictures to represent what you will get when ordering their product.
Build Quality: The steel clippers are sharp and cut very clean. The grip area is a solid black plastic surrounded by a soft rubberized grip for a firm grip when cutting. This is a great feature to avoid any possibility of slippage.
This is a great product for cats & small dog nails and I am confident it will work for your pet needs.
I'm a first time cat owner to a Ragdoll kitten that just turned 4-months old yesterday and I never realized just how sharp kitty claws could be 'til now. We've had Sora for a full week now and you wouldn't believe the amount of SCARS I've had in those 7 days. My arms, legs, and even my shoulders (he has the habit of kneading a lot in the mornings, claws out; he's been waking me up this way everyday) are full of scratches which I've gotten from him being too cuddly and not knowing when to retract his claws.
Anyway, I finally decided to buy clippers online and found these and I regret not getting these SOONER. We gave Sora his first nail clipping experience today and it went more smoothly than I thought it would have and these clippers definitely helped. He was a little fidgety but not so much that we had to stop. We managed to do all his nails (front and back) in one sitting and they're so much better now. I haven't been scratched once. I also like the size of this clipper. Not too small but small enough. I would think the size of this clipper would be great even for a fully grown cat. Also I love the sharpness. It made the entire process way easier and so much quicker. I highly recommend this product!
The ergonomic feel of the nail clippers makes clipping a wiggly dog's nails easier (I am a professional dog groomer). The bent angle, allows me to lift the dog's foot backwards and clip the nail horizontal to the pad perfectly, decreasing the chances of my cutting the quick. The design of it works great because the closing/locking tab is inside the handles, not outside. Other clippers, with the locking tab on the outside by the thumb, will accidentally lock when you clip, every time, making nail clipping twice as hard and very frustrating. Clip, reset the shield, unlock it over and over. Actually, the black plastic locking tab fell off very easily, but in my case, it made the clippers better. The safety shield stays in place too. The shield on other clippers won't stay over the opening so that I have to adjust it back over the opening between each nail clip. When the shield stays, I can clip, clip, clip quickly, getting through the groom faster, without getting the quick of the nail.
