Oh my goodness, these clippers saved my relationship with my dog! I had a pair of clippers that I bought at a chain retailer that I thought were just fine but tried switching out of desperation to make the weekly-ish chore less stressful for pup and I. These clippers are somehow 100% better, and there was no screaming and fighting from my dog for the first time ever. She is five pounds and they are just great, super sharp and accurate and not too powerful or big for a tiny dog. The value is excellent as well. Would definitely recommend!
First off please let me preface this review by telling you that we have a light colored Golden retriever. She has almost clear toenails so I can see exactly how much toenail I can cut before cutting into the quick. That said the first thing I did was check to see if the nail guide was a good thing or not. NO, don't use it ! Had I done so I would have hurt our dog. I did some test cuts on a heavy zip-tie and with the nail guide I would have cut over 1/8th inch of toenail. Next issue was the cutting edge. These cutters were ground with a very course grit wheel and the edge was not sharp enough to make a clean cut in the zip-tie let alone a dogs toenail. Last issue is the latch that holds the cutters closed when not in use. After reading the 1 star reviews of this item and the concerns of others having this latch closing while cutting there pets nails I did some testing. Yes, it will lock up the cutter part way through the cut due to the fact that it is attached with a small screw threaded into the soft plastic handle material. The fix to these issues are simple. Take the cutter apart, remove the nail guide and latch that holds them closed. Sharpen the cutting edge with a 1/2 inch round fine grit round hone stone and if you are concerned about keeping them closed while not in use a rubber band will work. Lastly; if you look close at most of this style cutters for sale you will notice that they are all the same other than maybe the brand, handle color, seller, and price. They do work well now that these issues have been addressed and with care should last many years. I hope this review helps other pet owners and I encourage everyone to please review items they buy honestly and fairly to avoid hurting our pets, ourselves, and our pocket books.
These are so easy to use. I never cut pet nails before, so I watched a tutorial first. These clippers come with a “stopper”. I didn’t have to worry about cutting my cats’ nails too short. I do recommend watching a tutorial first as there is a technique to it- but overall this clippers are great!
The clippers aren’t the sharpest but they did get the job done with lots of force. The most annoying part is that the lock on mine moves very freely so it has the possibility to lock while you are clipping nails, potentially being dangerous for your pet. I would not recommend!!
My cat developed an ingrown nail last year that had curled. I didn't think my current cat nail clippers would do the job because the nail was so thick. I decided to take her to the vet and have it clipped. My vet told me to get a good clipper so I could keep a watch on that nail. I decided to give these clippers a try after reading the good reviews on Amazon. The ingrown nail returned and again the nail was very thick. These clippers cut the nail perfectly. She didn't even flinch when the nail was cut. I had styptic powder on hand that I also purchased from Amazon in case there was bleeding, however, it was not needed. My cat and I are extremely happy with these clippers. The price is excellent and much cheaper than a vet charge.
I used these on our cat yesterday. They work very well, easy to grip in one hand. I especially like the guard so you don't snip off too much of the claw. These clippers are very well built and I'm sure I'll get a lot of use out of them (when the cat's asleep:)
My vet told me to get a pair of cat nail clippers for my cats because regular clippers crush their nails if used. My cats still fight me getting the nails clipped, but a properly designed tool sure helps.
Item exactly as decribed. I have small hands and they fit mine great; got the job done. Has a "guard", so to speak, on one side so as not to cut too deep in the quick. Loved that feature. Sharp to do a clean cut. Would recommend
