Caroline, if you would like details about the one I use, just let me know and I will send you a spark mail with all the details.

These are my very first Shar-Peis where I have been able to trim their nails as Shar-Peis in general hate their feet being touched.

All my other pals who have passed would not allow me to go near their nails but then a pet grinder was not available at that time either.

I would never be without my pet grinder. I can seriously tell you I love mine. I love the look of their nice short nails also.

Meg

I have alot of concrete in my back yard, which seems to wear down Hunter's nails, so I've never had to trim them. I also bought one of those emeryboard/scratch pads you see advertised on tv for my cats....they used one for a litter box, the other one to stand on to reach the chair & scratch!!! But, I love them & when I have nice furnature to worry about, then I will figure out what to do!

I used to hate it EJ but since I purchased a grinder I really enjoy doing it and they don't mind at all.


I do it every two weeks to keep them nice and short.

What a difference no more pain from nicking them by accident! I love my grinder!

Grinding Dog Nails is Safer than Cutting Them

We all love our pets so much. But, nobody likes to have them scratch up our furniture and floors. Nor do we like to have them tear holes in upholstery or pillows.

And itís very annoying dog or cat nails snag our clothing or hosiery, not to mention painful when they accidentally scratch us. But, all that aside, nail care is also absolutely essential for the comfort and health of our pets!

If you have ever done it yourself, you know that trimming their nails is scary, unpleasant, and can often be painful for your pet if you cut into the quick of the nail.

If youíve every cut your own finger or toenails too short, you have had a small glimpse into what this pain is like Ė but cutting into the quick of your petís nails is more painful.

And other than to yelp in pain or run under the bed, your dog or cat canít give you very good feedback on how you are doing as the work is in progress.

You canít blame them for running away when you approach them with clippers. You can almost hear them thinking, ďOh no, not the dreaded nail clippers again!Ē as they run for that one place in the room where you canít easily reach them.

But rather than cutting your petís nails, there is another way. You can begin grinding dog nails or cat nails. A pet nail grinder used to gently sand down a cat or dogís nails instead of using a traditional clippers.

Thatís right, pet nail grinders doesn't have clippers. It has a filing wheel that doesn't cut the nail, just files it down. Thatís why is a revolutionary solution to pet nail grooming that eliminates the hassles.

Not only is a pet grinder better than a clipper, but it is much better solution than a regular rotary tool like the Dremel. A pet grinder is better because it is specifically designed for this grooming task and does not use a really high speed motor. Then the tool applies its precision filing wheel to gently remove thin layers of nail and leave the paws of your pet touchable soft and your home safe from scratches.

It can be used on dogs, cats and pets of all ages and sizes. It is painless. In seconds your pet's claws sharp and jagged edges are gone. It is the fastest and easiest way to keep your pet nails trim, rounded and smooth.
