Used these clippers once. These are incredibly dull and could not get through my Shepherd's nails. They got stuck in the closed position trying to unsuccessfully cut the nail. As my dog pulled his paw away, it ripped a large chunk of nail off.
My sister who was in 4H used these on her critters and they were perfect for our wiggly guinea pig who had never had her nails clipped.
Have been grooming dogs for years and I love these clippers!
I used these 1 time and now it won't work. Period!!! And made in the USA!!
