    Don’t deny the brand due to bad reviews!

    By VetGirl on Mar 25, 2021

    I work in the veterinary field, and have for 10 years. EVERY clinic I have worked in has used this brand of clippers, and the clinic I currently work at has two of these specifically. They are used for a multitude of things; shaving areas with wounds, pre-op prep, catheter prep, grooming- they do it I work in the veterinary field, and have for 10 years. EVERY clinic I have worked in has used this brand of clippers, and the clinic I currently work at has two of these specifically. They are used for a multitude of things; shaving areas with wounds, pre-op prep, catheter prep, grooming- they do it all, but furthermore, DO IT WELL. I’ve been at my current clinic for 2 years and these clippers were there before my time, but in my two years, we have never had to replace them. We have replaced blades, but strictly from them being dropped and damaged. I’m really shocked by the negative reviews as they really are wonderful, durable clippers. I don’t think it’s coincidence that the 5 clinics I’ve worked at have all used them either. My bottom line point I suppose, is not to be discouraged from purchasing this brand due to reviews on Chewy. I have never in all my professional experience heard anything negative about Oster clippers. Everybody has highly recommended them, and the only reason I stumbled upon these reviews is because I finally decided to purchase one for personal use. I have a miniature poodle/Pomeranian mix with a distrustful temperament and habit of biting anybody but me; she was horrifically neglected and luckily surrendered to our clinic just in time to save her. I don’t feel comfortable bringing her to a groomer as I don’t want anybody to get hurt, so I’ve had to learn the art of grooming at home. The cheap off brand pair I bought initially do the trick, but I need something better. Working with these everyday for 2 years, I know they get the job done WELL. … more

    Clippers Overheat!

    By jbj333 on Jan 30, 2021

    I bought these to touch up a horse that had already been clipped. I couldn't use for more than 2 minutes because they got too hot to handle. I used Kool Lube for the blades but just couldn't handle the hot clipper casing. Oster used to make great clippers. Will go back to the Andis.
