    Best Kind of Nail Trimmers

    By Kirstie on Jun 26, 2020

    My Veterinarian's office uses this type to clip my dogs' nails. It seems so much less traumatic for them and he is able to clip them so quickly. It doesn't twist or put much pressure on the nail, preventing cracking also. There is no safety guard on them, so you must be careful.

    Poor quality

    By on

    These are horrible nail clippers. They're cheaply made and they barely cut my dog's nails. Afterwards her nails started splitting. This is a complete junk. Do NOT buy.

    Not strong enough

    By on

    These clippers could not cut through my dog’s nails and made the attempt pretty stressful.

    Bad clippers

    By on

    These clippers would only cut through half the nail. They were not sharp. If you have a big dog I do not recommend them.

    Gap Between Blade And Hole

    By on

    Not only is the blade on this product not very sharp, but there's a slight gap between the blade and the hole which the nail goes through. This can lead to many problems, the most frequent of which was my dog's nails splintering when I tried to use this on them. I've since bought a different kind that works much better and her nails don't splinter all at with it. This product isn't worth anything.

    Dull and useless

    By on

    We used this for the first time today to trim the nails of our three cats. Blade was flimsy, not sharp, and broke their nails more than it trimmed them. They don't love having their nails trimmed, really, ever, and this made an already distressing task even worse on them. We can NOT use this again. Very disappointed!

    Not sharp, more importantly NOT for cats!

    By on

    The description says the small size is suitable for small dogs or cats and other small animals. The space between the guillotine and edge of the Clipper is far too great for a comfortable fit in clipping the kitties. They're also not sharp. The first snip was ok, but not great- every clip I attempted after was just shattering the kitty claws. Grrr. I hate wasting my hard earned money on products I will literally never use again.

    Flimsy blade

    By on

    Tool has nice feel in hand with a great grip and good spring action. However, I am disappointed that the blade has no support on one side. I was expecting the blade to go between the loop. In other words, there would be a band of support metal on either side of the blade that does the cutting. We have a large breed dog & it is difficult to get his nails cut with this tool. The blade wants to bend & does not cleanly cut the nail. I would not recommend this for an animal with thick nails.

    Very Flimsy

    By on

    These do not work well at all. The blade bends/moves away from the solid piece where you place the nail through as pressure is applied to trim. Leaves for a terrible cut. Stay away from these.

    Awful product

    By on

    These were not sharp at all and didn’t even cut my dogs nails, all it did was smash them and it was not comfortable for my dogs. I am very disappointed with this product coming from chewy.com . No need my money back for this junk. If I could I would give this a 0 star Review!
