I finally got my nerve up and cut Paris' nails last night. She was great but I think my clippers leave a lot to be desired.

Can anyone give me some recommendations on clippers? Any and all comments, info. and opinions will be greatly appreciated.

I don't know which ones you have, but I have the cat clippers for Scooby and they work well for me. Once I have finished clipping I use an emery board to smoothe his nails otherwise he will sit there and chew on them.

Yep they are the ones I have, and they are good because they are small and easy to use.

Thanks! I'll have to run and get them. The best part is that they are $5 and y'all like them! I was hoping I wouldn't get some opinions on clippers that were really expensive.

Don't get the guilitene (sp?) ones. I paid about $15 and I hate them. Now I have one that is more like scissors (about $12) and I am much happier with them. Wish I had checked out the cat dept.

I use Greenies Smart Trim dog nail clipper/file grinder. Here is the description of it:
"An adjustable nail clipper with electric file that uses stainless steel blades and features an exclusive Quick Guard nail stop that pre-sets the cutting length for a precise, worry-free trim every time. No more costly trips to the groomer for nail trimming. Perfect for every household to keep hardwood floors, carpet and furniture from being destroyed. Easy to use, easy to clean. Collection tray to catch nail clippings."



I like this better than the regular ones I used to buy. At the end of the nail clipper, you have this rotating nail file that is pretty useful. Just like our nails, if you use a nail cutter, you need to file your nails down so it wouldn't have those sharp edges. When I clip their nails, it's usually really sharp afterwards... so this helps a lot! =] I hope this was helpful!
