Okay, I'll look for the orange ones.
The orange ones! I think the company is "Millers forge"? $20ish, and they tend to last forever.
You're right, it IS a big deal to do one nail and using sharp clippers IS an important part of the process!
Great job on getting this far!!!
I really never thought we would
get this far! We've gotten to where we can handle his feet and were just happy with that. We've been letting the vet tech do his nails. But the other night, he must have been biting one of them and had it real skinny and sharp. I was afraid he'd catch it on something and hurt himself, and since the rest of his nails were fine, I told mom he was not going to the vet for ONE nail! (I mean, how lame!)
I figured the cheapie clippers we have were good enough to do that one, but I wouldn't try to clip a full, intact nail with these things.
I'm just stunned that he let us do it without turning into Psycho Dog.
ETA - I really need to give our vet techs more credit than I can take, myself. They're the ones who have done his nails several times now, without scaring or hurting him, and have shown him that it's nothing to be afraid of.
