Attractive design & easy-to-use features make this an ideal grooming tool for the at-home user. The sturdy metal construction and spring-loaded, rubber grip handle make trimming your pet's nails comfortable and safe for you and your pet.
As a guillotine-style nail trimmer, the Resco Pet Nail Trimmer has a stationary ring through which the nail is placed, and a cutting blade that moves up to slice off the nail when the handles of the trimmer are squeezed.
Always be careful not to cut too close to the 'quick', which contains nerves and blood vessels. It is painful and will bleed easily. On light-colored claws, the quick is the pink section and is easier to see. You cannot see the quick on dark-colored claws, making them difficult to trim without cutting into the quick. Cut dark colored claws in several small cuts to reduce the chance of cutting into the quick.
If your pet's nails make a clicking sound when they walk, they are probably too long. Hold your pet's foot and press the toe gently so that the nail extends fully. If the nail curves beyond the bottom of the toe pad, it's too long.
