Emery board for dogs nails?

Post by Louise C on Thu Apr 21, 2011 1:13 pm

I was in my local bric a brac store the other day and seen a battery operated emery board type thing for dogs nails and wondered if any one has tried it or something like it. Lola's front paw nails are quite long as she only really goes on fields. I wouldn't trust myself to cut them and don't want to pay extortionate prices, although having said that I havn't actually prices it up yet. Would I go to the vets or maybe a grommer? Any ideas would be great, apart from walking on roads as we have tried this and I much prefer her to run free in the fields than walk along roads.
Thanks in advance Smile

I bought one of these for Dempsey, but I jyst couldn't get him used to it. He hates his claws clipping etc. He has to visit the vets soon to be microchipped & I'm going to ask them to do his claws while he's under!

I have seen something similar over here for sale..a battery operated thingo that rotates with an emery on it.
My last doggie hated his claws done, so when Jethro was a puppy I started playing with his nails and trimming them... he doesn't mind me doing them at all but as a puppy he was so ticklish about his feet!

Your getting him knocked out for a microchip?! Does he really hate the vets that much?

he's getting knocked out for microchipping surely thats a risk they are not willing to take for a thirty second minor thing, I bet he wont even feel it Taz didn't, of coruse the nail clipping he will have to get knocked out for.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong here but I think the longer you leave it till you get your dog chipped the more it hurts them.This might be why Dempsey is being put under.

I Think that pups don't find it as bad because their skin is soft and they have less muscle and also the needle does not need to go as far.

It's because he has to be muzzled just for his annual vaccinations, and the microchip needle is bigger. I don't want to distress him by having to not only muzzle him but restrain him forcibly. The anaesthetic won't be much & he'll only 'just' be under, so there's little risk. We know he isn't allergic to anaesthetic because he had an operation last year for bloat. The amount used will be a fraction of what would be used if we got him castrated, but you wouldn't (didn't) think twice about that.

Poor Dempsy, I didn't realise it was that bad Caryll, bless his heart, all the best for his chipping Big Grin Oh and emory boards, I haven't ever had Moos done, I do a lot of road walking with her which keeps them short, so no worries there Smile

I plan to teach puppy to have his nails dremeled - this site is great for a step-by-step instruction http://homepages.udayton.edu/~jmerenski1/doberdawn/dremel/dremel.html They could probably be used as inspiration for training other kinds of pawdicure treatments, too.

Yup waste of money.

In theory it's a great idea and I managed one nail Laughing before she was havng an eppy and I thought It would be rather nice to keep all my fingers Laughing so put it back in the box.

Anoher lsson learnt, pay the extra and have them done by someone that doesn't mind maye losing a limb Laughing

While my lot are asleep on the settee they are used to me massaging them from rubbing their ears to squeezing their paws to poking and rubbing muscles (they love it they all do that gruff breathing thing) so i do the clipping while their asleep and other things like cleaning their ears, brushing their teeth only had to do that with cassie because she had her pup canine stuck behind her adult canine so i was massaging her gums to losen it, it worked too. and cleaning Blondy Genitals which i am still having to do daily Sad

Yay found a groomer just by me and Lola's having her nails clipped today and only £5.00 so a bargain.

Poor Dempsey! Bless him I wouldnt like a strange man forcibly holding me down and prodding me with needles either. Mind you I wouldnt like a bull terrier running into my legs at 30Kg and 15mph either!
