*This Product is very simple to use. Just make sure you hold the dog's nail securely before inserting it into the opening. Instructions regarding this are included in the product packaging.
*It doesn't hurt the animals, and you're much less likely to make your pet bleed than if you used traditional pet clippers.
*The machine effectively grinds down the nail.
*It will take a lot more time using Pedi Paws than using traditional nail clippers.
*While most of the nail grinding are captured in the protective covering surrounding the grinder, not all of it is caught. Powder from the nail grindings flies through the air.
Upon the request of many petowners, I have decided to write a review of the Pedi Paws machine, which is used to grind away a pet's long nails. I have found that I have a love-hate relationship with this product. With that being said, I will try not to make my review too wishy-washy, so to speak.
First of all, I would like to say that yes, the product works. It does grind away my dogs' nails, making them shorter. In addition, after the dogs got accustomed to the noise, they didn't really mind me using the machine. They don't enjoy it as if I'm treating them to a day at the spa, but they sit there patiently and allow me to grind away ath their nails.
Unfortunately, I know that simply cutting their nails would be much simpler and a lot less time consuming. If you've let your dogs' nails grow out fairly long, then it's going to take quite a while to grind them down to what would be considered short. Plus, a dog's cuticles adjust to its nail length. Therefore, I can't just grind the nails down as much as I want to in one sitting. In essence, you have to grind the nails down as close to the cuticle as possible, and then within the next few days, the cuticle will recede. Then you can grind them down even more.
This can be a long process, and it seems to be never-ending. I've tried to commit myself to using the Pedi Paws on my dogs at least once a day or once everty two days, but I'm so busy. Therefore, I have yet to set a nail grinding schedule. As a result, my dogs' nails are still pretty long, and because I have hardwood floors, I hear the click, click, of their prancing across the floors daily.
This product does work, but it takes a lot of time for it to work successfully. In all honesty, it would be much easier to have your veterinarian cut your pet's nails.
However, I think this product is perfect for a pet owner who is scared to cut his/her pet's nails. It is also a great product for those pets that are very scared of the nail clippers. If you have time to use Pedi Paws on your pets 2 or 3 times a week, then I'm fairly confident that you will see continued success from this product.
