Default Re: Nail trimming (video)

Loki is a guy

He didn't like the scruffing in the beginning but I thought it would be a good thing to practice not only for nail clipping but also if the vet has to check something. Once you've tried it it's pretty easy.

Because he can't fully ball up like this it doesn't hurt to hold him but it's the easiest to pick them up if they are relaxed already so with a huffy hedgehog it would be more complicated. They are still able to move their legs though but a lot less than if you just keep them on their back :P
