Smile Easy way to clip nails


some may have already figured this out but I thought I'd share a video of me clipping Stumpy's nails (the easy way.) I see a lot of people on youtube struggling to get them to hold still.

Love this idea! Might have to try that down the road when Rowdy's more bonded....although he did let me cut his nails on the back paws today. Didn't cooperate with his front ��

I want to try this too! Too cute! Dexter let's us clip his nails after a bath but it takes two of us. Thanks for the great idea!

Is there somewhere that you can get a nail clipper like that? A pet supply store? I was told to use a normal nail clipper, but I've got a little squirmier on my hands and I don't want to hit her quick!
Thank you!

Im new to the Hedgie world and have only had my Herbert for just over a week now.He has 1 weird or deformed toe on 3 out of 4 feet. Hopefully he is ok but Im sure it is probably do to a previous pet store trimming. They don't seem to bother him at all but still...

Hey Melissa, This is Mercedes Cool, that I found you on here. Those Nail Clippers are actually sold for humans and I use them all the time too. I like to use regular ones for the animals but thats just my style. You can get those clippers at Walmart in the Nail isle, Health Stores as well. You should be able to find them somewhere

That will never work for me =\ he hates it when we disturb him while he's eating.

I need to try this! I am scared of catching her quick and I have never cut my hedgehog's nails before. Her back nails are getting a bit long now so it needs to be done.

I do this too! And it works like a charm. Except my baby boy is a fast eater so I could maybe get only three nails cut before he decides to go back into his hide to sleep. I basically just wait till he wakes up for food again to do it OTL
