cat toenail clippers
10/06/2019 by Patricia
These are a very good idea. Cats are notoriously touchy about their toes and feet. I'm always concerned I'll cut too far down, IF I can even get hold of a cat nail. I had been using human nail clippers which were only ok. With these clippers, you can't go too far onto the nail and reach the "quick" which would be ever so painful. Only one negative, I purchased the first pair (which says includes cats' toenails), but with one senior cat, some of her nails have thickened so I had to order the next size up - a small. So sizing can be individual and a bit of a guess. The small was hard to get, often out of stock, so it must be a favorite!
Very easy

These clippers have made it much easier to cut my cats' nails. It's faster and less stressful for all of us!
Not tough enough
09/29/2019 by Nancy
We recently adopted our dog. Her nails had been neglected. Don't know if that's the reason why they're so tough to clip or not but these, unfortunately, just weren't strong enough for her nails. I could not squeeze them to clip most of the nails. Love the concept. Sizing was perfect. Got the XXL as she is 54 pounds. The nail fit right in the hole and stopped just shy of the quick, but just didn't always clip.
Keeps you from cutting too deep

These nail clippers are great for pets. When you buy the size for your dog or cat, the hole to put your animal's claws in, is only so large and will not open any larger. For dark nailed animals, where you can't see the vein in the nail, this is great. It prevents cutting into the quick. Just make sure you get the proper size for you animal.
Makes the Job Easy - I Highly Recommend Them

This is the second Zen Clipper I've purchased, as the size runs a bit small and my cats claws vary greatly in size. I love it! The cats not so much, but that's because they don't like being told what to do. However, that said, the actual clipping is much easier with these clippers and I would highly recommend them.

Safety Pet Nail Clipper

Free Exchanges offered for size issues

With perfectly sized (and smartly designed) pet nail clippers, animal nail trims are easier, faster, and safer—and less stressful for you and your pet. The conical design—which comes in seven sizes to suit your pet (from small birds and lizards up to large dogs)— prevents over-cutting and protects the super-sensitive quick.

Zen Clipper

Zen Clippers have taken their conically designed nail clippers and sized it to suit an array of pets to make nail trims easier and quicker.

There are seven sizes to fit pets like birds, lizards, bunnies, cats, and dogs. And there’s a sizing guide to make sure you get the right fit.

The cutting—or in this case, shearing—is done by a stainless-steel blade inside the conical design. There’s no sharp blade exposed, and the design allows in the just-right amount of nail, so there’s no over-cutting. This also protects the super sensitive quick from getting accidentally snipped, too.
The clippers get the job done quickly, so there’s less hassle (and stress) for you and your pet. And they are guaranteed to last a lifetime of nail trims, too. more Their Story
