    Default Nail clippers - recommendations please

    Hi everyone, hope you're all safe and well

    Bugsy and Tallulah are in desperate need of a visit to the nurse for a nail clipping session, but as that's not going to happen anytime soon, we're going to bite the bullet and try ourselves

    I've seen these https://www.amazon.co.uk/Tarnel-Prof...xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==

    does anyone else use them or have any other recommendations? We're novices at this but the bunnies submit to handling quite well so we should be ok with something that cuts safely

    thanks x

    Both clippers look like good choices. Good luck, take your time and take breaks if you need to x

    Good thread, think I'm going to have to have a go at Treacles in a couple of weeks time, she's got such fluffy feet though. Better get plasters in for my fingers !

    So all went well, we have all our fingers and the bunnies have all their toes

    Slow and steady definitely worked. I held each bunny in turn in front of me on a towel between my knees and gently lifted their front paws up off the floor, my daughter sat in front and held one paw at a time and gently snipped each nail. The back paws were a bit more tricky but by holding the bun in a more upright position, it was easier to access the back paws. Tallulah has very fluffy feet but clear nails so the vein was easy to see and avoided.

    Treats followed for us all. The clippers we used were very efficient, with good sharp blade and a cover to ensure you don't cut too much at a time.

    Hope this helps anyone who's also thinking of giving it a go.

    Oh well done, I wondered how you were getting on. I inspected Treacles claws this morning, they are not too bad, but will definatly need doing in 2-3 weeks time. She's a good girl though, and never struggles at the vets, so paws crossed it will go ok
