Got one to use on Paulie's nails and tried it today. It worked pretty well. Just curious if anyone else has used one.

Oh I have been wondering if this worked well. I file Ozzy's nails with heavy duty emery boards myself and he is really good about it, however it has to be done several times a week. With the pedi paws I think that I would reduce the number of times per week that I would need to file his nails. I am curious how loud it is?

here is a link to the main site Pedi Paws

I use a battery powered Dremel grinder for the birds nails. The Pedi-paws seem to be the same except they have the guard on it.

I haven't used it no but I too use a dremel with a grinder on it and it works well and quick. doesn't seem to stress them out too badly either.Some of the smaller birds are hard to do but you get the hang of it over time.lol.

I use the dremel tool also. It works great and Lily likes to get her nails done just like Mommy. LOL Sharon

Yeah, it's like a little dremel, maybe not as loud. Paulie doesn't like it. I hold him in a towel while my husband files the nails. It's quick, and I don't have to take him out in the cold.

Deborah, if you can do your bird's nails without stressing him out, that's probably the best thing. The Pedipaws makes some noise, but probably less than a dremel.

Ozzy is wonderful about it, I get out the files and start on my own nails with him sitting in my lap. He puts his little foot out for me to do his. He does however get bored with it before I can do each nail (this is why I have to do them several times a week). Even the heavy duty emery boards can only do so much, the pedi paws looked as if it would be much more efficient, and reduce the time required in keeping his nails trimmed. So it was just a thought wink

I wish Paulie would let me do that. I usually bring him to the vet for the nails, and I was a little worried he'd be mad at me for toweling him and doing his nails, but he forgave me right away. He's a really good boy. It was really quick though.

We have one too but with Kyra only being here for two weeks we don't want to push it just yet. We did trim just the tip of her nails because they were so sharp and got her a stone perch. I am curious to see how winter does please keep posting. :0) This way I know what to expect maybe from Kyra.

We got the Pedi Paws as an early Christmas present. I was very doubtful it would go over well, but it was great! We still held Peepers in a towel, but she was much calmer with me using the Pedi Paws than when we use regular clippers.

Coco doesn't mind the Pedi Paws at all....the first time was only for a second, and a treat right afterwards...now I just prop her on the back of that kitchen chair, and trim away. She'll sit still and wait for her treat at the end...no towelling needed at all!!!!!

It took me 8 months, but now Paco loves it. I had to use operant conditioning to get him to stop running away from it. He was terrified of it from the first time he saw it.

Now he will will put his foot up and move it around so that I can get each nail. He actually enjoys it.

I don't use the guard because I can't get the right angles to do a good job.

I thought pedipaws was too big and course for the birds so we still use the dremel on them and the pedi on the four legged kids...
