To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I wasn't impressed with these cat nail trimmers, they're not very sharp and caused splintering. The blades are bulky and I couldn't easily fit them between my cats nail and toe pads (5cm&10cm) I also had to open them very wide to fit the nail inside of the blades.
I have two large mastiff-mix dogs. Neither are big fans of having their paws held for long periods of time. This unit is good because it is quiet and nimble enough that I can hold it on the claw without holding the paw too firmly. Unfortunately, the "diamond" grit rotating head barely removes more than a couple of microns of claw and putting any firmer pressure on it and the motor grinds to a halt. Wimpy wimpy wimpy. It is NOT working on my big dogs' hard claws.
Just got this out of mailbox and I was disappointed that it does not have a guard or a safety lock on it...as the description says it does. That was one if the main features I was looking for because of the fear of cutting the nail into the quick. Needless to say I am a little upset at being mislead. I haven't used it yet so I cannot attest to the quality. However, this has left a sour taste in my mouth for this seller.
I may have gotten one with a bad battery. It charges quickly but the motor seems to bog down with little pressure applied to the claw. I've charged it after use then tried to use it a couple weeks later only to find that the battery was dead. Another charge brought it back but it doesn't seem to keep a charge while stored between uses. Since I only need to use it every couple of weeks the return window had closed by the time I learned this. I've only been able to do some touch up with it after using the supplied cutters because it lacks power to do much grinding. I think this may be related to the battery as well.
Not a great clipper. Cannot cut kittens’ Nails without splitting/cracking their nails. If clipper cannot perform for kittens’ nails how is it supposed to perform for adult cats’ nails? Ergonomic is terrible. Ended up buying another clipper to test and the other clipper is night and day better than this one. It cuts cleanly- so it is possible to have a sharp, clean cutting pet clipper. Returned this one.
I had purchased the large clippers for my thirty pound Shetland Sheepdog and I wasn't as happy as I thought I'd be. These are too lightweight in my opinion, and since dog nails are quite sturdy, this tool made mostly of plastic, was a challenge at making the first clip. I seem to believe the blades might not be as sharp as they should be, aiding in the struggle with getting through the nail. The file that had come as a bonus, however, I could use with success.
All right. I bought all three of these nail clippers. I got them yesterday, and I took them to work today (dog groomer). The first thing I noticed upon holding them was that they felt cheap. The handles are thin (which, btw, results in the edges digging uncomfortably into your hand when you close them) and light, and I just didn't have a good feeling. Once I started clipping, that feeling just got worse. The blades were decently sharp, but the clippers just weren't sturdy at all. I was thinking I wouldn't be surprised if they just broke, when the little black latch that holds them together just popped right off. The product description says "Parts will not loose or fall apart, making this a top quality professional dog nail clippers." This is not true.
I don't feel like these are trustworthy clippers, and I'm going to have to buy at least a pair of large clippers elsewhere (I usually use Safari brand and may just return to those). The small/medium ones are borderline useless except maybe toy-sized dogs, cats, and small pets. For anything bigger than a Yorkie or Maltese, I'd probably use the large clippers (even though I should be able to use sm/md clippers for most dogs up to 50ish lbs), BUT I don't feel I can use even the "Large" clippers on a large dog, or one with thick nails. I'm pretty sure they'd break (not just popping the latch, either).
It's a shame. I like that the company donates part of its profits to animal rescue, and I actually really like the angle they're set at. And maybe they're ok if you're using them for your pet dog and ordered a "size up." But as a profesional of 13+ years, I do not consider these to be professional products at all. This review is for the dog nail clippers; I haven't used the cat clippers but don't foresee an issue with them.
I bought these clippers for my 14yo long haired calico cat...let me just say this: if you have any type of dexterity issues (ie arthritis, carpal tunnel, etc), this product is not for you!...I realize it said mini (I have small hands) but they are the size of children’s fiskar scissors...my fingers kept getting stuck and they really weren’t that much sharper than the device I had...next!
From all the positive reviews I was expecting something a little better. The clippers feel fine in the hand, but when it comes to clipping claws, it always seems to mangle or crush the claw instead of snipping it off neatly, almost as if the blades are too dull. I've since switched back to my old clippers that don't have this problem.
I fully charged it and while I like the grinder head, the actual dremel itself is weak. I have a pitbull puppy who is getting big quickly, in not sure this is powerful enough to handle his adult nails if they are hardly able to handle his puppy nails. It is quite and very easy to hold. I LOVE that its cordless. But I can only justify giving 2 stars as it will not perform the way I need it to. Will be returning sadly.
