Has anyone tried this product?  I've seen the commercial several times.  The website says it can be used also on small animals.  Just wondering about others' experience.  A few of my cats turn into kangaroos when it's mani/pedi time.   Smiley

We tried it with our 2 male Bengals.  One of them didn't seem to mind while the other one squirmed every time.  We found the unit itself too large for cats (JMO), plus it does make some noise.  If they made a smaller, quieter unit for cats I think it would work better.  Our one Bengal that squirmed has continued to do so even though we've gone back to trimming their claws with ordinary nail clippers - he didn't do this before we tried the Peticure, so I think the noise from it "spooked" him.
That's not to say that some cats may very well tolerate it.  We "donated" ours to our neighbour who has dogs.

It is like they grow an extra pair of limbs when you are trying to trim their nails, isn't it?  Where did all these legs come from?

Interesting tool - I was thinking of trying a very rough emery board the other day on my small dogs overly long claws.  They are black so I can't see the quick in.  But this tool would grind down the quick too if done too long.  And I'm sure many dogs would be harder to trim with this than a clipper because of the noise and freaking grinding sensation.

I can't even imagine using it on a cat!! 

I saw this thing at the store the other day.  It's supposed to work on all but the densest nails, so probably wouldn't work on solid black nails (the main reason you would need it):

yeah, that is what I was thinking too.  I doubt I could use something like that on Daisy.  She is afraid of noises like hair dryers and vaccums.  Doubt she would go for this product.  Just like everything else, you would have to get your pet accustomed to a Peticure during puppyhood or kittenhood.
