These tiny claw clippers are just what I needed. My small dog is from a refuge and when he was found, abandoned on the street, his feet were in very poor condition. Four years later he still does not like them being touched - except by me! So, as having his claws clipped by the vet is too stressful for him I asked the vet to teach me to do it. I prefer these scissor-action clippers to the nail-clipper type that the vet uses. Now I can clip Dylan's claws at home - and he is not stressed at all.
