Ok so I have never cut an animal's nails before today and I drove myself up a wall with this!!! Tuesday morning is one of my cage cleaning mornings so I decided while the guinea pigs were running around the bathtub playing I could get this done. I mean really. My piggies are used to me, they don't bite, and I've watched a trillion youtube videos on this so it should've been easy, right?! I cut my neurotic girl Jessie's nails first. She actually liked it. (What girl doesn't like a mani/pedi?) Then I get Woody. My Woods. My first furry baby. My lap piggie... He goes nuts and squeeled the whole time like I was chopping his foot off!!! So of course, I nicked his blood line on the last toe and it bled a little bit. Just a couple drops and it was done. I made sure I cleaned off all his paws really good and couldn't even tell which nail was the one I got too short. Loved me and cuddled me just the same as before I "chopped his feet off". He's absolutely fine and I'm a mess. Is he going to get an infection from where I cut
I think I will just eat the $3 bucks I paid for the nail clippers and take them all once a month to get their nails clipped. My poor old heart just can't take that again!
