Have you ever given your pet a Peticure???

I was just watching the commercial for Pedi Paws/Peticure for the thousandth time & wondering does it really work??? With 2 dogs & 2 kittens I always have nails to clip. I like the idea of the Pedi Paw but $29.95 is a lot to pay for something that doesn't work. I feel like somebody in myLotland has already bought one & has an opinion on its worth. Have you bought one of these??? And did it work???

I have no idea what a Pedi Paw is LadyM, but that sounds a lot to me. How does that compare to taking your pu$$y or pooch to an animal beautician? For about the same money they might throw in a shampoo and the works.

With 4 puss n pups, it is MUCH cheaper than the pros. But it much more than I feel the urge to just throw away (if it don't work) http://pedipaws.com Well dayum, I go to get the web addy so you can see that it is & they've lowered the price. Still I just don't want to throw my money in the trash (along with the Pedi Paw if it's useless) I used the myLot link. maybe that's a SPECIAL price for us lotters!!!

Cute advert. It look like a rotary nail file. Not too expensive, but I wonder how long the file lasts. They sell them here. But they are all lumped in with manicure sets for humans! LOL. I am sorry that I cannot help more.

I've seen that commercial too, LadyM, and the thing looks like it's just wonderful! Easy to use, absolutely uncapable of hurting your pet, looks great. And if I had a dog, I think I would probably check it out, but since I have 3 cats, and they use the sharpness of their claws to climb and jump on the things we have built for them to use, I don't think I'd feel comfortable dulling their claws. I'd LOVE to dull them, don't get me wrong, especially the manx's, because, as my baby, he spends a lot of time on me, and my chest is perpetually punctured. Ouch. But I still put up with it. That's love, believe me. But why not? It would be more than worth the money if it works for you. I would do it. And then, you can let the rest of us know what it's like!

I have 2 dogs & 2 kittens. I understand what you're saying. I had a cat with NO claws on her front feet, but boy did the back ones work. My leg looked like a pin cushion every time I sneezed. I kept her back claws clipped & she had NO trouble doing anything she wanted to do. She slipped out one day & a dog got after her. She went straight up a tree. Trimming their nails won't stop them from climbing, but it keeps them from leaving the pin holes in my legs. Then I still have the 2 dogs to deal with.

Hi LadyMarissa, Well I never thought of peticure for my cats because I always thought that dogs gets their doe and not cats, mine you if I try to do for my cats, they will run hell for leather. Tamara

Most cats won't care for it, but since my babies are only 4 months old, I'm assuming that I can still train them to let me do it & then they'll get used to it.

I have never tired it! But your right $30.00 is pricey if it does not work! I hate wasting money! I still need a spa day. I want to be pampered!

I should be able to tell you about it soon - we ordered it, but it had a faulty battery. We should be getting the replacement any day now - it looks like a great replacement to the old-fashioned way of doing it.

Peticure - Peticure is just another version of the PediPaws but it costs about $10.00 MORE
As you're the FIRST to say you have bought one, PLEASE let me know how you like it once you get your replacement. Also, did you buy the PediPaws or the PetiCure???

It's funny that you have just mentioned "Pedi Paws" because I have been receiving a lot of email spam lately in regards to this product. I used to trim the claws on my dog back home but it was not an easy job I can tell you! I am actually amazed that I still have two hands! lol. I am not sure if what I used to clip his nails is similar to the PediPaw but it was just a standard dog and cat toenail clipper with a hole in a metal section that you stuck the nail into and then squeezed the handles to cut the nail. I didn't enjoy this task at all and neither did my dog unfortunately.

My cats don't care for that either. I'm thinking of buying a dremel as I just want to unsharpen the end of the nail not necessarily file them all the way down. Rounded nails won't leave pin holes in my legs. I just worry the noise will scare my cats. I don't have a lot of trouble with my 2 dogs. They live outside & run up & down my paved driveway enough to keep their nails worked down reasonably.

Saw your discussion came to check it out and see if you got a good answer. But I see no one here has used it.. I too have been very curious about this I have 4 dogs and about a dozen cats and this would be awesome (if it worked) don't suppose you have purchased this since your discussion, huh? :)

Sorry NO. However, my brother did a lot of research on this for me. He discovered from people who used it, that the drill part was not very sturdy. The covered head apparently will fit on certain drills. I saw another discussion here from professionals who seemed to think a dremel will work almost as well except it doesn't have the covered head & you need be more careful. The Peticure costs $29.95 & the PediPaw costs $19.95. Of course the S&H is not cheap. You might want to check on the dremel. The quality was said to be better & the price is not that different. Good luck!!!

I have seen the commercial too but sorry, I don't know if it works. This crappy apartment building I live does not allow pets, I wish I had a dog. When ever I move I will have a couple of dogs.

I never bought something like that I do not like to cut my pets nails as they look that they are suffering but one of my cats I do so! I like that drill with file for dogs so you do not hurt them until bleeding but I never heard about this in USA, funny though!

I have not used the pedi paw. With my pets I use what is the fastest for me as they always get restless and try to pull the leg away. Mostly now I just have the vet do it when the dog goes in, but in between visits it does take two of us to do on my current dog. Not sure if it tickles him or if he just don't like his feet messed with. My daughter has two dogs and both of her dogs don't mind getting their nails clipped but she does use the cheaper dog nail clippers also like I do.
