I have seen the ads for this and wondered if any of you have bought one of these and how it worked for you. I want to see if I can get some responses before I decide whether to purchase one or not. Thanks for your responses.

Yikes that would be scary! I wonder how it keeps from hurting the pets nail? Are your dogs large or small??

I haven't bought one yet, but my brother has. He's a very picky person & he says he likes it. His dog isn't thrilled with it though. So, he positions the nail & then turns it on. It has worked its magic by the time the dog realizes what has happened. He suggested I get one for my cats. I haven't bought one yet. I'm hoping the price will go down a little more. I've noticed the made-for-TV items get cheaper after the first year. It's been almost a year since the PediPaw came out., so the price should drop some soon (fingers crossed).

Thanks for your response,that might be the best way to do it. I have found alot of those items that are on tv are sold at Walgreens, so you might watch out there if you have one nearby.

I bought one last weekend actually. To be honest with you I was disappointed with the product. I didn't like the fact that it tells you to go to its website to watch the video on how to use the product. Two of my dogs totally hated the machine and normally my husband doesn't have any problems trimming the dogs nails.

well i purchased one then am scared to use it. it came with all these instructions on being very careful not to apply it to long to there nails to take care not to remove to much. and i have a little dog with little paws. so, now im scared i'll remove to much what a waste of money. theres a video online of it also. and it has to charge 24hrs before use. i could send it to u for postage

oh that would be nice, then I wouldnt have so much invested if he runs from it. As you see he is pretty big, so I think it would be better on a larger dog as long as he will tolerate the noise. How do I contact you personally , I am fairly new at this!

I have not used one, and have myself been curious about them. My friend's mother uses one on her 8 year old Westie. I think a dog would have to have the quiet tempered personality to get used to something like that. I would imagine that it would be much more gentle on the nail then using regular clippers. I wonder about the nail dust and debris, and how loud it is. I grew up breeding and raising Bull mastiffs, and my mother always clipped their nails, and I now clip my boyfriend's Jack Russel's nails. I could not imagine him sitting very still for a pedicure... Overall, i bet it lessens that amount of times you will ever hit the quick. Therefore it is probably more humane...

I'm glad to hear info about this. I considered buying one to use on my 6 cats since they hate their nails being cut. They even try to avoid having their feet held. I'm probably holding their feet too long, but I want to make sure I don't cut the nails too short. So, they pull away. I thought I might be able to get a faster and smoother finish with this product and solve my nail-cutting problems. My main concern is that cats are even more sensitive than dogs are to noises. Does anyone out their have any idea what it is like to use Pedipaws on a cat?

I haven't bought one but I have heard mixed reviews about it. I think its up to the dog actually. Some dogs don't sit still for anything like mine. I won't purchase one for that reason and also I would be afraid that I would hurt my dog. I let the groomer take care of my dog twice a month. At least I know its being done properly. Good luck.
