Those are the ones I use too. Also the local rescue uses that brand.

SuperG Wouldn't be a bad idea to buy a small container of styptic powder just in case you cut into the quick accidentally......in a pinch, a bar of soap will also work to stem the bleeding.

Susan Garrette is an amazing person! We implement her crate games here. I have followed her for years.

platz34 I think the dremmel is the best way to go. It allows you to take of a little at a time and you can keep checking the end of the nail to see how close your getting.
