Peticure nail trimmer?

Has anyone purchased the "Peticure" nail trimmer advertised on TV? I'm not one to buy any of the future garage sale fodder normally hawked on TV, but wondering if it might be worth the $30. Supposedly it trims without danger of hitting the quick.

Just curious....

Re: Peticure nail trimmer?

I got four dogs but I only have to trim one of them. I think trimming the nails effects their running and agility performance. Its hard enough to hold their paws long enough to clip. I can't see my self holding Miss Hyper long enough for a full pedicure.

No but I've thought about it. $30 isn't expensive enough to where I'd be mad at myself if it sucked.

^ that's what I was thinking too.

I'm always paranoid that I'm going to nick the quick (hey, that rhymes). I always have stiptic handy....

It looks like a dremel with a cover.

I'm curious to know how you like it if you get one.

THe question I have is would I need to change the filing surface - it looks like a mini belt sander.

Yep and you can get a dremel for about $20 instead of the $30 they want for the Peticure.

You can purchase the cover only which fits most dremels for about $18.00

I'm getting it! That looks awesome~!

Bella's nails grow fast and long....she's definately all girl. I won't even trim them myself right now, as I'm too scared of hurting her, but when I take her to get it done at the groomer's, they always do a poor job.
