I've lost count.,,,

Of How many times I've quicked Ranger. He's so bloody cooperative and easy to clip, yet I get him often enough some how. He never holds a grudge about it either. Both girls are a hassle, I think I've gotten Tuke once years ago and Zoey never though the look they give me when I pull the clippers out you'd think it was a common occurrence. On a side note, woo hoo for styptic powder.

I’ve found a flashlight is pretty handy with finding the quick on dogs with black nails. I can trim my pup and my Husky, my senior GSD hates it so much, the vet has to sedate and muzzle her.

I've never quicked any of mine.Yet.They don't enjoy it but it's the only time they get bacon treats so they look very sad but put up with it.

The magnifier is a brilliant idea, definitely going to steal that tip from you! I used to do my friends bulldog for her because she was too nervous to do it. I cut his quick a few times 😳. And he didn’t even have black nails! Made me feel like the worst person in the world every time.

I quicked Shasta once really bad. I felt horrible. Superglue works wonders to stop the bleeding! She forgave me.....


I went down and got a Dremel. She took to it really easy. Now it is no problem, and I will never look back. Her nails look so good, and you won't get scratched by the sharp edges left after clipping anymore. I get complements on them all the time.

Nitro was sedated for hip Xrays as a youngster, I requested they clip his nails while he was under. He woke up real quick when they started on his nails. I use a dremel on him, no stress or pressure.
