Whisker Wishes Veterinarian Grade Pet Clippers are a guillotine-style cat nail clipper that works well for cats and small dogs. They operate like a small pair of scissors and are very easy to use. This is the style of cat nail trimmer I prefer to use because I don’t have any trouble seeing the quick on their nails. The quick is the pink part of your kitty’s nail tip that has blood flow to it. Cutting the quick is painful for your cat and will result in lots of bleeding and probably fear next time you go to trim nails. If you have trouble seeing the quick, even in bright lighting, you will want to get a pair of cat clippers with a quick guard.
The blades of the Whisker Wishes Pet Clippers are sharp and curved to better fit and clip your kitty’s nails. They are long-lasting and made of stainless steel. These nail scissors can be used on cats or small dogs. Keeping their nails trimmed prevents them from snagging on carpets, and helps curb furniture scratching (although you probably still want to have cat scratchers around your house, so they have somewhere safe to scratch). You may have to get your cat really relaxed or wrap up in a towel or blanket to help keep them calm and still while you cut (see our review video to watch my sister clip the nails on her cats with these clippers).
