Question by MattieB: What kind of nail clippers should I use on a guinea pig?
Are any pet clippers I can get at the store good enough? I know I'll need a smaller size since guinea pigs aren't as big as most dogs and cats. Should I get the scissor type clippers, or the pliers type ones? Or do you just use human nail clippers? I want to use whatever is safest and most painless for the guinea pig.

You can use human clippers, but I use special guinea pig and rabbit claw trimmers – link here: http://www.petsathome.com/shop/claw-trimmers-by-options-15832
If you Google ‘guinea pig nail clippers' other brands of the same item come up 🙂
But when you clip their nails make sure you cut below the blood line – you'll see the blood line as a short, thin line of red. Cut before this, otherwise the nail will bleed and the piggy will squeal!!
If your pig has black nails then it is pretty much impossible to see the blood line but as long as you don't trim the nails too short then you won't have a problem 🙂
