    I became familiar with the Oster brand when I had a Persian cat and used their grooming tools on him for years. (Actually, even before that, my grandparents used their grooming tools on their Miniature Schnauzer… so we’re talking more than 17 years ago.)

    Recently we adopted a small older dog – our first. I bought a regular nail trimmer, and even despite my experiences with cutting animal nails for 20+ years, I still managed to cut the quick of her nails and make her bleed. So, to help both of us, I looked into electric/grinding pet nail trimmers. Of course, I had seen the more “commercialized” pet nail trimmer advertised on TV and in my local pet store, but wavered a bit about how reliable it might be. Based on my past experiences with Oster, I rationalized that I’d rather spend my $20+ on their product than with the more “commercialized” manufacturer.

    Needless to say, I’m REALLY glad I made this investment. Even at first look, the nail trimmer is durable and is absent of flimsy parts. Aside from the main coarse grinder, there are two separate grinder (for lack of a better term) “add-ons” that you can attach for a medium and fine grind. Additionally, it comes with a 1-year warranty.

    My mom, who has 3 mastiffs, uses a regular $60+ dremel for her dog’s nails. Essentially this Oster nail trimmer is a dremmel with a nail guard that has holes to accommodate 4 nail sizes (very small, small, medium, large). You can choose to use the nail guard or not, since it twists on and off. I feel confident using it – I can position my dog in my lap, pull back the fur on her paws, AND grind her nails all at the same time. And, unlike my mom, I can use it when she’s awake (not sleepy), since now I’m not worried about her moving her paw too much.

    I would recommend this product to all of my dog-owning friends.

    Fabulous little tool! Very easy to use on my dog without scaring him. The motor is quiet on the low speed, and a bit louder on fast speed. I start out slow, then switch to high speed when he relaxes a bit, back to slow if he gets antsy. Mind you, restlessness is a pretty good sign you have gone as far down on the nail as is reasonable to go. My dog’s nails are black, so it is very easy to trim too far, even with this tool. So trim a bit, check the tip of the nail, trim a bit more if necessary. Just don’t get crazy and start grinding away without checking your progress, because, like traditional clippers, it is indeed possible to “quick” your pet (make him bleed) by nicking the tip of the nail blood vessel – I haven’t done it yet, but I did come close once, so I know it is possible. This is true even with use of the nail guard. So, if you just go slow and use care, this tool is ingenious. I emphasize, use care — if you over-trim (quick) your dog or cat, you may as well throw this tool away, because once they start to fear any tool, it is next to impossible to get them to let you use it on them. On the other hand, if you really want proper short nails, remember that the vein naturally recedes with a shortened nail, and grows longer with an untrimmed nail. So just trim a bit each week, and that quick will start to recede, and you will then be able to get the nail shorter. Whatever you do, do not expect to be able to transform 1-inch nails back to Westminster show length with a single trim, with this or any tool. Like anything, just use some common sense.
