PediPaws Pet Nail Trimmer

You've seen it on TV. You've winced at the thought of hurting your sweet dog or cat when trimming claws. And now we're putting PediPaws to the test. The photo on the right shows the tip up close. The idea is fairly simple. A tip fitted with a sandpaper ring rotates and files the claw. The amber top has a notch in it where the claw is supposed to be inserted.

It runs on two C batteries. The top unscrews
to replace the sandpaper when it's worn out. My PediPaws cost $35.97, which includes the cost of shipping, three replacement sandpaper rings and a "free" Shed Ender that they throw in. Ten replacement "filing bands" (their term sounds better than sandpaper rings) can be ordered for a whopping $7.99 plus $2.99 shipping.

The instructions recommend introducing PediPaws by turning it on and giving your pet a treat. Repeat as necessary until the pet is comfortable around the PediPaws. As it happens, I have plenty of victims, er, willing customers. Well, they're willing to eat treats anyway. Stay tuned for the realities of using PediPaws.
