I know what you mean Lucy needs hers done again she just hates it she puts up such a fight. And hers grow like weeds so she needs them cut often.

This may be WAY out there, but I wonder if that Pedi Paws thing for dogs would work on a bird? Of course the noise might freak them out.

Tangos hurt when they need to be clipped I can't imagine how bad Summers must hurt, especially if she has a good strong grip :eek:

The Pedi Paws are worthless the motor stops as you try and use it and it will pull the nail. If you want to try something like that get the Peticure Peticure.com | The Official Site - pamper your pet with a peticure! they are the ones on the actual infomercial not the cheap knock offs you see at the store. And I dont see why you couldn't use one on a bird if they got use to it. I think I read somewhere of someone using one or trying to at least.

Ooooh, isn't Summer the little lady getting a pedicure today :) I hope she is relaxed for it.

I've heard the pedi-paws is a waste of money. I was buying it and the cashier said, "please rethink this, we get them back daily (supposedly it was the power level and the battery drain)". Dremel works great and I believe they now sell a version for pet nails.

Summer's back!! She's a hot mess because the towel ruffled her feathers! She was SO UNHAPPY!!! The vet put her down and she waddled to me giving me the stink eye the entire time!! MOOOOOMMMMMM WHAT'S THE MEANING OF THIS?!

At first she was super unhappy because she had to ride to the vet in a dog crate.. then she realized it's not so bad because she can climb it and look out :)

Pictures coming soon!
