I've never tried a dremmel on mine just used nail cutters when their nails were too long. Gnerally they wear them down naturally. I have been following a discussion of late on a dog board I'm on, and foudn out that a dremmel is a pretty good thing. If you do happen to accidentally nick the quick the dremmel with cauterize it automatically, which is a big plus. There's also another one they were discussing called the peticure. It's like a dremmel but with a guard on it.

The Peticure! I just saw a commercial for it the other morning while watching a dog show, and I wanted to take a look at their website, but could not recall the name of the item! Thanks Teresa.

I refuse to use cutters as I don't want to cut their quik. I use a dremmel on both of mine and it works GREAT I love it. We paid $20 for one at Home Depot, it's cordless and takes about 5-10 minutes to do each dog. Sure beats $15 a visit to PetSmart!

We currently use nail cutters... I've got about two or three pair here.

I've been considering buying a dremel to start doing their nails, not because I dislike the cutters, but because nail cutting might go faster. I used to keep a dremel when I did rabbit breeding & rescue, for rabbits that had misaligned teeth or malocclusion. I would dremel their teeth back into position, and save quite a few rabbits from being put down for their condition.
