I hate clipping Oreo's nails! It is such a pain, and I am so afraid to go too short. I've done it once before, totally fipped, and realised it was no big deal. i thought i killed him! Thanx for styptic powder, I no longer think I'm going to kill him if i do cut the quick. Do any of you have any tips? He's so squirmy and won't stay still. Since his nails are so curve, they flatten when I clip them, and it doesn't look like that would feel very good. i'm afraid to crack his nail when it bends like that. Should i use something other that human nail clippers?
