Does anyone have any Ideas that I Haven't tryed? This works for some of them but I have one girl who's got knifes for toes

Maybe you could take her to a vet and have them clip her nails for you? It's usually very inexpensive .

You could also try putting a stone near the water bottle...that'll also help wear the nails down.

you can put a brick in the cage if the cage can support it.

Hi, don't know if this is much help but I have a swirmy hamster and when I do hers I wrap her tightly in a towel (with her paws out) so she can't see but can still breathe! and while I hold her I get another person to snip!
