You can help the situation by trimming the pointed tips from the claws. These scissors also work great for your dog. These scissors are made of stainless steel, and will stay sharp for many years to come. They measure 3 inches long, and they weigh only 0.7 ounces. ( Pack of 2 Pcs.) You can save on your pet grooming cost by doing the trimming yourself. These scissors have specially shaped rounded blades made for the claws. Extra sharp and sturdy-they cut through the nail quickly.
