I am going to buy one of them for the dogs nails. I have heard good and bad things about both. Which do you all prefer? If a Dremel what kind? The Peticure is like $60 on the website for one for big dogs. Is a dremel a better buy]? >
If we ban Pit Bulls and Rottweilers are humans some dont like next ?
The dremel is good. Just becareful their nails heat up from the friction very fact and it can hurt them. I bought a cheap dremel...in price not quality that runs of batterys. I do not remeber the name, but it's for golfers to sharpen golf tee's. you do not need one that goes fast, actually the faster ones go to fast and will make thier nails hot almost istantly.
I believe a dog's finest hour, the greatest fulfillment he holds dear, is when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle-with a ball in his mouth."
If a sandpaper band is used with a dremel there will not be any burning like there is using the grinding stone. I have been using the sandpaper bands for years on my dogs and have even done cats, ferrets and a rabbit with no problems. I have 3 rechargeable rotary tools. One is the Oster brand and the other two are made by Dremel and all work well and the parts are interchangeable , even the batteries.
I was planning on purchasing the peticure for my dogs until I saw it. It looks like my dremel. If anyone has used their dremel on their dogs which sandpaper did you use. I have several different grades of sandpaper with my dremel.
I didn't know that you could dremel dog nails until I went to a dog show. I asked one of the people waiting to go into the ring how they got the girl's nails so short and she told me she dremeled (sp) them. I started using a dremel the next day on my dogs and they like it a TON more than using the metal file that I used to use on them. Plus, it is about 10xs faster! I just bought a new one that is a cordless rechargeable. It is a lot easier because I don't have to worry about the cord.
