I was excited when I purchased my PediPaws. My husband and I recently bought a new couch set so we were hoping this gadget would be a cinch in keeping the nails trimmed on our four cats to avoid constant scratching.

Our cats hate having their nails trimmed and keeping them still is a chore. It's basically a grinder so you would think it would be easy ... however read on ...

Before you can actually use this product you first must accustom your pet to the PediPaws. Unless he or she is in a coma, your pet will absolutely despise the sound and vibration of it. Don't let that deter you! As the caring, dedicated pet owner that you are, you will persevere!

After one very long week, we learned all of our cats refused to do the same ...

The experience revealed some drawbacks with the PediPaws: It files the nail in miniscule amounts at a time and can only be used in bursts of seven seconds or so. (If used longer, the heat generated through friction could injure your pet.) If your pet's nails are overlong, this project could take you days---maybe weeks. Even if the nails were recently trimmed, you will have to constantly file them to maintain that length. It also uses batteries and has one speed ... SLOW. I would have preferred a corded one instead. It also has a safety guard that blocks your view, and is bulky and awkward. In the future we will stick to the clippers and file ... or have their nails trimmed at the vet.

As for myself, I intend to keep it and, during evenings while watching TV, I will file my own nails. It is my hope that its sound, vibration and heat will remind me to never again purchase anything that is: "As Seen On TV."
