The Ancol Ergo Guillotine Clipper is a quick and effective way to trim long claws. The nail can be placed into the guillotine and simply snipped. The clippers have an ergonomic, non-slip grip handle. Your pet’s claws should only be cut when they are calm. To avoid cutting the quick, only trim the very end of the nail. Ensure you hold your pet’s paw firmly so the claw does not move or twist as you are using the guillotine clippers.
