A nail grinder is a rotary tool powered by the battery or electricity, which quickly shorten the long nail with perfection. It’s a lot easier than nail clips to shorten the toenails of your dog and also lessens the nail filing hazard.
This model will work fine on smaller dogs and for owners who are efficient at dog nail grinding.

And most importantly it doesn’t bother you with wire or cable. You just need to charge it for at least three hours. The rechargeable battery of this best dog nail grinder is removable. So if you think you can purchase one more to use for emergencies. Like when you’re just end of the trimming and the battery runs out. Usually, it never happened with this product even after several years of using. But when it gets old, the battery drains charge quickly. Dremel also sells the battery, grinder bands separately. However, they do offer one year of warranty with the purchase. Need a visual demonstration? Check out this video on how to grind your dog’s nails.

The FURminator Nail Grinder is a convenient, stress-free tool to trim your pet's nails quickly and painlessly. The rotating grinding band smooths and shapes nails without leaving sharp edges, as is common with traditional nail clippers. The easy-grip handle gives you good control during the grooming process and the anti-microbial plastic casing helps prevent spread of germs and bacteria. Pets require nail trimming on a regular basis, usually every 3 to 4 weeks. Untrimmed nails can cause your dog or cat great discomfort, including sore feet, legs and hips, as walking on long nails can be a painful experience and may affect natural gait. Keep your pet's nails salon perfect with the FURminator Nail Grinder.It is all about with this electric dog nail grinder. It has a strong that the company promise is a “safe, effective, less stressful alternative to clipping”. In comparison to the Wahl model, this Dremel device seems to be . There are certainly fewer complaints about discomfort and distress. This has to be partially due to the .Although the Multipro can obviously go much faster, and this is handy for other craft and tool projects, I do not go above the "2" setting on it. It's usually on the "1" or between it and the "2" setting. I would estimate this is somewhere around 5,000 to 7,500 rpms. If you use it much faster, the friction will be too great and it will get too hot for the dog's nails. If this happens, it will hurt the dog. Please note: there are other brands of grinders and similar tools. But, since I've never used them, I write from the perspective of my experience with the Dremel and its accessories only. A proper introduction to the Dremel is the most important step to grinding your dog's nails. If the dog's first experience is negative, then you will have a long way to go to having a dog that will permit you to grind the nails. If done right, then your dogs will just relax and enjoy the pedicure. Two of mine actually have fallen asleep while I was doing their nails. Keep in mind, you can introduce a Dremel to a dog at any age! Mine are all rescues and all have adapted to the use of a Dremel. (By the way, if the dog is new to you or to having its nails done, you should also "introduce" the dog to having its paws handled by you and then make a point to handling them daily. You can use the same methods I describe here and just adapt them to paw handling generally.) Finally, I always keep some quick-stop styptic powder handy and some Vaseline when doing nails. The powder can be used to stop bleeding if you do nick the quick. In my experience, usually just applying pressure to the end of the nail is enough without the powder. Unlike clipping nails, if you do get close enough to hit the quick when grinding, it is so slight that it does not bleed very much and the dogs do not seem to hurt as much as when you "clip" the quick. But, I still keep it on hand. The Vaseline is just for vanity. When you grind, there is a lot of dust and the nails get rather dusty and grimy looking. If you put some Vaseline on when done, they look all nice and shiny black again:First off, a nail grinder is a great alternative to sharp clippers. There’s much less risk of damage when used correctly. However, your first challenge is getting your dog to cooperate long enough to use it properly! Rather than fighting with your pup and forcing the issue, I suggest helping your dog get used to the experience and making it a pleasant event.
