Digging her claws in me

Postby SANDSTORMtbeardie11 » Thu Mar 04, 2021 9:30 am

Everytime i pick Sandstorm her claws are very sharp. Like VERY. There are cuts all over my hands from her. (i can even feel them though my shirt) I know she doesn't mean it, and i don't want to file them down on my own because i dont think it would end well, and i doubt my mom will take her to the vet to get the cut or filed down.

If you don't want to file or clip them (it's not so bad once you get the hang of it) then try offering a rough(ish) rock or maybe some ceramic tile to walk on. The harder and somewhat rough surfaces can help keep their nails in check naturally.

Its super easy to understand and hope this helps! Just be sure to wash the clippers before and after. I have a special pair for mien that I still wash. You can even use normal clippers.
