And when he was done chewing on the leash, he chewed on the cage. Oh, dear! Moonpie was no better about having her nails clipped, she tried to bite and had to be muzzled :( I've got to move on having her let me clip her nails myself, because clearly the vet's office is no place she wants to be.

Still, we now have Finn. They asked "Is that your dog?" and I did not recognize him! He's a completely different dog! He looks like a little lamb, a little lamb that people care about. Pictures are forthcoming. Actually, I want to get current pics of all the animals, so maybe I'll post them all.

hi, I'm new.

when I clipped my cat ohgr's claws, I would wrap him snugly, but not too snugly, in a towel & hold him in my lap(head facing away).
then, I would pull out each paw.
when we were finished, I let him attack the clippers to relieve his frustrations.
and he did. every time.

I love this brief history of your animal friends. And of course I'll love seeing their pictures.

ah, I see.
thank you for the introduction :)))

the "burrito technique" doesn't work on everyone-it never worked for my kiddos when they were infants either. I had to sing to them, in a voice only a baby could love. ;)

I'm a veterinary nurse. if a dog is aggressive, or anxious, two people do the nail trimming job. one holds the dog-small dogs are put in an arm lock(think head lock, but looser) while the other tech trims, large dogs are laid on the floor, on their side and held loosely. it usually works. when the animal is nutty, we sedate. obviously, you can't do that.
cats, we scruff. if needed.

it all depends on the animal. usually, when they're in their home environment, it's completely different. all of these scenarios are at an animal clinic.

I'm pleased to meet someone who clearly adores & deeply cares for their animal companions. can never have too many animal loving friends!!

funny you say that,
I'm actually quite the opposite of a hoarder. (although I know it was stated in a joking manner)

I'm a minimalist & a neat freak :P

poor max, sounds like a bit of an outsider!!

Oh puppies. Silly, wonderful, occasionally exasperating fuzzes that they are. *offers ear scritchies to the duo mentioned in the post*
