i use toe nail clippers for young pigs, then move onto animal clippers when they get bigger mostly the back feet which get huge and thick! :)>>>

I read a web page about holding them for clipping and if you put one or two fingers between front legs and chin and the rest of your hand behind front legs then it stops them being able to get at your fingers to bite you

The deed is done. As predicted Tam was a ***** and was snorting at me and Amy. I held both as adviced so thankyou for that.
Gaga was a darling. I think she was expecting a nail file and some pink varnish as well.lol

I'm a wuss with nail clipping too! My oldest son is 9 and I have never cut his nails! It makes me feel funny think bout it. Lol

I use toe nail clippers, but they aren't really big enough to take my girls nails. Although both my girls are TERRIBLE having there nails done, I hate doing it now.

I use Toe Nail Clippers, the big ones. All my pigs are 2 +, except Milo and Esme.


Hmm who's the worse for Nail Clipping, depending on Pebbles mood, she will try and bite. Patrick is a fidget, and Milo is a nightmare. All and all no one is good when it comes to nails. :x
