My pigs are very squirmy and really don't like being touched or handled. I notice that their nails are getting quite long and I'm dreading cutting them:eek: Two of the pigs I can manage to pick up and pet but the third one just absolutely despises me. She will do anything to getaway. (She's an escape artist also:() I don't want to be trimming her names and she flips out and run away and hide! I'm also not too good at trimming nails and it makes me nervous. If anyone has any tips or tricks they are greatly appreciated by me and my three piggies, Lulu, Mer, and Lexie.:help:

Wrapping and bribery with snacks usually works but if you aren’t confident then piggy will sense that and it will make it harder. If you really aren’t sure then I would go to the vet to get it done

keep some cornflour or cyptic powder close by in case they bleed a little (they shouldn't if you don't cut the quick but we've all made mistakes) bribing them with their favourite foods is always a good plan.
