Hi

Top tips for trimming nails please. I’ve been having a look and I think they will need to be done soon but our new piggies are still weary of us and rarely let us pick them up and stroke them.

is it better to book in an the vets and get them to do it?

I am terrified of cutting too much off and hurting them.

Thanks in advance.
😀

If your piggies are new its always a good idea to get them registered with the vet and have a routine health check anyway, so why not get the vet to do them the first time, while they settle in and get used to you!

Thank you I have registered with the vets and was planning on a general check so I will ask :-)
