Good news for you and Piggy.

A guinea pigs quick is usually quite short so you should be able to take them back without much risk of cutting the quick.

well i don't know about the quick. The back feet quick is quite long but the nail is see through and it's easier to cut. My mom is paranoid about cutting her "macaronis" because once she cut too close to the quick and it bled. :sad:

TD, there's this little nail clipper specially for piggies that we have. When cutting piggy nails, we need 2 people. One to hold and distract with carrots and one to clip nails. BUT...when holding piggy you can't just hold anywhere. Oh no...nope! She's particularly fussy about holding her tummy because she's ticklish(i presume) and she squirms. Also you can't make it seem like you're holding her paw...there's a specific way that she can put her paw on your finger and her nails spread and perfect position for manicure. :laughing:
