I was having a lot of trouble with kayla too, cutting her nails was such a production! I bought a dremmel (electric filer) which was a bit better but still not good enough. Then I took her into Pet Value in ontario and asked them to do it, I wanted to see if they had any tricks up their sleaves. I expected them to use at least a muzzle or something, but they just told me to hold her head and in 2 minutes they were done with hardly a fight! I don't know how she did it, but I did notice they trimmed with her leg bent, kind of like cleaning out a horses hoof if you know what I mean? This way they could see the quick so they didn't cut it, and since they were standing behind Kayla she didn't have to look and seemed much calmer about it. Her nails haven't grown out enough for me to try this myself so I don't know if it will help or not but I'm keeping my fingers crossed
Oh yeah they only charged $5.
