So, how about PediPaws?

Being in the "Pet Business" (i-pets.com), I've received numerous e-mails about carrying PediPaws™ in our inventory, or even worse, many spam solicitations to buy the PediPaws™. These usually lead to a website not even associated with the manufacturer, sent from an email address that isn't able to accept mail. I'll admit it, I was curious to try PediPaws™, "the revolutionary nail trimmer for your dog or cat. The newest and fastest way to keep your pet’s nails trim rounded and smooth with no mess", but the $19.95 price tag was a little much to pay just for a test-run, and the manufacturer didn't offer to send me a free one to try. (Hint, hint.) I was surprised and pleased to receive an e-mail from Jennifer, from Slate, informing me that as part of their occasional video series called “As Spun on TV” which tests “As Seen on TV” products, Slate had tested PediPaws™, and recorded the results in a video. The video is fun to watch - the pets are not happy to be test subjects, to say the least, and are nowhere close to being as co-operative as the ones in the manufacturer's video. Slate's results: Initial tests are not encouraging but testers later conclude that PediPaws works well with aging, couch-potato type pets. Check out the video: http://www.slatev.com/player.html?id=9152426001 and visit PediPaws™ website if you're interested.

I got one for my dog for Christmas. It works a lot better than the manual clippers, and I don't cut his nails too short. I find it to be a good product. Another product I recommend that will save you time and money, like pedipaws, is a Fur-Zoff. It picks up pet hair off any fabric and it lasts forever. Only costs $9.99 and it will save you $$ on lint rollers. I like it a lot. Get one at http://www.furzoff.net - Let me know if you use any ither convenient products. Thanks!
