Beware of Imitations: Resco invented the nail trimmer in 1937 and since then we've made continuous improvements in our products to insure that we are the standard through out the world. We invented the replaceable blade nail trimmer and our design is so unique it's patented. Our product is a favorite with veterinarians and groomers, yet it is affordable for pet owners. Others duplicate our product but don't meet our standards. Nail grooming is necessary and humane because most pets don't wear down their nails. Doing it once a month is a good rule. Not grooming nails regularly can cause the nails to grow so long that it is pain full for the dog to walk. And the nail can curve and in grow causing infection. Puppy's nails grow faster than adult dogs so they may need their nails trimmed more often. Replaceable Blades If the blades become dull they can be replaced with a Resco Blade Replacement PF0400 (1 blade) or PF0440 (6 blades). Unusual Uses of Resco Nail Trimmers: Trimming pet bird beaks and claws. Clipping the teeth of laboratory rats. Trimming rabbit nails. Trimming ferret nails.
