My pet's nails are not being cut cleanly. Am I doing something wrong?

If you are having difficulty cutting your pet's nails, make sure to cut quickly and firmly. This will avoid any cracking or hangnails.  

Why is the light not working?

This may happen if the battery compartment is not properly secure. Make sure that the cover of the compartment is tightly screwed in by turning it counter-clockwise.

My pet isn't sitting still so I can clip their nails. Tips?

Many pets get nervous during the nail-cutting process. We recommend getting another person to assist you in distracting your pet with noises or treats!

Can I use PetiCare on an animal that's not a cat or dog?

If you are able to cut your pets' nails with a guillotine trimmer, you will be able to use the PetiCare. The PetiCare will not illuminate the quicks in any animals with dark or black nails. 


If there is any hesitation, please contact your vet. 

What kind of trimmer is PetiCare?
