Peticure and PediPaws are almost identical pet nail trimmers. I can see how a lot of pet owners could confuse the two. Most pet owners hate clipping their pet's nails. Your pet squirms, it's awkward to restrain them and you're trying not to hurt them by cutting the nail below the quick. Have a look at the differences between the Peti Cure and PediPaws in this video review.
- Peticure and PediPaws both claim to be revolutionary pet nail trimmers.
- Fast, easy, gentle way to keep your pet's nails trim, smooth and round with no pain or mess.
- Precision emery filing wheel gently removes thin layers of nail.
- Leaves your home safe from scratches and your pet's paws soft to the touch.
- The protective cap catches filings so there's no mess.
- [tags]peticure_vs_pedipaws[/tags]Both have rotating files but unlike pet clippers they're not supposed to crack or split the nail.
- You can find both of these products in stores that sell As Seen on TV products.
- By the way, one Peticure user mentioned that you need to use a good "C" battery.
Megan tries the nail trimmers on both her dog and cat. It was nice that pet expert Dr. Karyl Ropko on hand for her advice.
Peticure vs PediPaw Results
Overall the Peticure seemed to do a much better job. The file seemed to rotate at a higher RPM. It's also much smoother and quicker than the PediPaws.
PediPaws seemed to vibrate on the nail. It stalls and stops rotating when nails are being trimmed. Dr. Ropko felt PediPaws didn't spin as quickly as PediPaws. If you need to take off a significant length of nail, it takes 10 to 20 minutes of on-off grinding.
For Both Peticure and PediPaws
- The one good thing is that neither of them cause bleeding.
- The noise can be scary for most pets.
- The grinder causes friction and can actually get the claw really hot. So you can only grind for a few seconds at a time before you need to move off the claw.
- Both makers warn that your pets may need some positive reinforcement and training to get used to the nail trimmers. The directions say that it can take up to a week to get your pets used to the sound.
- Even after following the instructions to gradually introduce pets, some completely hate it.
- Peticure may be good to round sharp ends off after clipping them.
Megan tried both nail trimmers for several weeks and discovered a few more issues.
- Meagan stopped using PediPaws all together.
- Her dog never got used to it and actually became more scared because he knew it was coming.
- It took way too long to trim her dog’s nails. She felt that clipping was much quicker.
- It was quicker with her cat, so Megan thought it may work better on smaller dogs and cats.
- Very messy and smelly since the nail dust goes all over the place. It's supposed to stay in the protective cap but it seems to seep out. She had to empty the device every three nails.
The Final Verdict
Peticure and PediPaws are just too much trouble to use. I've also seen a couple other video reviews and they mentioned the same thing. Unless you have a really laid back cat or dog and have ample time on your hands, both of these nail trimmers aren't for you. It's much easier just to head over to a vet or salon and save you and your pet lots of stress. Talking about stress...if you've ever wanted to remove pet stains off your carpet I came across two videos for you.
