Monkey got his nails trimmed today. I knew they were getting too long because Monkey jumped on my back and made a hole in my shirt :(
You may use claw trimmers, but nail clippers for humans work fine.
Press the paws...the claws will extend out. Then cut only the claw and avoid the "quick," which is the pink part (shown above). Cutting the quick may result in bleeding & pain.
When using human nail clippers, position it vertically, which is perpendicular to the way we use it on our nails. This will minimize nail chipping.
