Ok this is probably a bit controversial but does anyone do tails and dewclaws themselves? If so what do you use for equipment? Where do you get it ect? All the vets around here are charging atrocious amounts to do it now. One vet i've always used is still fairly reasonable but i've never been very happy with them doing them. I truly don't believe their cutting devise is sharp enough. usually they cut the tails and then have to PULL the tail once it's cut instead of it just cutting clean and falling off. I'm NOT at all a squeemish person but have felt this is traumatizing for myself and the puppies. i feel like this intensifies the pain for the pups and this might sound horrible but I feel like i could probably do a better, faster job than this vet does! I've seen it done enough that i feel I could do it myself but they have this little tool that looks lik ea pair of pliers with a edge that has a V so that it cuts the bone shorter than two sides of the skin (so the skin can close over the bone). i was wondering if everyone else does this or if there is another method people use?
