A Safe and Painless Alternative to Clipping
Using clippers and scissors to trim your pet’s nails can cause splintering, cracking, or bleeding–all of which can lead to discomfort and pain for your pet. That’s why the Dremel Pet Grooming Kit features a rotary tool that provides a harmless alternative to clipping. Offering two speed settings–5,000 and 13,000 rpm–the 4.8-volt rotary tool lets you safely and carefully grind down your pet’s nails in stages to avoid cutting the quick.
Lightweight, Cordless Design
The Dremel Pet Grooming Kit’s compact rotary tool has large, easy-to-operate controls. And because the rotary tool is cordless and lightweight, you can groom your pet’s nails anywhere with optimum precision.
Drum and BandDo-it-Yourself Grooming
To use the Dremel Pet Grooming Kit, simply secure your pet in a comfortable position and make sure any long fur is safely out of the way. Use one hand to support the toe and claw and the other hand to operate the rotary tool. Without applying pressure, allow the rotating drum to grind each nail for up to three seconds, making sure to alternate between all the nails on each paw. Frequently switching nails during grinding keeps your pet comfortable and prevents nails from getting too hot.
Easy Drum and Band Replacements
Replacing the Dremel sanding drum or band is a cinch with the kit’s included wrench. Using approved accessories for this pet grooming tool is recommended. For Dremel sanding drums, use 407 and 430; for Dremel sanding bands, use 408, 431, 438, 445, and 446.
