How about this brand? It seems it gets better review than the Dremel?

I also read somewhere and found it to be true, that if I keep his paw closer to this body rather than leg stretched out that Ernie doesn't try to pull his leg away while I am trimming. I hold each nail as it is being filed so as to minimize vibration/chatter that would be uncomfortable. Work quickly so that you don't build up a lot of heat/friction, even if you have to do a little, move on to another nail, and come back to it.
We have the exact same Dremel and love it. We also give him a piece of string cheese after each individual nail and the rest of the cheese stick at the end. I also hold his nails and will often come back to do a second pass on individual nails to avoid too much heat on one nail. We do nail filing once a week and he knows he's getting cheese when he sees the Dremel!

Dharma is 6 and her nails grow like crazy! Her front nails are super long and her back nails are good. I have to take her to PetSmart for a clipping or a grind. She always seems to be wiggly and her tail drops when she first gets into the groomers. We have to consistently take her to have them done. Yes it did get worse when she had a paw injury. Now she gets her favorite stuffed chipmunk or squirrel right after and then when we are in the car on the way home we stop at Wendy's for a plain junior hamburger. I gave up on doing her nails myself a long time ago. But my excuse is also that I was clipping the nails of 2 cats as well.... That's way too many nails.

Live, Love, Laugh.... Dharma you have helped me to do just that. Born on May 24, 2013
