Nail Trimming

Postby flyer_1 » Fri Dec 04, 2009 7:18 pm

Nail trimming I was told once that this was not necessary, I have a wheel with a sandy trimmer but not in the cage and I'm not sure if they will ever use it, what can I do it, should I bring them into the vet or is there something I can do about it myself.

My flyers have NEVER had their nails trimed. They have branches to crawl on and cement bird perches to sit on. Some people will put a rough flat stone under their food dish. Flyer nails should never need trimmimg unless there is some odd problem.
