    Hi guys, I have offered to help my younger brother by trimming his bearded dragon's badly curved nails. I don't know how long they've been like this, or how to approach clipping them because they are so curved. I understand that there are nerves and blood vessels in the nail, so I don't want...

    So, over the course of the last couple of weeks i've noticed my Beardie's claws have started to curl and he's gradually gotten more lethargic as a result. I keep his nails to what i've been told is an appropriate length by trimming regularly and yet still it's getting worse. Any thoughts?

    Hi All! I am concerned about my Horsfield tortoise. I have kept him for many years and dispute being amazingly grubby every time I bathe him I have had no problems. For the most part he is happy energetic and healthy. Lately I have noticed his claws wearing down. I tended to ignore it as most...

    Just bought a two year old horsefield from a well know reptile shop and the assistant noticed on its front right foot that its claws are not correctly formed and you can only see them when you lift the foot up. The woman said it doesn't affect the tortoise in any way and it still walks normal...

    Can anyone give me advice on cutting my lizards claws. I have a leapard lizard which is about 4years old and I've noticed her starting to get them caught on leaves and things. There are already plenty rocks in the enclosure and I have now put sand paper down beneath the sand. Advice would...

    Hi there, I have my first beardie and he is now 4 months old. It looks like his claws need clipping and I have been reading about that and it seems to me that the same rules apply for them like for other clawed animals, that is, only clip off the clear part and take care not to cut into the...

    Any tips on trimming raccoon claws? Taking her to vets is not an option as she wouldn't tolerate anyone else trying to do it. I can get one at a time, with a lot of wrestling lol.. I've tried positive reinforcement.. But as she's quite spoilt and gets treats regardless, it doesn't seem to be...

    Hi, I noticed today that my beardie has broke a toenail on one of his back feet. I've checked many sources all saying different things about them growing back, but I was most worried about this being a problem for him in anyway. I've changed his substrate and disinfected his vivarium in case of...

    Today I looked at my gecko today and her toes looked odd, I don't know how I hadn't noticed before. Some of her toes are missing as well. I believe it is because of the shed skin around the toes which she couldn't remove was cutting off blood supply to them, is this right? One toe has gone black...

Only recently has she started to bite at one claw in particular so I'm wondering if anyone else has had or heard of this problem?
