Zen Clipper has a patented conical blade that only allows the tip of the pet’s nail into the cutting area, it’s like putting the tip of the nail into a small funnel. You clip just the tip and avoid the quick. For the cost of 2 visits to the groomer or pet store, now you can safely and easily trim your pet’s nails at home! Available in seven sizes from kittens to reptiles to many dogs.

Why chose Zen Clipper®?

Zen Clipper® is a new revolutionary pet nail clipper that is designed to clip the tip of the nail. Zen Clipper has a patent-pending conical blade that only allows the tip of the pet's nail into the cutting area. It's like putting the nail into a small funnel, taking the anxiety out of clipping nails while providing effortless precision. 

Some of the Zen Clipper Benefits

The unique conical design protects the quick. The stainless steel blade design shears and does not crush the nail like other standard clippers. Made from high-quality stainless steel for a long-lasting, sharp-clipping edge and blades. The cushioned non-slip handle and stainless steel design make a comfortable clipper that is durable, attractive and easy to use.

Zen Clipper is especially helpful for pet owners with limited near vision since it will prevent you from cutting off too much of the nail, even if you cannot see up close. There is a YouTube video of an owner using Zen Clipper with a blindfold on!

Miriam H - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I’m always looking for products that can help me make grooming easier for me and less stressful for my two (and one kitten on the way!) cats. I found an ad for Zen Clippers in Modern Cat magazine and was very intrigued. I love the spring action, and the circular blade goes right through the nail without any strain! I bought the largest size for my 15lb boy, and will be purchasing the smallest for my new kitten when he is ready to come home from his foster mom. There’s no pinching or crushing like with other clippers. These are the best design out there!

Our Product Story

Zen Clipper was invented by cat owner Michael Bihlmaier of Northwest Illinois. After years of struggling to keep his cats’ nails trimmed, Michael called on his background as a trained machinist to create a very special blade. Many prototypes were made and the shape of the Zen Clipper blade was refined again and again. The end result of all this effort is a patented nail trimmer, the only one like it, that ensures you will never trim more nail than you intend.

How It Works - How To Use

All nails are slightly different on every pet, although most are similar in size and shape on a given pet. The first time you use Zen Clipper, observe that the quick of the nail, the red part that has the blood supply, won’t be cut by the blade. Just a few tries and you’ll be using the Zen Clipper confident that it “Clips the Tip and Not the Quick”.

Frequently asked questions:

What if I get the wrong size for my pet?

As always we will never sell, loan or otherwise share your information outside our company.

My dog or cat has dark nails. How do I know where the quick is located, so I can figure out what size I need? 

There are a couple ways to do this. Look at the underside of the nail – times the quick or blood supply will be visible from the underside when it can’t be seen from above. Another is to trim a little bit at a time until you see a little white circle just start to appear at the end of the nail – this is the beginning of the quick. Stop when you see that white circle. A third option is to have your pet’s nails professionally trimmed and then measure after – good professional groomers, vet techs and veterinarians typically have years of experience and they will trim to the length you want to try to maintain. Trimming a little at a time is easier on your pet and safer.

The clippers, especially the larger sizes, require more force to use than I can create with my fingers in the finger holes. What should I do?

Grasp the clippers in your palm and wrap your fingers around the handle, not through the finger holes. This allows you to use the strength of your entire hand. Most people, after trying both the finger holes and the whole-hand method, use their whole hand.
