I have read a few articles on here on spur trimming, and see about 10 differnt ways to do this. I have read about using a saw..which that is not something I think I could manage to do safely...for the bird or myself lol. I like the idea of using a rotary tool..or a dremmel. I use these on my dogs toe nails, and just use the "grinder" or like the sander looking thing. Basically the same thing you see on tv referred to as the pedi paws for dogs. Will this work? Can I just buff down the spur? This way if I get close to the core and start to see any pink Iwill be able to stop. I also saw a post where someone clamped the spur in a pair of needle nose pliers and basically wiggled the whole thing out, but I would be afraid of some sort of infection of complication with this. Please let me know what you guys think, and what you have found to work well.
