What is the best way to cut my hamsters nails any ideas?
I had a pet hamster for 4 years and whenever his nails got a little scratchy we either took him to the vet or got a mediumly rouch nail file and filed them. You may need help if you want to do that… Hold your hamster gently. Take his foot in your fingers and press down only a little so he doesn’t get too angry and it doesn’t hurt, but enough so that his toes and nails spread out a bit, then VERY gently file them… Repeat on all four… I mean like REALLY gently, try not to move the nail back and forth as you file and make sure you don’t have a file that has those raised sandpapery bumps in them, you want a smoother file! Good luck, and DON’T do this if your hamster has a bad temper!
