Found out right away that the battery installation indicator on the handle is backwards. If you put the batteries in the way it says, they do not make contact....ever. The internal contact is backwards. The spring should be on the back screw in poriton and the tab should be inside.
When I got the thing working, it rattled and vibrated terribly! The sander portion was so out of balance that it ground away the clear plastic shield. Not only that, even the rough portion of the sander doesn't grind the nail quickly enough. It takes forever to do one nail. This is nothing like the advertisements.
When I opened it, the sander came off in my hand and wont stay on, now.
I am terribly dissapointed, and can't warn you enough not to buy this piece of junk.

How could we not be happy with this purchase? It was only a few bucks compared to $20-40 in stores. Its really nice that th plastic guide comes off the end and as long as your careful it looks perfectly safe. It took our Maltese/poodle mix a few minutes to get used to it and for us it's a two person job but not bad at all. Too bad he chews all his nails right afterward and then they are immediately sharp again!

This product works perfectly for both cats ,and Dogs. It is much easier to handle than Peti Paws, and works much better too. To use on cats it just takes a bit of common sence you do not imediatly try, and put a buzzing nail trimmer to a cats claws you work slowly getting the cat use to the sound first then progress to a few nails at a time (not all nails at once) your cat will go balistic and you will not fare well.Take your time till the animal gets use to the sound, and it touching there nails. This may take a few weeks .

But for dogs it is much faster in getting them use to it. You just can't expect an animal to automatically take to it you have to take it slowly getting them use to the sound ect. My Chihuahua's, and Poodle took to it right away I was lucky. But cats you must be patient and not expect to just jump in and they except it right away that is just crazy. This product works perfectly I would recomend it to anyone.

I purchased the Pretty Paws Peti Buffer 3 or 4 years ago. My cats HATED having their claws clipped so I decided to try the Buffer. They were not initially crazy about it but have adjusted just fine. Remember, they hated having their claws clipped, and this really does a nice job. It takes the points off the claws without mangling them which is a big improvement. Yes, there is an adjustment period but that's true of most things involving cats. Now they hold pretty still (for cats) and wait for me to finish. It's really quick and is over in a flash. I recommend the Buffer to anyone with cats. It is way more humane than de-clawing. I have never ordered refills, so don't know if they are available or not, but will find out soon. I hope I can find the right ones because I love the Buffer.

I bought this for my two cats. One hates getting his claws trimmed, the other is rather indifferent towards it. I tried it out on the more agreeable feline and he got really p%ssed off at me. I then tried it on my own nail to test it and it felt like it was going to rip my nail off, no wonder he was irritated. The device also comes with little instruction, leaving a lot of the claw grinding up to trial and error.

Works well. Not too loud. I have 2 Jack Russell puppies (7 months) and they did great. At first they were frightened of it. But I held them tight, told them it was okay and they settled down. After the first paw, they looked like they were enjoying the process (honestly, I think it was the snuggling they enjoyed).

The button that pushes in to make the peti buffer work stopped working. I took it apart to find that there was a soldered connection that had snapped. Very irritated as I had one before and did not have this problem. I think this seller is selling mfg seconds.

It was obvious that the filing was very painful for the cat. We had to hold her real tight as the normally docile cat violently tried to break free. For the price, it did the job although not to our liking (or that of our cat)

This item is not quiet as advertised. It scares my animals and after having to hold them down to try to file their nails I found out that it doesn't even work well.
