How It Works
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”.
- 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.
Clips the Tip and Not the Quick
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!
If the blade does appear to approach the quick, contact us and we will replace your Zen Clipper at no cost with a smaller size (there are seven sizes). Likewise if the nail is too big for the size Zen Clipper you purchased we will happily exchange it for a larger size.

Download the Sizing Card
The dots at the bottom are the exact size of each Zen Clipper. Make sure you print actual size, not scale to fit page or otherwise resized. This ensures the dots remain the correct size. By holding the dots near your pet’s nails or by actually poking the nail through the hole you can determine which size Zen Clipper best fits your pet. You can print this in black and white (sometimes called grayscale) to save ink.
Request a Sizing Card
The most certain way of getting the right size is for us to mail you a try-me sizing card – this is a card that has holes precisely cut matching the holes in the various Zen Clippers (the card has all 7 sizes of holes) and is about the size of a postcard.
