Me and my Mom were doing Spikes nails and before we were done we started to hear Spikes heart beat :eek: We let him go, he is now in his cage looking all sleepy and shaking and having a nap. I really hope his heart will be ok. So much for doing his nails myself :( I really did not want to take him in to get his nails done because that would expose him to other birds who may be sick. Also they use the same tool for all the birds and I don't think they clean it between each bird. But I would rather him not have a heart attack. So much for grooming Spike myself. Iam going to leave him alone for an hour and take him out later to see how he is.

i've never had to trim my birds nails, when I got Casper (budgie) her nails were way long and kept getting caught in the carpet, I use the "pedi perch" and swing, within 2 or 3 days her nails were fine and the same length as every one else

I use these kind of Perches, and the swings with the same "perch" on them

I also have one the filing part is only one 2 sides and its smooth down the center where their feet would be.

Spike is fine :D I also now know that he is a really good drama queen :p He does have a sandy perch but it is not really keeping his nails dull. Just to actually hear his heart beating so hard and fast. It was too scary. I though he might have had a heart attack :eek: When triming nails you are not supposed to hear their heart beat. Next time Iam just going to bring him in and have it done. They have a dremel so it goes really fast.
