Wheekly Guinea Pig Help...Clipping Guinea Pig Nails

Looks like it's time for another edition of Wheekly Guinea Pig Help! A few days ago, the humans gave me a "paw-dicure". I think the human version is called a manicure. Anyway, let's get started!

Time for a paw-dicure!
The humans have special nail-clippers that they use. You can usually buy them at your local pet store.
Be careful, human!
We guinea pigs have bloodlines in our nails, meaning that if you clip our nails too far, then they start bleeding. I have clear nails, so you can easily see my bloodline. Olympia and Sandy have a few dark nails, which you have to be careful with because you can't see the bloodline very easily.
All done!
Thankfully, it didn't take too long. Afterwards, it was easier to walk, too!
