Cost of cat nail trim?

I'm just taking a poll of the price people are paying for getting their cats' nails trimmed at their vet. Previously I've paid $18 at my regular vet office to have a technician trim nails on all 4 paws. Today I was told they're adding a fee for the technician's time, which will raise the cost to $30. I'm confused by this as I'm not sure what I was paying for before, if not the technicians time.

I'm just taking a poll of the price people are paying for getting their cats' nails trimmed at their vet. Previously I've paid $18 at my regular vet office to have a technician trim nails on all 4 paws. Today I was told they're adding a fee for the technician's time, which will raise the cost to $30. I'm confused by this as I'm not sure what I was paying for before, if not the technicians time.
Anyway, (before I get my knickers in too much of a knot over this!) I'd like to understand if this new price is actually the going rate? Maybe $18 was a steal? Veterinarian websites don't tend to list a price for this as it's a minor service.
BTW - I don't want to take kitty to a pet store for the trim (I know they are cheaper).
Thanks!

  • You can trim your cat's claws for free with a pair of fingernail clippers.

  • I would recommend putting a sock on the cat's head before trimming. While the cat is trying to figure out what happened you could be done with all the front nails. I am serious.

Attempted mugging this morning.

At 4am I was walking south on Sheffield towards Diversey. About 1.5 blocks north of Diversey I noticed a man crossing the street diagonally and keeping pace with my steps.

At 4am I was walking south on Sheffield towards Diversey. About 1.5 blocks north of Diversey I noticed a man crossing the street diagonally and keeping pace with my steps. As he came closer I stopped and he stopped. I asked him to keep his distance but he started walking towards me. At that point I pulled a knife and turned around to find his accomplice about 7ft away, sneaking from behind. I slashed at the second man and yelled at him. After closing a couple of feet between the second man they were spooked and both ran. Once they were leaving I ran around the block as fast as I could and reported it to the police. The first man was in his mid twenties, about 5'9", black with tight short dreads and a red jacket. The second man was closer to 6"1", mid twenties, black with a black jacket with his hood up. It seemed like he had closer cropped hair (not quite shaved) but again he had a hood on and everything happened very fast. I'm lucky I escaped that situation without harm. I am posting here to let people know to keep an eye out and am not interested in discussing the validity of my response to the situation. Stay safe folks!

    Does spending more money on a swank gym membership translate to more calories burned? We're not convinced that fitness needs to cost more than the price of a decent pair of athletic shoes and the time it takes to do pushups and burpies until we puke.
