What is the general amount of time it takes a suggie's nails to get long again after they have been clipped?


Sarah is currently a slave to:

Joe <3 - boyfriend
Kasu, Chihiro, Haku, Io - the suggies :bb: :grey: :grey: :rtmo:
Miki :rbridge: You are greatly missed <3

My boys are usually good for a month in between Lucy usually needs hers in 2-3 weeks. I guess some grow a bit faster than normal.

oh goodness! my suggie's nails grow back in like a week! If i go a couple days longer i have gashes all over me from him crawling all over my body! and believe me they hurt! i wish I didn't have to trim them so often, but i dont have a trimmer track for his Wodent yet, but when I do I will *hopefully* not have to trim quite so often.

I clip most of my gliders nails every 2 weeks, but I clip Maia's nails a little more frequently because she is a bra baby and against my skin.

You can see the blood supply in their nail if you have good light, but here is a great site about nail clipping (with pictures to show where to cut!):
