Veterinary medicine is tough, but grooming aint easy either. Make your favorite veterinary team members life a little easier with one (or all) of these new items.

MiracleCare QuickFinder electronic nail clippers1. Toenail traffic lights

We're not kidding. These nail trimmers-in snazzy blue, purple or green-are perfect for veterinary assistants or new groomers who need some guidance. They flash a “green” light when it's safe to clip, “yellow” when you should be cautiously clipping and “red” when you're going to pass the quick. We don't know how it works-it's the future, alright?

VSSI grooming tub2. Ramp up your baths

Whose job is it to lift big dogs in and out of the bath? That person in your practice probably wants a tub like this, with a telescoping ramp. You can put the nonskid ramp up and down one-handed too. Rambunctious bathers? That 24-inch stainless steel backsplash could keep messes off your walls.

TickEase tick removal device3. Exploding ticks!

We're kidding, they won't explode. But these thin-tipped tweezers are ideal for removing small ticks at one end, and big ticks with the other end's slotted scoop. Then you can put the offending insect in your big “Look at these horrible things, you need flea-tick preventive” jar in your exam room.
