    Video Resource: Sanctuary Hoof Tool Maintenance

    A still from the Video Resource below showing a hoof trimmer being filed down

    If you care for residents with hooves at your animal sanctuary, you likely are well-acquainted with hoof nippers (also sometimes known as hoof trimmers) and shears. If you’ve been doing this care for a while, you have likely learned how ineffective even the best nippers and trimmers can get over time!

    Each Video Resource below covers each step involved in repairing and sharpening these critical tools at your sanctuary, including the pitfalls to avoid!
