I've done that before, cut too close to the quick. It's upsetting and, with the bleeding, it can freak you out a bit.
Nowadays I use a Dremel grinder with the Peticure cap attachment. The dogs handle it amazingly well, even April who HATES to have her nails done! She used to bite when we tried to clip her nails but with the grinder no more biting.
Pepper will actually lay back on my arm, belly up, while I grind his nails with the other hand. The difference is ME. I am very comfortable with this method.
