I am bringing home 2 almost 4 month old little girls on either Thursday or friday and they have little spikes that are too big to burn. The spikes are a little over an inch so this is beyond my ability and will hand this one off to the vet. With the small spikes will he be able to just clip the spikes off and burn or will he have to do the scoop method? The clip and burn will be the best for my stomach since I will be there with them. With this method is there a greater chance of scurs? TIA for all replies.
