I have a miniature three month old goldendoodle whose nails were trimmed at his 9 week vet appointment,. They seem to be growing long again. What nail scissors do you recommend?

"He seems much better today and has had normal poop all day. I am guessing it was from those darn Kong treats which I threw away. I will still mention to vet in Tuesday to make sure it isn’t anything more serious. However he…"
"Also, just as an FYI, he must be closely supervised outdoors. I would keep him on a leash even if you have a fenced yard, to make sure he is not eating or drinking anything out there. And you'll need to pick up his poop immediately to prevent…"
"Okay, so it's very, very common for doodle puppies to come home with giardia. Since giardia has a 10-14 day incubation period, and you can't have had him more than a week (I hope), you wouldn't have seen symptoms til now. This is one…"

I picked them up at the pet store for him this afternoon. He really only ate one as they both broke off inside and he couldn’t get it out.
