Special Application | Hoof clippers

If there is one thing you need from a pair of shears for animal care it is precision. Speed of operation and a clean cut are essential to maintain health. It also means less stress for your sheep and goats at that very stressful moment when you have to clip their hooves. The design of the FELCO 50 hoof clippers reflects all your concerns. Based on the FELCO 7 shears, the lightweight construction, revolving handle and angled head ensure a tool that feels comfortable and natural to use. This will make your hoof clipping easier and more efficient, while blades coated with XYLAN® offer protection against the risk of infections.

Product & Maintenance Tips


It is advisable to clean your tool after each use. If your tool is particularly dirty or subject to rusting after exposure to moisture, do not delay cleaning.


After cleaning, it is advisable to oil the tool so as to protect it from corrosion. The oil will also unjam the tool.

Changing the shock absorber

When the tool closes too abruptly during pruning, and the cushion is in good condition, the shock absorber should be changed.

Changing the thumb catch

When the thumb catch is damaged and loosens when used, even when the screw is readjusted, change it.

Changing the plastic coatings for handles

If the coatings are badly damaged, you can replace them. Soak the coatings for 2 minutes in boiling water - recommended glue: Loctite 415.
