Besides putting a brick under their water - is there any way I can help my pigs keep their claws short?

Also, does anyone know if it's ok for me to put a chunk of eucalyptus wood in their cage? We have lots of eucalyptus trees around and I thought a chunk of wood would help but I am a bit worried that the oil in the wood may be harmful to them. Any ideas?

Thanks!! :)

You could always clip their nails, I don't know about the leaves.

Sorry, I can't answer about the wood, but there really isn't any other way I've heard of to keep their nails short other than the bricks and the clipping. That's what I do. Does anyone else know of anything?

Ok Thanks :) I think I'll just clip them and leave it at that.
