I don't know about anybody else, but I always seem to have trouble returning a small animals feet back to normal after inverting them. Today I finally found a simple way to do it without damaging the feet! For all I know this might be the "norm", but I thought I was a genius and wanted to share.

Here is where I usually have trouble



My solution









I hope that this can help somebody else as well.

I have a shop sink and put a little piece of tube or hose on the faucet......same concept as you, but with water.....your way might prevent a jet of H2O squirting in my face! NICE :)

Seems like a good idea. How does it work if you get some small skinning holes in the foot? Seems like i always get at least one small hole in them lol.

I also use water.  Air would work too I would just make sure that you have the pressure turned down.  I could see me forgetting that and blowing off a foot!
