Hi

Taking your own tools would probably be a good idea. Make sure you do not have an active foot infection. They must not cut the nails to short. Check feet carefully for a few afterwards to look for any infection. Warn them if you have any issues with sensation(i.e have known nerve damage) or the circulation
