The most common blades used for the body of thin to medium hair, straight hair dogs, might be a 10 blade.
For slightly matted hair you might use a 5 or 5FC blade.
For very matted hair or very thick and heavy coats, you might use a 7 or 7FC blade.
For dogs’ pads, you might use a 15 to 5 /8″ Wide blade
For legs, you might use a 3¾FC, 5 /8″HT, ¾”HT, Combs or Scissors
For feet (except poodles), beards, mustaches and furnishings, you might use Combs or Scissors
For specific dog breeds, you might use specific blades for certain coat styles. Two useful PDF guides from Andis on grooming specific breeds can be found by Googling ‘Andis Grooming Chart’, and for example ‘Andis Poodle Grooming Guide’ (or the name of the breed like spaniel, poodle, terrier etc.) you want to groom.

What Pet Clippers Are The Andis CeramicEdge Blades Compatible With?
They fit detachable blade clippers like the Andis Models AG, AGP, AGR+, AGCL, AGRC and MBG models – and subsequent models like the AGC2.
One example of one of these pet clippers with compatibility is the Andis UltraEdge Super 2-Speed Detachable Blade Professional Animal/Dog Grooming Clipper (AGC2).
Although, it’s a good idea to check the product information of the clipper prior to buying to make sure future models are compatible specifically with the CeramicEdge blades.
These blades also fit the Oster A5 and most detachable type clippers.

Andis CeramicEdge Blade Care
Andis offers two main products for blade care:
- Andis Cool Care Plus Clipper Blade Cleaner (on Amazon) – acts as a coolant, disinfectant, lubricant and cleaner
- Andis Blade Care Plus Dip Jar, 16 oz (on Amazon) – cools, deodorizes, lubricates, cleans, prevents rust and decontaminates blades
Andis CeramicEdge Blade Heating & Cooling
Some clipper blades become hot when you use them continuously for longer periods.
You can either use coolant, or some people buy a backup of the same blade and interchange/rotate them so one blade can cool down while they are using the other.
