Trimming Your Cat's Nails

You need to trim your cat’s nails often so she doesn’t injure them by getting caught in fabric such the sofa, carpeting or drapes. Short nails also diminishes the pain when your cat kneads your lap and can deter her from clawing your belongings. Start trimming your cat’s nails when she is young so this grooming task becomes routine. Act quickly and efficiently when you cut your cat’s nails. Grasp a paw and press on the pads so the nails extend. Trim the nails a little at a time while avoiding the quick. The quick is the nerve and blood supply to the nail and it will hurt and bleed if nicked. Keep trimming as long as your cat will tolerate it. You may have to try another time if your cat resists. Never yell at your cat or punish her or she will resist even more the next time. Learn more from your vet care Las Vegas, NV.
