Trimming Your Cat’s Nails

Trim your cat’s nails regularly to keep them from catching and injuring her feet. Short nails also cause less damage to your belongings or yourself. Start trimming your cat’s nails when she is young so it becomes routine. Handle your cat’s feet and nails so she becomes accustomed to your touch. When you are ready to trim your cat’s nails, grasp her foot and press on the pads to extend the nails. Use a pet-safe clipper to trim the nails a little at a time while avoiding the quick. The quick is the blood and nerve supply to the nails and will bleed and hurt if nicked. Continue nail by nail as long as your cat will allow trimming. Don’t punish or yell at your cat if she resists. Just try another time. Eventually you’ll get all the nails trimmed. For more information, contact your most recommended vet clinic Greenbrae CA.
