How To Trim My Cat’s Nails?

How To Trim My Cat’s Nails?

How To Trim Your Cat’s Nails? It’s necessary to know that, your cat’s nails are usually developing a few nails. Actually growing too long creates a problem. And, for example, indoor cats playing on the carpet can catch their nails and tear them. It results in bleeding or possible injury.

Occasionally have had owners bring their cat to the hospital. Because of infection on one or more of the toes. What actually happened is that the nails grew so long they curved into the pad and created an infection that can be very painful and possibly require medications such as antibiotics to heal naturally. 

We can help avoid these types of problems by learning a safe and proper way to trim your cat’s nails too. First, you’ll need a pair of nail trimmers. There are many types available, both large and small for cats. I prefer a smaller pair. It is a good idea to have the styptic powder in case you accidentally cut the nail too short and make it bleed. Once you have your supplies, you’ll want to find a comfortable place getting your cat used to having their feet handled will make the procedure easier for both of you.

How many friends or family members assist you in holding is always helpful. Some cats may need to be wrapped in a towel or small blanket. The easiest way to expose your cats.  Now is to press on the pad this will extend. The base of the nail is called the quick and contains blood vessels and nerves cutting into the area is painful. And can cause bleeding for these reasons.

Identified proper place for Trim

We want to avoid this area once you have identified the proper place to trim. It is easy for those who only have human nail clippers will need to turn it sideways to fit the nail after the nails are trimmed. You may want to use a small file to smooth the edges. Always remember to praise your cat or give a small treat to help create a positive experience.

Always recommend that you make an appointment with your veterinarian to learn a technique specifically for your cat.
