PET TIP - Cats, even those declawed in the front, need regular nail inspections on at least a monthly basis. Overlong cat nails begin to curl and cannot be completely retracted. This can cause the cat to become hooked to carpeting or other fabrics by a toenail, sometimes resulting in nail loss as well as destruction to your clothing and household items. Those ultra-sharp nails, if curled around a paw pad, can slice deeply and actually grow into the pad, resulting in a puncture and possible infection. If the nails look like fish hooks, you know it is time for a trim. We can trim your cat's nails at Green Acres or we can show you the tools you'll need and how to do it yourself at home.
You can find more information on dogs and cats at our website, www.greenacreskennel.com or at the Green Acres Kennel Shop FaceBook page.
