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.
