Why Is It Imporrtant To Look After Your Cats Claws?
Looking after your cats’ claws is an important part of keeping them happy and healthy. Some cats that spend most of their time outdoors may need less clipping, but particularly older or less active cats should have regular claw care.
Cat nail clippers are an essential part of this routine, and if you need any help learning how to clip your cats’ claws for the first time, or have a new cat who you haven’t trimmed before, please take some advice from your vet or groomer to make sure you understand the right technique!
Cat claw clippers should make cutting your cats nails easy and comfortable for your cat. Non-slip handles are perfect to make sure you don’t make any mistakes, and grooved blades help ensure that the angle is correct and only the smaller outer portion of the claw is quickly timed away.
Whilst cat’s nails do wear down with regular scratching, climbing and playing, a cat nail trimmer providers a little extra help. Overgrown claws can cause pain and discomfort, so it is best to keep on top of this to make sure your kittie can play happily as much as they like!
If your cat isn’t as active as you would like them to be, or you find yourself using your cat nail clippers more often than you would like, consider choosing a cat scratcher or scratching post for them. Hanging scratchers make this possible for the smallest of spaces, and provides a natural way for your moggie to keep their claws down and prevent overgrowing, whilst also encouraging active play.
Outdoor cats are likely to need less trimming, but their claws and paws must be kept healthy since they rely on them for climbing, hunting, and even to protect themselves if they live in a busy feline neighbourhood! Trimming helps prevent claws from piercing the paw pad which can even cause infection, so investing in a great pair of cat claw clippers is a wise purchase for both the happiness of your favourite feline and to prevent any future vet’s bills arising from painful ingrown claws!
