Nail health

Nail health, for your pet's comfort and yours!

It’s natural for a cat to use its claws! Here are 3 suggestions to make your life easier.

TRIM YOUR CAT’S CLAWS

 

 

A scissors-type nail trimmer is ideal.

CREATE A CAT-FRIENDLY ENVIRONMENT

A scratching post to keep your cat from sharpening its claws on your furniture :

  • Covered in rope, carpet or cardboard.
  • At least 3 feet high and with a minimum 3′ x 3′ base.
  • Climbing tree (at least two-tier) or vertical post.

OTHER HELPFUL HINTS

To encourage your cat to use its scratching post :

  • Sprinkle catnip onto the post; most cats find it irresistible !
  • You can combine catnip and a pheromone product.

In the meantime :

  • Nail caps: these little plastic caps fit over your cat’s claws and are a handy way to protect your furniture while your cat adjusts to using its scratching post.
