       It’s very important to cut your cat’s nails regularly, because long nails can not only scratch the furniture at home, but also hurt people easily. Especially if you have children at home. There is also a point is that the cat’s fingernail fracture or nail into the meat pad (under the foot of the meat thicker part) can lead to suppuration and so on.

       The front paw is once every two weeks, and the back claw is once every 3-4 weeks. The special nail clippers are used to trim the front paw. First put the cat on the knee and hold it from the back. If it’s a fierce cat, it’s better to put on a headgear. Gently squeeze the skin behind the base of the nail and the nail will stick out. Cut off the sharp part of the front by 1-2 mm. There are blood vessels passing through the pink part of the nail heel, so don’t hurt it. If which time nails cut too close to the meat, cats will hate to cut nails after. In order to avoid this kind of situation, it is better to ask the veterinarian to help cut it for the first time, and ask how much to cut.

       The specific nail cutting method: when cutting, you can sit or squat, put the cat on both legs, with the cat’s head forward, gently clip the cat’s body with both legs. Then lift the cat’s paw with one hand, gently press the claws with the two fingers of food and thumb to push out the cat nail, and use the other hand to hold the nail knife to cut the front end less. Be careful to see that there are dark blood vessels in the part near the flesh of the cat nail. It will hurt very much if you cut it. It will bleed because a piece of meat has been cut off. The location of blood vessels may be deep or shallow. If cats often grind their claws, the blood vessels will be more hidden. If cats don’t often walk outside, the blood vessels will be close to the nail tip and must not be cut to the blood line.

       Tool selection: pet nail clippers (cat’s) and dog’s nail clippers are too large to operate. Do not use scissors or human nail clippers, because cat’s claw nails are also layer by layer. It’s very easy to cause cat’s claw nail to be broken (we often say it’s approved), even bleeding, wound inflammation and so on.

       Nail cutting angle: in the process of trimming, the cat’s nails should be perpendicular to the nail clippers as much as possible, so as to avoid cutting nails at random angle, causing nail fragmentation and infection.

       Number of cuts: cat’s front paw has 5 nails, 4 in front and 1 in side, which is called accessory toe

       A cat has only four nails on its hind paw

       So there are 18 in total. Don’t miss it!

       If your cat doesn’t often go to the pet store to take a bath, then you should pay attention to regularly cutting the cat’s nails.

       Before cutting nails for your pet cat, you should prepare: special nail clipper for cat, Xiaoyang water, cotton wool, hemostatic agent, cotton cloth, Elizabethan circle and nail file.

       The specific operation methods are as follows:

       1. Put the cat on her lap and gently stroke its head to make them quiet.

       6. When the nail is cut, the sole hair should be cut, and the heel pad should be arranged horizontally. If it is too long, the pet cat will slide down. If it is too short, the foot wall will be easily stabbed by hard objects.

       7. After cutting the nails, use the nail file to file the nails one by one.

       You can observe the cat’s paws under the light. First, the outermost layer is transparent and can be cut; next to the transparent one, it is white, opaque, and it’s better not to cut it; then the inside is pink, and the part must not be cut.

       It’s better to cut your nails according to the cat’s will. Don’t increase the cat’s unnecessary fear like fighting. At ordinary times, strengthen emotional contact and cultivate trust.

       It’s better to cut less than to cut more. You can take her paw to light, the pink part in the middle must not be cut, and the white translucent part around it should not be touched. Only the tip of the claw has a small transparent part (no more than 1.5mm), which can be cut. The scissors had better be sharp, so as not to cut the kitten’s nails. It’s also very painful.
