Does our nail grinder also work for cats?

Hello everyone!

This is Zoe from Soft Pet Paws. I've been a vet for the last 13 years and have helped countless of dogs (and other animals) with their nails- whether it's a simple trim or a more serious condition that requires surgery.

Before we continue, I'd like to say that we feel blessed seeing the positive impact our nail grinder is having on your fur babies!

In today's blog post, we're going to answer the 3 most frequent questions we've been getting on our social media.

1. Does this work for cats?

Absolutely. It works like a charm!

Nail grinder for dogs and cats

It also works for rabbits, parrots, turtles and guinea pigs. In general- if your pet has nails that need trimming, our SoftPetPaws grinder can take care of them! :)

2. For how long does the grinding head last?

Each grinding head can last for 3 years or more, depending on how you take care of it.

Don't worry though- you can get a replacement grinding head for much cheaper, so you don't have to buy a new nail grinder. We also have a bundle offer so you can get both with 10% OFF.

3. I walk my dog every day. Why should I trim their nails?

It's very rare that a dog's nails do not require any trimming. Most of the time, owners don't recognize an overgrown nail, or disregard the nail trimming in general, until the nails have grown super long and turned into a bigger problem.

Long nails can turn a sound paw into a splayed foot and reduce traction. They can cause deformed feet and injure the tendons over an extended period. As the long nail hits the ground, the pressure puts force on the foot and leg structure.

Bonus: When are my dog's nails too long?

If your dog's nails are too long, you will hear them clack when the dog walks on hard surfaces. The claws should not protrude over the pad and should not touch the ground when standing.

That's all for now!
