Q: Can I cut my cat’s nails with a set of human nail clippers?
A: While it is not dangerous to use a human nail cutter it may cause the nails to split. This can make your job more difficult and may be painful for your cat.
All pet stores carry pet nail clippers. Investing in a good pair can save you a lot of time and money down the road. Be sure to purchase some styptic powder to cauterize the nail in case it is cut too short.
If you have questions about your pet’s health, you can submit them to Dr. Lauren at firstname.lastname@example.org.
