Whether your cat is strictly confined indoors or is allowed to go outdoors, you should make a habit of checking your pet’s paw on a regular basis. A cat’s curiosity can take him wandering through nooks and crannies in and around the house, and they may end up with blisters, cuts, or splinters on their paws that may require immediate care and attention.
Fur in between the toes of long-haired cats has to be trimmed regularly to prevent dirt and debris from accumulating in the area. Cats that develop irritation and infection in between the toes may lick at the area aggressively and persistently.
Weather extremes can be hard on your pet’s paw pads; don’t let your pet venture outdoors during winter or when it’s very hot to protect his sensitive paws. Regular application of moisturizer on your pet’s paws will also help keep them soft. To know more, click here.
