How To Look After Your Pet’s Paws

Kitten paws Paws up if you love your pet! As a pet owner, you’ll know that it's important to look after your pet's paws. Complete paw care will help to prevent any injuries or discomfort for your pet. This involves keeping nails trimmed, their pads clean and moisturised as well as tidying any excess hair. It’s recommended that you start paw care from a young age and get your pet used to having their paws handled, as this will help you in the future. Read our guide to paw care below.  

Regular Paw Checks

To ensure your pet’s paws are healthy, make sure you check them regularly. You should be looking at the nail length as well as the colour and texture of the pad. If your pet seems to be licking their paws a lot or limping at all, this could be a sign that they need some attention.
