take her to a vet
I tried unsuccessfully to reply to Fay Keyes. My advice to her is to take her cat to a vet before it is too late.
good advise, use a white nail as a marker for the darker ones since you can't see where the "quick" nerve is. Still would rather use a grinder because you can actually see where the nerve ends. It may seem like a pain but if your pet gets a toenail stuck in something and breaks a toe, that is VERY painfull. Or the toenail can be ripped out because the pet is stressed out. Also very painfull.
My dogs have a mix of light and dark nails. I shine a flash light through them and use a sharpie (silver works best for me) to mark where the quick is. I mark all their nails first then go back and cut. It\'s quicker for me to cut to that mark and less traumatic for my fur babies
For Gods sake Faye you cant see this cat is very sick? Who lets an animal suffer for months with painful bowl movements and diarrhea? Crying because it is so painful? get your cat to a vet before its too late if you really care about your cat. No one should have to tell you this,you should have known the first week it was in distress,that it needed to be seen by a vet.
Faye you need to take your cat to a vet. Its been going on for months ?Whats wrong with this picture? Your cat must be very sick to have painful bowl movements that male her cry. Cripes take that cat to a vet before it dies.
I give my kitty a dose of miralax (cvs brand Purelax much cheaper) stir it in her wet food. She has a problem with painful constipation, also give her pureed carrots & Maalox.As to cutting the cat's nails my cat is too frisky & wild haven't been able to cut them and no Vet will deal with her scratching, bitting and growling. I purchased severa scratching post but don't think they work other to make her nails more sharper. Any more suggestions will be apppreciated. Happy new year & best of luck to all.
If the pet will tolerate it, a dremmel or grinding tool works much better. You can get closer to the "quick" without bleeding and round the nail. The more you do their nails, the more that nerve"quick" will recede. Also good to have styptic powder on hand in case you bleed the nail.
I've learned to lay my small dogs on my lap (they're on their back). This makes it MUCH easier to clip their nails. For the truly difficult dog, I use a second person to feed them peaut butter while I'm clipping their nails.
She needs to see a vet
