    • I had the same problem with my now dead lady cat. I trimmed the claw. It was difficult and she complained bitterly but it removed the discomfort and the paw pad healed on its own. You will two people to do this. One to hold your cat (use towels perhaps) and the other to trim the claw. It will need the correct tool. Be precise and careful. Ask your vet.

      As for pain meds, I’d ring up your vet and ask because giving pain killers to cats is tricky. I would not do it without advice and don’t give Metacam as it causes kidney damage. Good luck and sorry this is so short but the advice I believe is correct.

  3. great info. . . I constantly monitor the behaviors of my kitties — especially my seniors. . . should I notice anything unusual or different about them, I contact my vet. . . ♥♥♥
