Did you know that it’s now illegal to declaw cats in New York State? Here at Pine Woods Animal Hospital, we offer a stylish and humane alternative. Soft Paws are plastic caps that cover your cat’s nails and will prevent them from damaging the objects they scratch. The caps are placed on the nail with a little glue and will need to be reapplied monthly as the nail naturally sheds. Soft Paws comes in many fashionable colors that will make your cat’s toes shine.
