Yes the vet will do it for you. I used to pay £10 for mine to be done but I get them done for nothing now as i am on a payment plan.

She might let the vet or might not,maybe she get scared though and just let them do them and be out of there.
I take my budgie for his beak and it was £3 last time,so cats nails will be more,maybe £10-15.

Any chance a vet could amputate my cats paws to stop the ******s pulling the carpet and couch to pieces??

They are annoying her when she walks, so just want them cut no matter what the cost really. How often will she need them done? Its the first time in 13yrs!

How mean. You can get behavior spray for cats. it's citrus scented and it helps stop them scratching where it isn't wanted. Then you can get spray cat nip and put that on their scratching post.

Has she just stopped using the scratching post? or recently become a house cat? I don't have my cats done very often at all and she's a house cat. I just check them over now and then. I maybe have them done twice a year, however she does use her post and my door mat! lol

She's always been an indoor cat but has stopped using the carpet and furniture as nail cutters! I can only think its due to her age. We have tried to get her to use a scratching post with the help of catnip but she aint interested.

I think you can buy it in pet shops but if you look at ebay item no: 380075148471 thats what I use. Then I spray catnip 310129551881 where I do want her to scratch. seems to work fine for me.

Maybe thats the way forward!

we cut ours with this pair of cat nail cutter (scissor type) that has a safety lock.

she just moans a little but knows she gets a treat later, we usually do it (the OH and i), one holds the cat and one paw, the other holds the scissors and holds the paw to extend her nails.

I used to swaddle mine in a towel not easy but it did the job. I just have it done at the vets now though.

Well I'm sure they be able to cos they should know how to hold the cat,so between the nurse and the vet,the job should be done but who knows,cats do scratch.
If they so much bother to her the nails,and the vet can't get them done without them being scratched then they can sedate the cat or something for a couple mins while they done.

My cat has "vicious" marked on his notes and anything that needs doing I have to be on hand. They even tried to muzzle him once but he attacked them so I had to hold him while they sedated him, he's a real sweety to me although he has been known to attack a district nurse and the Sky man!!!
Needless to say his claws stay long.

Just got back from vet. He managed to cut her back nails but could not get near her front claws! She was going balistic! Got to take her back to be sedated so he can finish what he started. Her ears need a good clean as well, so he will do them the same time.
