Nail trims can be very stressful for some animals. Here at Halifax Veterinary Hospital, we emphasis low-stress techniques on making these experiences more positive. We often start with a lot of treats, which can help the animal associate nail trims with a positive stimulus.
Most cats have 18 toes; five toes on each of their front feet, and four on the back. My cat, Mandy Pawtinkin, is blessed with 22 toes. She has a congenital physical anomaly called polydactyly (Greek for ‘many digits’). It is a genetic mutation that causes cats to be born with more than the usual number of toes on one or more of its paws.
We are happy to welcome back you back inside our hospital! We no longer have any restrictions on capacity, but masks are still required if you'd like to come inside. We thank you for your understanding and compliance.
