When we adopted our cat Atantis, we didn’t realize that he had three ingrown nails. We noticed a slight limp when he walked. I checked his nails and initially found one curved in toward the paw pad. I took him to the vet and they discover two more. Ingrown nails can cause your cat pain and mobility problems.

So how often should your cats nails be trimmed. Here’s the answer from PetMD.

Overgrown nails become curved and don’t retract completely. You will know if your cat’s nails have grown too long if your cat gets their nails stuck in carpets or other soft surfaces, or if your cat can no longer retract her nails.

Severely overgrown and curved nails can grow into the footpad, causing significant pain and mobility problems. Therefore, it is very important to keep your cat’s nails short. Cat should have their nails trimmed every 10 days to 2 weeks so that they do not get to this point.
