Paws & Jaws: Protecting the Bits that Matter

Monday, September 04, 2017

Dogs and cats are some of the most popular pets in the World, with a total of around 16 million of these animals making their home in the US alone. These animals are so popular because they work so well as pets. The reflect human moods and emotions very well, and they are relatively easy to communicate with. When thinking about your pet, though, it’s unlikely that you consider two very important parts; their teeth and their claws. To both a cat and a dog, these body parts are extremely important. To help you out, this post will be going through some of the ways you can protect the ones on your pets.



Your dog will use its claws for a huge variety of tasks. When they are outside, they will use this part of their body to dig and play. Along with this, though, they also use their claws for grooming, grip when walking or running, and even for mating. Without them, life would be very hard for your pooch. To make sure they are kept in prime condition, you should have them clipped regularly to make sure they're not too long. Along with this, you could also look for dog supplements to make their claws stronger.


For a dog, their teeth are much more important than their claws, as they use this part of their body for almost everything they do. A dog’s mouth will often play a similar role to a human hand, being used to carry things gently. Along with this, they also need their teeth to chew and play. You can find the best dog dental chews with just a little bit of research around the Internet. But, it could be worth talking to your vet for help, too.



Cats use their claws much differently than dogs and rely on them for the bulk of their movement. Cats use their claws to climb, run, play, fight, and even to solve very small problems. Without this part of their body, their life would be very difficult, as they would be able to live like a normal cat. Cats which have had their claws completely removed often struggle to get used to it. Instead, it’s better to keep claws trimmed, while also giving them food like fish to keep them strong.


Most animals use their teeth for very similar jobs. But, as cats have such specialised teeth, it can be hard for them to eat if they have a couple missing. Looking after a cat’s teeth is similar to a dog’s. By giving them dry food and treats designed to clean their teeth, you’ll start to make a difference. But, along with this, you should also consider taking them to the vets once in awhile to get their teeth cleaned professionally.

This post should give you an idea of the different jobs and roles the claws and teeth your pets have play. For both dogs and cats, these body parts are critical to their way of life. But, other pets will also suffer if you let this part of their body fall to ruin. Instead, it’s much better to do a little bit of work.
