    – For first time applications, it is recommended to only doing the front paws
    – If your cat does not accept the caps (trying to chew them off) our groomer will return to remove them
    – It is a lot less stressful for the cat to remove caps from 2 paws rather then 4 paws

    keeping regular appointments is recommended to ensure the caps don’t curl under the feet and cause any discomfort
