Small: Dogs between 5-10 pounds will usually wear small Soft Paws®.
Medium: Dogs approximately 10-15 pounds usually wear medium Soft Paws®.
Soft Paws® are completely safe, painless, and humane. They do not hurt the dog in any way. Soft Paws® are non-toxic. Even if your dog swallows one, the nail cap will just safely pass through the digestive system.
Yes! Soft Paws® are great for protecting hardwood floors from scratches incurred by a dog's nails. To protect your wood floors, be sure to apply the nail caps to all four paws. The nail covers are also great for protecting other surfaces such as doors, walls, and furniture from scratches. Soft Paws® can even help prevent scratch injuries to people from overzealous canine greetings.
I am so happy with my dog's Soft paws!
My dog Naobi looks so precious in her Soft Paws!
Soft Paws are nail caps that you glue on your dog’s or cat’s nails to prevent them from stratching floors, people, or even themselves. Each kit comes with 40 nail caps and 2 tubes of adhesives. That’s enough for 2 applications if you apply them to all 4 paws or 4 applications if you put them on front paws only. The nail caps stay in place for 4-6 weeks (they should be removed after a maximum of 8 weeks if they haven’t fallen off).After 3 weeks of use, I can now confirm that Soft Paws are amazing! Not only do my dogs tolerate them but they stayed on and required no maintenance.I was curious to see how my dogs would react to Soft Paws. They don’t usually tolerate anything on their paws so I thought they might try to chew them. We followed the instructions carefully, glued them in place, and hoped for the best!*Soft Claws® and Soft Paws® are trademarks for Soft Paws nail caps for cats and dogs of Soft Paws Inc., Lafayette, LA. Patent No. 4,962,731. Made in USA.However, after about 1 week, one of my dogs who is more prone to skin irritation had a reaction around his cuticle (the skin at the very top of the nail). I wasn’t sure what caused it because both the nail cap and the adhesive are non-toxic and shouldn’t cause an allergic reaction and the reaction was only on one paw, around 2 nails (if it were an allergy, you would expect to see the same reaction on all 4 paws). I could see that it was bothering my dog because he would try to lick or chew on his nail cap so I contacted Soft Paws.Whether or not you use Soft Paws® on your cat or dog routinely at home, there is one special situation in which you might decide to use them: while traveling with your pet. There are several ways in which the use of Soft Paws® may benefit you and your pets while you are away from home.
