Muffin, who had nail caps on, became wobbly. She was falling over and limping. Even though her nails were being trimmed, some of Muffin’s nails got embedded in her paw pads because the caps wouldn't come off.
The vet recommended emergency surgery to remove the nail caps so Muffin’s nails wouldn’t cause an infection or more discomfort and pain.
Muffin's mom, Jessica, heard of Phinney’s, applied for assistance and qualified. And now free from the pesky nail caps, Muffin is again doing great.
Jessica said Phinney’s was a tremendous help to them both, and that she can tell Muffin is thankful for the generous donations that made it possible for her cat to get the care she needed.
Muffin has been “very affectionate” since she’s been on the mend, Jessica adds. “She used to sleep where no one could ever see her. Now she’s all over everyone. She’s better than ever, I can tell you she certainly says a big thank you!”
