  • The package said as their claws grow, they will fall off, but i would like to replace all of them at once in about 4 weeks.

  • they are supposed to pop off as the nails grow out. However, you need to watch them because sometimes they don't and then you have to cut them off

  • 15) What should I do if the Soft Paws® stay on longer than six weeks?

    Normally the nail caps will fall off with the natural growth of the cat's nails. But, some cats (actually very few) don't shed their nails as rapidly as other cats and the nail caps don't fall off on their own. If this occurs, all that needs to be done is to trim the very tip of the nail cap. This will help break the adhesive seal and the nail caps should fall off.

    Please note: It is important to periodically check your cat's nails, i.e. once weekly, to ensure none of the nails have grown too long. Since cats' nails grow in a curved manner, if they grow too long, they will start to curl under the paw pad. If you notice the nail is too long, just trim the tip of the nail cap to remove.
