Roki grew up on wooden floors and has perfectly straight feet. We have only one medium sized rug in living room. I trim fur on his paws at least once a month. He will definitely have better grip on the floor without fur. All kinds of stuff can stick to paw fur like burrs, chewing gum (awfull), small twigs and dried leaves, pieces of fine wire (I found that in Roki's paw ten days ago)... Result is irritation, even infection.
So I do routine pawdicure - trim hair around each finger and big pad, trim between fingers, clip nails, and massage paw pads and skin between pads with paw protection balm ( I put it at least two times during the week, especially in the winter). Little piggie really enjoys paw massage. Who wouldn't?
