1 post in this topic

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Unlike human facial hair, the whiskers sprouting from your dog’s or cat’s face serve a very important function and should never be trimmed or cut
  • Dog and cat whiskers, aka vibrissae, are sensory organs that transmit important information to your pet’s brain; whisker trims are the equivalent of temporary amputations
  • Cats may experience bowl or dish aversion from food or water bowls that are too small or deep, causing the whiskers to rub against the sides of the bowl during eating or drinking
