Right pawed or left pawed? Which is your pet’s preference?

Is your cat or dog left-handed or right-handed? What can that tell you about his/her behavior and health?

Our handedness is a part of our identity.  For those of you lefties who make up approximately 10% of the population, your handedness can be a point of pride and a source of frustration, having to live in a world designed for right-handed people.  It is suggested that your handedness may even be linked to certain personality traits.  But have you ever thought about whether your furry friends might have a paw preference? (https://www.carlsonanimalhospitals.com/blog/2018/08/right-pawed-or-l…-pets-preference)
