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)

I feel extremely confident going to Carlson Animal Hospital. I do not believe there is another doctor(s) who could provide the service they provide. I can call anytime and receive any and all information needed. They reassure me in uncomfortable situations and don’t waste my money. We are on very satisfied. Time and time again the doctors have gone over and above to what is needed.
