Cat Has a Piece of Claw Stuck Between Teeth

My 13 year old cat was constantly licking her lips so I looked and there is a small piece of her claw stuck in between her teeth. What do I do or will it dislodge on its own? I've tried pulling it out, but she doesn't sit very still and I'm afraid of breaking her teeth.

Ouchies!! Please have the vet look at this. Usually they have to put them under anesthesia to remove this. It is the safest way for all.

Post back with an update! Prayers for healing. Poor kitty!

Your cat should see a vet.If not try pulling the claw with tweezers or floss between the cats teeth where the claw is stuck.

I would definitely take her to the vet. Both the sharp edges and particles trapped in the claw could cause an infection in her gums.

I love DIY anytime it's possible but if you are still having this problem I would seek help with a vet. Visits are expensive but this could get infected and that would be even more costly to doctor.

She really needs to see a vet and be put to sleep in order to remove this piece of claw that is stuck between her teeth. it should like it is lodged in there and it will not come out on its own.
