Nail Cap Size Chart

To test nail caps, try a cap on first without the adhesive. If it looks too big, don’t glue it on. The nail cap should fit snugly, like a glove.



 Kitten - Less than 6 months old

These will fit most kittens by the time they reach the age of 16 weeks (4 months). Some kittens can wear them as early as age 12 weeks (3 months).

Small - Approximately 6 months old — Approximately 6-8 pounds

Some kittens at 5 months may need the small size if they are growing fast or are large-breed cats. Small-boned adult cats often wear the small size. If your cat seems smaller than an average full-grown cat, choose small.

Medium - Approximately 9-13 pounds

Most adult average size cats wear medium.

Large - Approximately 14 pounds and up

Very large-boned and large-breed cats wear large
