Cat's claw
My cat's claw grew completely around so now it almost looks like a half circle.  If I take him to the vet can they cut it or would it require surgery?

The vet should be able to cut the toenail as long as it hasn't grown in to the cats foot.  You can also prevent this from happening again by trimming your cats nails at home.  The cat might be grumpy the first few times but they do get used to it.

I agree with furmomof5's comment. Your cat should definitely be seen by
a vet who will determine how best to help your cat's toenail issue.
My husband trims our cat's toenails. Sammie doesn't really like it, but
he lets my husband trim them when needed. They do get used to the
claw trimming. My sister has four furbabies and she trims all their toenails
on a regualr basis. I believe she gives them a little treat as a reward for
behaving nicely when they having their " toes done" as my sister calls it.
Good luck. Eve :)

After the vet has sorted it maybe think about getting a scratch post as this will help to keep the claws trim.
