Cat Grooming

We offer bathing of all breeds of cats and utilize appropriate shampoos for the individual pet including medicated baths if necessary.

How often your individual cat needs to be bathed will vary somewhat with its age, lifestyle, type of hair coat, and underlying health status.  Some cats enjoy rubbing their head in decomposing debris, or rolling in objectionable objects, and will need a bath whenever this happens so that it is allowed back into the house! Finally, if your cat has allergies, your veterinarian may prescribe frequent bathing as part of the treatment regime - with some of these cats, daily bathing may be necessary until the problem gets under control.

All cats benefit from regular grooming to remove loose hairs and dead skin cells, to keep the coat free of dirt, debris, and external parasites, and to distribute natural skin oils along the hair shafts.

We offer grooming of your pet to satisfy your wants and based on the experience of our groomer.

Cats with long, silky or curly coats require daily brushing to keep their hair from becoming tangled or matted, especially around the ears, in the armpits, or along the back of the legs. cats with short hair coats may require less frequent brushing. However, daily brushing of any cat that sheds will cut down dramatically on the amount of loose hair and pet dander floating around the home, and will also cut down on the amount of hair that the cat swallows in the course of self-grooming with its tongue.

If you regularly check your cat's coat and skin, you will also have a better chance of detecting any unusual lumps, bumps, or areas of sensitivity on your cat's body at an early stage.

Trimming your cat's nails is not just a part of grooming; it's important for your pet's health as well. You should remember that untrimmed nails can cause a variety of problems including broken nails, which are painful and can bleed profusely.
