Most cats do a pretty good job of keeping themselves clean and well groomed. However, cats with long hair need our help to avoid matted fur and fur balls.
Regular, professional cat grooming can help reduce problems such as:
- Heat stress
- Ticks and parasites
- Unnoticed lumps
- Irritation to the skin and paws
- Painful mats and knots
- Excessive hair shedding
- Fur ball
Why does my cat need regular grooming?
Regular grooming of your cat’s coat is essential for their overall health and wellbeing. Long and medium-haired cats require more regular grooming and sometimes clipping to keep their coats in good condition.
By grooming your cat, you can also control cat hair in the house. Instead of your cat shedding hair wherever they walk, you can immediately dispose of groomed hair. When you groom your cat, you’re in a better position to notice any physical changes including lumps, bumps, or parasites.
Do all cats need grooming?
While all cats can benefit from regular grooming, long-haired cats need grooming more often to keep their coats in good condition. Some may require clipping. Cat clipping can be done at your local Greencross Vet, but depending on your cat’s nature, sometimes sedation may be required. If this is case, your feline friend will be monitored at all times throughout the grooming procedure.
If you feel that your feline friend is too fury, contact your Greencross Vet and enquire about what grooming services they can offer you.
