Cat Grooming Suggestions

A happy cat is a clean cat, and we can help! From nail trimming to bathing, a little upkeep goes a long way. Continue reading to learn how to maintain your cat’s eyes, ears, teeth, skin, and hair healthy and clean. Please keep in mind that some cats dislike being groomed. If your cat resists grooming and there is a risk of damage to your cat or yourself, please schedule an appointment with a professional groomer or a veterinarian to have your cat trimmed.

Skin and Fur Care

Bathing Your Cat

Your fussy feline is well-equipped to handle her own hair care needs, thanks to her built-in grooming equipment (tongue and teeth). However, if she is really unclean or gets into something sticky or stinky, you may need to bathe her. Follow these techniques to reduce stress and maximise efficiency.

Cleaning Your Cat’s Fur

Brushing your cat’s coat not only eliminates filth, oil, and dead hair, but it also helps to remove skin flakes and increases blood circulation, enhancing her skin’s general condition. One or two brushings every week can help kitty maintain her healthy sheen, and frequent appointments will be especially advantageous when your cat ages and is no longer able to groom herself as scrupulously.

Skin Problems

The state of your cat’s skin reflects her general health. When your cat has a skin condition, he or she may scratch, chew, and/or lick excessively. External parasites and allergies, as well as seasonal changes and stress, or a combination of these, may be damaging your cat’s skin and should be checked. One of the most common reasons pet parents seek veterinarian care is for skin issues.

Shedding

Shedding is the natural process of a cat removing dead hair. Indoor cats may shed all year. Grooming your cat on a regular basis and cleaning hair from your home should help to reduce the annoyance of shedding. However, if you observe bald patches in your cat’s fur or considerable hair loss, the underlying reason may be a health issue that should be checked by a veterinarian.

Nail Treatment

Does your cat vanish when the clippers come out? Is it necessary to cover her in a towel before giving her a manicure? To help your cat calm while you trim, follow these tips.

Dental Care

Your cat need clean, sharp teeth as well as healthy gums. Damage to the tongue, teeth, palate, and gums can result in a variety of health problems for cats, but these can be avoided with frequent home check-ups and plain old-fashioned brushing.
