Does your cat need grooming or clipping?

Every cat has different fur just like we have different hair types. Fur is made up of a long over-coat strand of fur and a shorter undercoat strand (usuallly more than 1). It is the undercoat fur strand that tends to cause knots and matting. So some cats will have recurring problems especially if they have long fur or a thick coat.

Problems than can occur are the development of matted knots - these clumps of heavily matted fur should be clipped away.  Underneath the skin can become irritated and infections can occur.  Your cat will be uncomfortable when it has matted fur.

At Just for Cats we can help by grooming or clipping their fur. We can clip all or part of your cat, whatever is required. Clipping and grooming is done with or without sedation - whatever is best for your cat, always carried out in a quiet environment so your cat remains relaxed.  Any procedure done without sedation, we prefer the owner to stay to assist with holding and calming the cat.

A general vet check over is included in all grooming and clipping.  Call 0438 938 610 or 9729 3500 for an appointment today.
