Why Do You Need to Groom Cats?
Most cats are very good at keeping themselves clean and do not need to be bathed. However, they do sometimes need help with matted hair and nail trimming. If they suffer from hairballs, clipping their hair short is very helpful. Owners with allergies find that keeping the fur clipped short helps too.
At Caygeon Cats & Canines Grooming, we strongly recommend that cat owners bring their feline friends to us as early as possible. The younger a kitten is when they reach us, the better they will adapt to the routine of nail trims, brushing, combing, and clipping.
Why Is it Important to Treat Your Pets to Regular Nail Care Treatments?
Failing to have the nails of your pet clipped and maintained correctly could prove extremely costly for your home. Wooden floors, freshly painted walls or wooden chair and table legs could all become a playground for a cat, dog or even rabbit with excessively long nails. So, to ensure the upkeep of your home, you need to treat your pet to regular nail care treatments from us.
That being said, as bad as long nails are for your home, they are a lot worse for your pet. Failing to cut, your pet’s nails can result in injuries ranging from torn nails to arthritis. This is particularly true for dogs’ nails as they are curved, so if they grow too long they can dig into their paw pads and cause extreme pain. To avoid inflicting this level of pain on your pet, make sure that their nails are treated regularly. The average dog or cat can benefit from having nails trimmed about every two months.
