Cat Grooming – Pet Grooming
Most cats do not need sedation and we can groom and clip the cat in the presence of the owner who can help to keep their cat calm. We have a large amount of success clipping cats without sedation and we feel it is better for the cat in the long run and much prefer to groom cats without sedation when possible. Some cats may need to be sedated for matts to be removed. If a cat needs sedation then the local vet is asked to give the sedation. Once the cat is sedated, we will then clip and bath the cat and then the vet reverses the sedation. In this case, two costs are involved one for the salon and one for the vet.
Fleas are a constant problem especially in summer or when the weather is warm and humid. In our salon we combat fleas by using Capstar and Frontline spray. Experience has taught us that animals with fleas are best washed in a soothing shampoo and conditioner so that the skin is not irritated and given a Capstar to kill the fleas. Capstar is a short acting remedy and only lasts for nine hours during which time owners can talk to their vet and use a much longer acting remedy to kill the fleas. Please remember that each flea can lay up two thousand eggs so it is essential to sterilize the eggs as well as get rid of the fleas if you wish to never have fleas again. We do not sell flea products as only your vet knows your pet’s history and can advise you on the best flea treatment suitable for your pet.
