How to trim a cat’s nails
To trim your cat’s nails, take a claw trimmer to the ends of their claws, starting with their front paws. Avoid cutting near the nerve endings to prevent bleeding.
Depending on how active your cat is, we recommending getting their nails trimmed every 4 to 6 weeks. At this rate, it’s easier to keep their nails short which reduces discomfort and injury. You should start getting your cat used to nail trims when they’re around 2 or 3 months old.
To cut your pet’s nails properly, they should be calm and relaxed. That’s why it’s best to take your pet to a professional groomer. Our expert staff has all the necessary skills to safely trim your cat’s nails.
Why does my cat need haircuts?
Trimming your cat’s fur is a good idea if their coat is too fluffy or they’re shedding excessively. You should regularly brush long-haired cats to prevent hairballs and tangles.
Haircuts may be stressful for you cat, which is why it’s a good idea to visit a professional groomer. Our staff and salon are fully equipped to offer your cat personalized and professional fur trimming/shaving.
Why should I clean my cat’s ears?
Ear infections in cats increase the amount of earwax and cellular debris in the ear canals, which leads to bacteria and yeast growth. Ear cleanings get rid of buildup to prevent fungal and bacterial infections.
