A clean cat is a happy cat, although cats rarely need a bath since they clean themselves, sometimes it does come to the point where you have to intervene and give her a bath yourself. When the time comes for you to bath your cat, you may need special cat shampoo and products. There are cats who will fight the grooming process and who might even hurt you or themselves. In such a case rather make an appointment with a professional groomer or a veterinarian to groom your cat.
Comb and brush your cat regularly, especially if your cat has long hair that knots easily. Brushing your cat not only removes dirt, grease and dead hair from its coat, but it helps to remove skin flakes and it also stimulates blood circulation, improving the overall condition of the skin. One or two brushings per week will help kitty to keep its healthy glow and regular brushing will also help your cat to get used to it, especially when your cat ages and is no longer able to groom so meticulously on its own.
It’s important to give them a good home eye exam just before grooming, in case there are any tearing, crust, cloudiness or inflammation that may indicate a health problem. Damage to the tongue, teeth, palate and gums can be prevented with regular home check-ups and brushings. Examine and clean your cat’s paws and make sure they’re wound-free. Monitoring your kitty’s ears once per week for wax, debris and infection will help those sensitive sonar detectors stay perky and alert to your every move.
Pet Hero stocks a wide variety of shampoos, deodorisers, tools and ear/eye cleaning products that you can use to keep your cat healthy and happy.
