I can clip, bath or brushout excessive undercoat and oils and remove matting with clipping to let the skin breathe and prevent further matting. Some cats are also clipped in summmer to keep them cool.
Cats that need clipping due to heat can be clipped 2-3 times a year. the coat is natural insulation so I usually only recommend belly clips for the hot weather.
Clipping to prevent hairballs should be done once every 8-10 weeks.
Clipping to prevent matting should be done every 8-12 weeks.
Bathing and brush-outs to prevent matting and hairballs or allergies should be done every 4-8 weeks.
Have any questions? Don’t be afraid to give me a call, I will let you know what I think you need to do. I can also teach you how to brush your cat properly and which tools to use..
Matting is a result of oils from the skin, dead skin and dead undercoat rubbing together and forming a ball like formation. It can be prevented by brushing and bathing or dry bathing. Brushing stimulates the skin to breathe and remove dead skin, oils and undercoat.
