While we do not offer traditional "awake" dog or cat grooming, we provide the "Shave Under Anesthesia," a special grooming service for dogs and cats that will not tolerate being handled by a traditional, professional groomer.
Some sensitive animals find any type of grooming, even in the hands of an experienced and caring groomer, to be a stressful experience. We find that certain pets react poorly to people handling them which can be made worse by the unfamiliar noises from hair clippers, blow dryers and the running water required for bathing.
While we do not take the administration of anesthesia lightly, we recommend anesthetized grooming for these pets, as it ends up being safer and less stressful for the dog or cat. Doing the shave with the animal under general anesthesia is a good option for sensitive dogs and cats that need some extra TLC. If kitties had the choice, some would definitely choose the anesthesia option over being groomed awake!
A typical dog shave removes all the fur from the dog including the face and head.
A typical cat shave removes all the fur from a cat except for the face and head and tip of the tail.
While cats given a cut certainly have style, this is not generally the reason the cat is shaved. There are several reasons why it may be a good idea to have your cat given a cut, at least temporarily.
Long-haired cats need a great deal of grooming. While most cats do self-groom, long-haired breeds require more care. Their fur should be brushed or combed on a weekly basis to help with shedding and to reduce mats. Busy cat owners may find that clipping their long-haired cats can help cut down on the amount of grooming that is required.
If the cat is not brushed regularly, or has a hard time with self-grooming, mats may build up in the fur. If these mats are left alone, they may twist, pinch or otherwise harm the skin beneath them, leading to open wounds. Cats that develop frequent mats, or that have fur that has become heavily matted can be given a cut to help deal with the problem.
During warmer weather as your cat begins to shed, your long-haired breed may be at a higher risk of developing hairballs. As the cat grooms his shedding fur, he may ingest more than can be safely passed through his digestive system. This can lead to vomiting, choking or bowel obstructions that may require surgery. Clipping the cat’s fur eliminates this problem.
If your cat is older, obese or depressed, he may have difficulty keeping himself clean and well groomed. Cats with longer fur may have increased difficulty with self-care as they age, because they may not have the flexibility to reach all their fur. Clipping them can help your cat self-groom more effectively.
