Cat Grooming

MY CAT IS 17 YEARS OLD AND NOT CLEANING HERSELF VERY WELL, HER FUR IS GETTING MATTED. IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN SPRAY ON HER TO DETANGLE HER FUR?

Hi Rebecca,

Many older cats have difficulty keeping themselves groomed. Brushing your cat regularly and using a commercial de-tangling spray (available at most pet stores) or leave-in conditioner may help. A small amount of mineral or olive oil mixed with water and sprayed on the coat then combed through may also be tried.

If your cat has large mats that are tightly adhered to the skin and cannot be combed out, she may need to be shaved instead. Do not try to cut mats with scissors as you could accidentally injure your cat. If you are unable to remove the mats or to shave her at home, please contact a groomer or see your veterinarian.

    Very nice pet hospital. We were extremely pleased. Impressed by the education they give you as well. Our dog had her teeth cleaned and the nurse spent 10 minutes going over post-op procedures. Also we needed to come back in one week to have sutures looked at and they don't charge you an office visit for that like Leader Heights Animal Hospital would do

    I am extremely happy with the care that my puppy Cody received when he had his recent hip surgery. I highly recommend Patton Veterinary Hospital.

    The entire staff is courteous, friendly, and helpful. They all seem to have a true love for all pets. They follow-up promptly and we have never had a problem with any of the doctors (Dr. Doug is our primary) or any of the other staff.
