Basic Cat Grooming

Basic Cat Grooming

There are a number of grooming tasks that you need to perform to keep your cat healthy and happy. Brush your cat often to remove excessive hair that could mat or cause hairballs if ingested. Examine your cat’s skin for unusual lumps, cuts or signs of parasites while brushing. Dental hygiene is essential since decay can cause pain and trouble eating while introducing dangerous bacteria into your cat’s bloodstream. Clean your cat’s teeth several times weekly and look for red or swollen gums, loose teeth or signs of decay that might need medical attention. Trim your cat’s nails to lessen inappropriate scratching and the damage it causes. Plus long nails caught in carpeting or drapes can tear and injure your cat’s toes. Swap out your cat’s ears about twice a month while looking for cuts or signs of infection such as redness, swelling, dark discharge and a bad odor. Contact your vet Marietta, GA to learn more.
