Frequently Asked Questions
My dog is shedding like crazy! I’d like to shave him completely for the summer. Can you do that?
We don’t recommend shaving a double-coated dog for several reasons:
- It changes the texture of the coat as it grows back.
- Shaving the undercoat will promote a thicker coat, which will ultimately cause more shedding.
- A dog’s coat provides protective insulation from the heat and the sun.
Then what can I do to stop my pet from shedding so much?
Double-coated breeds should be combed, brushed, and professionally groomed regularly to maintain a healthy coat and reduce shedding.
My cat’s fur is matted and I’m thinking of shaving her. Is that a good idea?
We do not recommend shaving cats unless a medical condition requires it. Cats’ skin is very thin, which could result in cuts and tears. Cats also have double coats, and clipping would change the texture and promote thicker fur.
We may be able to de-mat your cat’s coat without shaving. We can also trim around the private areas and stomach to help you maintain your cat’s fur.
Can I speak to the groomer first?
