The grooming services offered are:
- Lion cut
- Comb out
- Sanitary Shave
- Belly Shave
- Nail Trim
***All cats admitted for grooming must be current on Rabies vaccination.***
While we do not have a professional groomer on our staff and cannot offer fancy scissor cuts, we are very proud of the work our technicians do. They are very detail oriented and want to send your cat home looking his or her very best.
We schedule grooms on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. You must have your cat to us for admittance between 7:30 AM and 8:30 AM. This allows us to have plenty of time to work with them during the day. Normal discharge is between 5:00 PM – 5:30 PM. Of course, if your cat is ready before this time we will gladly call you for an early pick up.
At the Cat Clinic of Cobb, we make every effort to groom our patients without distressing the cats or injuring any of our staff members. However, many cats simply do not take kindly to being groomed or getting wet! In some instances, mats may be close to the skin and it can be uncomfortable and painful to remove them. If your cat becomes too agitated or aggressive, we will not use force to get the groom done, as this would only serve to further upset the cat and possibly even cause injury. In these cases we recommend the use of sedation to calm the patient and insure a thorough grooming.
A light sedation allows us to do a good job, while keeping your cat comfortable. Any cat requiring sedation will be examined by a doctor and the proper sedation will be determined. Expect an additional charge, if sedation is required. Sedation can run anywhere from $60.00 – $100.00 depending on each cats specific size, weight, and medical requirements.
If your patient is over 7 years old, we require lab work to ensure the proper anesthetic protocol is used for your cats safety. You can call us at the clinic to discuss lab work and prices.
We do not have a price list for our grooming services, but prices typically range from $25 to $95. Our fees depend upon your grooming request, the cat’s coat length, and the severity of matting. When your cat is admitted for grooming, the technician performing the groom will be happy to take a look at your cat and give you an estimate at that time.
If you have any questions, please call our office and we will be happy to answer any questions.
