Nail Trimming and Ear Cleaning for Cats

Did you know that proper grooming is about much more than just a pretty face? Keeping your cat’s nails, coat, and ears clean and healthy makes them feel good. Regular self-grooming is important, and the absence of it is often an indicator that your cat isn’t feeling well. Due to their upright positioning, most cat ears do not succumb to the same issues some of their floppy-eared canine friends do, as a result, routine ear cleaning isn’t typically necessary for cats. Your cat’s nails are continuously growing and unless your cat has a reliable means to keep them worn down, regular nail trims are a must to avoid getting snagged and torn. Cats have clear nails with a visible “quick” (blood vessel), this means, if you start young, trimming your cat’s nails in the comfort of your home can be quick and easy! We would love to show you how to do this at your earliest convenience.

What ear cleaning services does the clinic provide?


Many pets will go their entire life without needing to have their ears cleaned and for these guys, routine ear cleaning should be avoided. If you suspect your pet has dirty or infected ears be sure to schedule an appointment so that your Veterinarian can determine the best course of action. Many home remedies” can do more harm than good. Please be sure to speak with your Veterinarian before introducing a new solution into your pets’ ears.

What is clinic booking and cancellation policy?


We’re so glad you asked! We would love to schedule an appointment for you and your pet(s). Booking with us is simple, give us a call, and we can fit you into the next available appointment, sometimes this can even be the same day! If you are unable to keep your appointment, just give us a call, and we can find a better, alternative time that works with your schedule.
