If a veterinarian or veterinary technician tells you cats don’t need to be groomed, ask “What about fat cats who can’t clean? What about sick cats? What about 20-year old cats? What about Persian cats? What about shedding season? What about claws growing into paw pads?”
Veterinary professionals have so much to offer, but they are not who I go to for questions about quality-of-life care. Grooming improves the quality of life for owners and pets.
