Cat Dematting & Under Coat Removal Service Singapore

What is undercoat removal?

Undercoat removal is the necessary process of removing shed, dead or trapped fur in your cat’s coat. Regular undercoat removal for your cat can be easily achieved through regular grooming and brushing; using a straight-toothed comb to remove loose hair.

More aggressive undercoat removal is termed de-shedding or dematting; where excess fur can sometimes become entangled, matted, and difficult to remove. In such scenarios, removal must be approached with a different set of tools, or in serious cases, cut or shaved away by a professional cat groomer.

Why should I regularly remove my cat’s undercoat?

Regular undercoat removal and overall coat maintenance keeps your cat feeling clean and cool. Ingestion of fur by your cat is less likely to occur, reducing the occurrence of hairballs or intestinal obstruction. Undercoat removal also prevents excess fur being shed all over the home, leaving a neater, more hygienic shared living environment for both cats and their owners.
