Cat Grooming - Cat Panel & Sanitary Trim

A technique used for sensitive or matted cats, explained more below.

Cat | Panel and Sanitary Trim

An award-winning and industry leading pet grooming businses providing exemplary grooming services to all dogs and cats, no matter their size.

These techniques are a great way to maintain a semi-long-haired or long-haired coat. Especially if your cat is prone to matting underneath or is sensitive to grooming in this area.

The benefits of this service include:

  • Keeping clean
  • Stops urine tract infections
  • Comfortable
  • Full groom for Summer

Panel trimming entails trimming from the underarms down to the soft belly and groin area.

Sanitary trimming means clipping around the groin, genitals, bottom, and tail base.

The cost will depend on the severity of the matting and the temperament of the cat.

With both trims, the body is groomed out entirely.

Please have a look at our shop for suggested combs.

Top Tip: If you’re having issues grooming your cat, try feeding him/her twice a day, and while they are distracted by eating, this is when you groom.

Cat Grooming

Useful Information

  • We recommend resisting any cutting of the coat if possible, as not only does it spoil the natural beauty of the cat, but it causes the hair to grow back thicker and longer, and sometimes can stunt the regrowth!
  • Matted hair is uncomfortable for a cat and needs to be clipped off the cat by a professional.
  • Never use scissors on a cat; their skin is extremely loose and thin and can be cut easily.
  • If left, matts will restrict the movement of the cat and tear the hair out of the skin.
  • Once matting is removed, damaged skin is often uncovered where hair has been pulled out.
  • After matt removal, please discuss with our groomer a future grooming plan to avoid further matting.
  • Regular grooming avoids matting, keeps the skin healthy and makes cats happy.

Have taken our rescue cat Ollie to AA twice this year for grooming as he is a large long haired tabby and needs lots of brushing. AA were brilliant, great service and very friendly and knowledgeable staff. - Graham Watson
Review by Alessia Stroni

"My cat Nyx is only about 4 months old now and she went in for a wet bath, conditioning, nail trimming, and ear cleaning. I am very pleased with the Absolutely Animals service! She smells very clean and her coat is shiny and fluffy. I will be going back in 8 weeks for another cleaning!" Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, Responsiveness Alessia Stroni
Friendly Review from Lee Gray

"Friendly and professional service. Overwhelmed how different our cat's fur felt after her grooming, her belly was a mass of matted fur and she didn't like us going near there with a brush. Fantastic job so happy I made that call thank you." Lee Gray
