  1. Cat Health and Nutrition
    Hello, I'm just looking for some advice. My cat is a 14 year old grey short hair and has recently started getting matts around the base of his tail and on his back end. One side was easily brushed out with some time and treats, however the other side has become so bad within a few days despite...
  2. Dog Grooming
    hi everyone I just wanted to post about a new groomer I tried out in Ealing last week as I'm over the moon with them. I took my cockapoo Monty who usually cries the whole time while being groomed to Paws in the City in Dickens Yard. My usual groomer was fully booked so I thought i'd try Paws...
  3. Dog Grooming
    My little yorkie hates his face being touched at all, we’ve taken him to multiple groomers and all can do body but not head, so we’ve started grooming him ourself and he is a lot better but still won’t let us clean the eye gunk! Just wondering if there are any dog groomers out there with any advice?
  4. Dog Grooming
    Hi All, me and my partner have a 2 year old SWD. We are based in south yorkshire. We've had numerous groomers who have made a real mess of him (brushed, blow dried him etc). We're looking for a groomer with experience of cutting spanish water dogs and don't mind travelling to them. He's got...

    Hi, I'm just looking for some advice from Ragdoll cat owners. Long story but about 8 months ago I took in a 6 year old female cat. Sadly it appears I was at least her 5th home and she had had a lot of kittens. When I got her she was still lactating from her last litter. She was in a bit of...

    Hey everyone! I would like some ideas for names for a dog grooming business - it would be from home and I will be level 3 qualified. It will not be set up till next year once I have finished training but I want to think of a name in advance! Open to anything so fire away! P.S don't worry...
  7. Dog Grooming
    Hi, I have a Sproodle who I groom myself. My clippers are broken, husband has given me a £100 budget to buy a new one (budget includes blades). Really want to buy a reliable one that won’t break on me like the cheap Wahl one I had which lasted approximately half of the first grooming session Any...
  8. Rabbits
    We got our bunny Rambo about 4 weeks ago now and 2 weeks ago I noticed that he grooms and scratches a lot. I took him to the vets who checked for fleas and in his ears but they couldn’t see anything and said to keep an eye out if he starts to loose his fur. He wasn’t doing it as much after but...

    Hello, i have a 14 week old dachshund whose nails are getting quite long. They curl (though not under his paw) and I can hear him walk along our wooden floor. I went to the vet today to have them clipped and he refused to clip them saying that there is no need to cut young dog’s nails. It is...
  10. Dog Grooming
    Hi all, after a while thinking it over I am really interested in starting a career in dog grooming. I’m 22 and am currently working an office job that I absolutely hate and I really would love to work with dogs (I do know grooming isn’t always easy or pleasant!). I was wondering what is the...

    Hello, I have a 6 month cocker who's looking a bit fuzzy haired. I am well aware of hand stripping but this isn't always possible due to groomers in the area. I've settled for a Coat King after doing some research and despite negative comments about it there is now overwhelming positive...

    Calling all longhaired cat owners in the UK As you all probably know by now I make a lot of things out of cat and dog hair. Cat hair wet felts particularly well but is harder to come by. Do any of you fancy sending me some in the mail? I'll pay for the postage + £5 for your time, or I'll make...

    Our puppy Cockapoo Pip is 5 months old and I'm wondering when the best time is to get her groomed. She's black so I'm worried about her getting hot in the summer.

    My lovely little goldendoodle had his first groom yesterday and the groomer has completely ruined his look. He was such a teddy bear looking dog and she has shaved off his beautiful coat! He wasnt knotty, her excuse was it was the easiest option. I am upset, he looks like a different dog. How...

    Due to the current world situation most people's lives have changed. You may normally be working today. What are you doing or planning on doing? Are you having a lazy day or finding something productive to do? Are you learning a new skill? Today I gave Pebbles a much needed haircut. I'm not a...

    Hi all, I have a 6 year old Dogue De Bordeaux and although she moults all year round we have now entered spring and she is already moulting like crazy. With a now crazy toddler running around it’s becoming a bit of a pain. Any suggestions in what I could do to calm her moulting down or is it...

    Right this is purely out of curiosity not looking for advice or anything like that. How often do you clean your dog and their toys, bedding, crate (if you use one), bowls etc? I was thinking as my last dog, a patterdale, was only washed when he'd been shaved, his bowl was only washed when it...
