Having a brachycephalic/short nosed cat, can be super cute!

Brachy breeds include the Persian, Chinchilla, Exotic Shorthair, Himalayan, British Shorthair, and Scottish Fold.

But they can also come with some extra grooming needs.

A short nose means wrinkles in the face, and sometimes tear drainage issues (epiphora) causing smells. This results in a need to clean between these folds and extra tear production and staining. Daily, or even twice daily is recommended.

Forgetting to clean your kitty's face, can result in some nice crusty pieces to clean up next time. This can also lead to bacterial and fungal infections to grow. In this case, you will need something stronger than warm salty water.

I recommend and use Progroom facial, and have done so for years. Many customers have also continued to use it daily. It can be used in and out of the bath, no need to rinse. Out of the bath I add the foaming facial (which can be watered down to your liking) on a non scented baby wipe, using my finger tips to get into the folds. For kittens you may use cotton tips carefully. Make sure you never get any facials or liquids into the short nasal cavity or eyes. If your cat has skin issues, always discuss any product use with a vet.

This product can also be as a leave in shampoo spot clean for any toileting issues. Learn more here.
