Can an older cat be groomed?

Species: Cat
Breed: Part Persian
Age: 11-15 years
I have been getting Lily groomed twice a year since she was 1. She is getting older and gets matted. Can I still take her in at her age? She is 15.
Thanks




Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

It's perfectly fine for Lily to continue to see the groomer, even at 15. Actually, as she gets older, she will find it more and more difficult to keep up with her coat upkeep. Therefore, regular grooming is very important!
