Fur Clipping

The fur clipping is often the first thing a parent looks at when they receive their pet’s After-Care Package. The fur clipping is special because it provides a visual and tactile reminder of your pet’s beauty and individuality. Often times just smelling the fur clipping can bring back memories of your pet.

We offer two different methods:

Method 1: Traditional Fur Clipping

At Radiant Heart After-Care for Pets we take great care when clipping your pet’s fur. We use professional grooming tools, and do our best to take samples that incorporate all of the colors of your pet. We then place the clippings, as neatly as possible, in a paper mache heart box. Please feel free to make special requests. For example, in addition to the long fur that grows on your pet’s neck, you may also want a clipping from their tail.

The traditional fur clipping is a standard part of the full After-Care Package.

Method 2: New Fur Clipping That Captures Pattern & Feel

(Developed July 2019). Using this revolutionary method, we can preserve a section of your pet’s fur exactly as it looks and feels.  For example, if there is a special section of your pet’s fur that you really love, we can preserve it for you.  Price includes 4″ X 4″ area.  If you would like more of your pet’s fur to be preserved, additional fees may apply.

First, the fur is cleaned and brushed. Second, the fur is coated with a release agent.  Third, a layer of special mold-making liquid silicone is applied to the area. Once the silicone is dry (30 minutes), a professional grooming tool is used to shave the fur near the skin. The ends (roots) of the fur are then glued to card stock and allowed to dry. Finally, the silicone is carefully removed, leaving a pelt-like fur clipping that allows you to see and feel your pet’s fur.

This type of fur clipping must be ordered as an additional service.
