How Does Grooming Benefit My Pet?

longwhitedots

Grooming is essential to your pet’s overall care because it contributes to keeping them healthy. Professional grooming isn’t really about making your pet look fancy and show-ready—it’s about keeping your pet’s skin and coat in quality condition and making sure they don’t have any lumps, bumps, rashes, or parasites. From a preventive standpoint, grooming your pet should be just as much a part of their health routine as exams, vaccinations, and parasite testing.

What if My Pet Doesn’t Like Getting a Bath?

To make grooming a part of your pet’s regular routine, it makes a big difference to start them young. They’ll get used to being handled, washed, and brushed, and may eventually grow to love the experience! You are also more than welcome to bring your pet in to say hello and meet our team members so they can become more familiar with our facility.

Managing Your Pet’s Grooming at Home

Every little bit helps, and grooming is no exception. You can start small—brush your pet a few times a week to remove excess hair and dead skin cells, and check their fur and paws for dirt, burs, and bugs. If your pet is older and doesn’t go on walks like they used to, be sure to check their nails frequently and if you aren’t able to trim them at home, just set up routine appointments with our team. We can also show you how to trim your pet’s nails if you would rather do it at home.
