The Importance of Keeping Your Pet Well Groomed and Clean

Cuddling with your pet is so much better when he smells fresh and clean. Pet bathing, grooming, and brushing will keep your pet looking and smelling his best. A cleaner pet is also a healthier pet. By introducing your cats and dogs to professional grooming when they’re young, they will grow to enjoy the experience. Here is how grooming can benefit your pet.

Skin and Fur

Whether you own a short-haired or long-haired pet, he needs his fur brushed regularly to remove dirt, dead hair, and debris. Brushing gets rid of knots and tangles in your pet’s fur and distributes natural oils to make his coat shine. Regular brushing can even minimize hairballs in your cat.

Pet bathing and brushing gives your groomer an opportunity to check your pet’s skin for signs of sickness, injuries, or pesky ticks and fleas. Pet allergy symptoms often show up on your pet’s skin in the form of open sores, dryness, and skin rash. The sooner these problems are detected, the sooner your pet can get treatment. Inform our veterinarian right away if your pet shows signs of skin infections or disease. 

Ears, Teeth, and Nails

Professional pet grooming includes checking your pet’s ears, teeth, and nails. Allergies can lead to painful ear infections in your pet. If your pet’s ears are red, inflamed, or have a foul smell to them, he could have an ear infection. If this is the case, notify our veterinarian right away for treatment. 

Overgrown nails can make it difficult for your pet to walk, and pose a risk of ingrown nails and infections. Grooming includes trimming your pet’s nails and checking his mouth and teeth. We will show you how to brush your pet’s teeth at home to help prevent dental disease. You can also talk to our vet about professional dental cleanings.
