Benefits of Professional Pet Grooming
Pet grooming not only improves your pet’s appearance, it’s good for his health. A grooming session will leave your pet feeling clean and refreshed. Regular grooming can also prevent health problems and diseases.
Bathing – Bathing your pet removes dirt, grime and dust from your pet’s fur and skin, leaving him fresh and clean. A clean pet will contribute to a cleaner home environment and help prevent the spread of ticks and fleas.
Brushing – Brushing rids your pet of excess fur. It also evenly spreads the natural oils throughout his fur to promote a healthier coat. Regular brushing can prevent knots in your pet’s fur that can cause matting. Matting can breed bacteria and fungus and lead to skin rash and infections. Even short haired dogs can get mats in their fur if not brushed regularly.
Nails – Long nails can make it difficult for your pet to walk. It also increases his risk of infections due to germs breeding under the skin. Nail trimming can prevent mobility problems and protect your pet from infections and joint pain.
Ears – Ear cleaning helps prevent bacterial and fungal ear infections in your pet. Our veterinarian will inspect your pet’s ears for signs of infections or abnormalities before cleaning.
Teeth – Pet grooming also includes brushing your pet’s teeth. If our vet notices problems like swollen or bleeding gums or loose teeth, we’ll let you know so you can schedule a full dental exam and cleaning.
