Benefits of Professional Pet Grooming
Having your pet groomed on a regular basis can provide many health benefits and keeps your pet looking and smelling great. It allows for early detection of skin diseases, ear infections, and external parasites. The sooner an issue is discovered, the sooner it can be treated. Our groomer will immediately notify one of our doctors if a problem is suspected. Professional pet grooming is also important in helping prevent skin infections and painful hair matting. The benefits of regular brushing and nail trimming are detailed below:
Brushing can remove dead hairs, dandruff, and debris and stimulate the natural oils in the hair, resulting in a smooth, healthy, shiny coat. It can also prevent your dog’s coat from getting matted and your cat from getting hair balls.
Regular nail trimming can help reinforce healthy foot structure and prevent nail injury and curling, which can lead to infection.
