How Pet Grooming Benefits Your Pet

pet grooming benefitsOur dog and cat grooming services will help your pet look and feel his or her best. These pet grooming services include bathing, coat trimming and shaving, ear cleaning and nail trimming. Our professional groomers are also trained to detect skin conditions that may previously have been undiagnosed, ensuring your pet not only looks good, but also is healthy.

Pet Grooming Important for Detecting Common Skin Problems

Our professional groomers have substantial experience caring for pets, including dogs and cats that may be anxious or nervous during a grooming visit. Our compassionate touch helps pets relax so they can safely benefit from our pet grooming services. Nail trimming for example, can be especially difficult with an anxious or stressed pet. Upset pets are more likely to squirm, which can make it difficult to safely trim a pet’s nails without cutting the quick; cutting the quick causes bleed and sharp pain for your pet. Rather than trying to cut your pet’s nails at home, you can trust our trained professionals to do so safely and with minimal risk of injury to your pet.

Professional dog and cat grooming is also an important opportunity to detect previously undiagnosed skin conditions. As a pet owner, it can be difficult to detect whether a pet’s frequent scratching and itching is simply normal behavior or symptomatic an allergy or skin problem. Should we detect anything, our veterinarian will promptly examine the skin to determine if a problem exists. This is one example of how our pet grooming services aim to go above and beyond for our pets every day.

Professional pet grooming can make a big difference for your pet's appearance and health. Do you bathe your pet at home or rely solely on grooming services? Which does your pet like better?
