Potential Health Benefits
Along with improving your pet’s hygiene, grooming is beneficial to your pet’s health in several ways:
- Minimizes shedding
- Prevents the buildup of dead skin cells, hair, dirt, oil, and bacteria
- Washes away irritants that can cause itching and skin damage
- Trimming nails prevents breakage, abnormal growth, and improves foot posture
- Prevents painful matting of the fur, which can become a breeding ground for bacteria and parasites
- Allows us to check for ticks and fleas, and prescribe treatment if any are found
Dogs and cats must be vaccinated and parasite-free before they visit our groomer. This is to ensure that our other visitors stay healthy, too.
- DHPP (distemper)
- Bordetella (kennel cough)
- FVRCP (feline distemper/upper respiratory)
