Grooming is an important part of your pet’s care routine. At West Market Veterinary Hospital in Greensboro NC, we provide professional pet grooming services to pets in the area. Dog and cat owners bring their pets to our facilities for grooming services to ensure that their pet looks and feels his or her best. Understanding the benefits of pet grooming services can help you decide whether or not grooming is right for your animal friend.
Pet grooming has many benefits. Below are some of the most common reasons that pets benefit from being groomed:
Aesthetic reasons. Pets look their best when they’re freshly groomed. Whether your pet is competing in a competition or just hanging around the house, your pet will look his or her best after being properly groomed.
Grooming is good for your pet’s health. Grooming your pet can help keep him or her clean, which can prevent your pet from getting illnesses and infections. In addition, when the groomer works with your pet, he or she will touch many different parts of your pet, which could lead to early discovery of a cancerous lump or bump. Ultimately, grooming is a good way to check in on the overall health of your pet.
Reduced human allergies. Grooming helps get rid of stray hairs and dander that can exacerbate human allergies. The more often you groom your pet, the less hair and pet dander you can expect to see around the house.
Increased comfort for your pet. Pets may find knots in their fur and matted hair to be uncomfortable. Having these problems eliminated can help keep your pet more comfortable overall.
Increased benefit for older animals. Older animals suffer from problems like limited mobility, stiff muscles and stiff joints. This can make it harder for older animals to groom themselves, which can decrease your pet’s quality of life. Getting your older pet professionally groomed helps ensure that your older pet gets the grooming he or she needs on a regular basis.
Pest control. Professional groomers can use medicated shampoos and special combs to help keep your pet free of fleas and ticks.
At West Market Veterinary Hospital, we provide the following services to pets being groomed:
Bathing. We’ll bathe your pet with safe, gentle shampoos that help your pet retain the natural oils that protect his or her coat and skin.
Brushing and combing. Your pet will get a thorough combing. During this time, your pet’s groomer will demat your pet’s fur, to ensure that there are no tangles.
Nail and hair trimming. We’ll trim nails and trim hair to just the right length for your pet’s needs.
