Grooming

Don’t feel guilty for wanting to show off your well-groomed dog or cat. Grooming and bathing your pet can help maintain its health.

Why Grooming Should Be Part of Pet Care

Here are some reasons why grooming should be part of any pet’s regular veterinary care:

  • Injury inspection— When your dog or cat’s nails get trimmed, our groomer will examine whether your pet has any cuts or punctures from thorns or debris.
  • Flea and tick prevention— A thorough bathing and hair trimming gets our groomer up close and personal on the status of parasites on your pet’s skin.
  • Early detection of disease— Our groomer can detect abnormalities like lumps, lesions, discoloration, rashes, bald patches, and other conditions that indicate a larger health issue.
  • Pampering— Whether it’s a massage or just tender love and care, your pet emotionally and physically benefits from proper grooming.
