Why Have Your Pet Professionally Groomed?

Whether you have a dog or cat, an occasional grooming appointment is a good idea. This is especially true of longer haired pets, which can become prone to painful hair clumping and other issues without routine grooming. However, even shorter haired pets (especially dogs) can benefit from an occasional bath and, of course, a nail trim.

Most cats will not need bathing services, but they may benefit from a trim or other grooming services offered by our team.

Regular grooming not only keeps your pet looking his or her best but can keep your pet feeling great by not being weighed down by overgrown fur or uncomfortable fur clumping! And of course, when your pet is bathed regularly, you can enjoy getting rid of that unpleasant dog smell.

Grooming Your Pet in Between Appointments

In addition to bringing your pet in for regular grooming appointments with our professionals, there are also some steps you can take to keep your pet well groomed at home. For starters, invest in a quality brush and make sure you're taking the time to brush your pet's fur regularly. Daily brushing will be required if you have a longer haired pet, while weekly brushing may be better suited for short-haired pets.

If you're comfortable doing so, you might also consider investing in a quality pair of nail trimmers from your local pet store so you can keep your pet's nails trimmed and filed at home. This is a great way to prevent unwanted scratches on your flooring, furniture, and the like.
