We are able to offer grooming services for both dogs and cats at our clinic. Grooming can have many additional health benefits to your pet beside the usual ‘beauty parlor’ look and smell!
A matted pet can quickly become a target for flies in the summer months. Matting is also extremely uncomfortable and painful for your pet. Regular grooming encourages a healthy skin and coat and is the perfect time to build a bond with your pet. Remember also that an ‘unkept’ animal may be a sign that the animal is not well and should be examined by one of our veterinarians.
There are many indications for medicated baths in animals. One of the most common reasons for using a medicated bath is to treat ‘itchy’ skin. Another common condition responsive to medicated baths is seborrhea. Medicated baths are recommended after your pet has been examined and the skin problem properly diagnosed by a veterinarian. Keep in mind that unusual things such as hypothyroidism can be the cause of a skin problem in your pet.
