Grooming a pet is an important part of their routine care. If you require help with pet grooming, help is just a phone call away. You can contact North Hills Animal Hospital in Sherwood, AR, to make an appointment with our groomer or to have your pet assessed by our veterinarian. Here are the reasons to groom your pet, what you can expect during a grooming appointment, and steps you can take at home to upkeep your pet's appearance.
Reasons Why Grooming Is Important For Pets
A pet that is not groomed will likely suffer from a foul odor because of the buildup of dirt, oils, and other agents in its fur and on its skin. Their fur may become matted and tangled, giving them an unkempt appearance. Some dog breeds have fur that grows very long. This could become a hazard for the dog if it grows over its eyes, restricting its vision. Nails and claws need to be clipped so that they do not become snagged in carpets. A pet's teeth need cleaning to keep it from suffering from dental issues such as plaque buildup or bad breath.
What You Can Expect During a Pet Grooming Session
We do have a few requests when making an appointment for your pet for grooming. We require that all pets being groomed have their vaccinations up to date. This is important for the safety of all pets that come into our establishment. In addition, please treat your pet for fleas before their session date arrives for the same reason.
Our pet groomer will provide your pet with professional pampering according to your specifications. This includes shampooing, drying, nail clipping and/or painting, brushing and combing, and more. Please contact us to find out more about the services we provide.
How to Keep Your Pet Looking and Feeling Its Best
At home, continue to groom your pet even if you bring it to our establishment for a session. Combing and brushing will keep your pet's fur from becoming matted between appointments. Take a look at your pet's teeth regularly to check for problems so you can make an appointment for a grooming session when needed. You can also try to brush your pet's teeth with a pet toothbrush and meat-flavored paste. Our groomer will teach you how to use nail or claw clippers so you can trim sharp portions on your own.
