The Importance of Grooming Your Pet

Pet grooming is about more than just keeping your pet looking his or her best. There are also important health benefits to keeping a well-groomed animal. At Chastain Veterinary Medical Group, we provide safe pet grooming and pet dental services in north Dallas, McKinney, and Frisco to help you keep your pet in top condition. Here are some of the reasons why you shouldn’t fall behind on your pet’s grooming schedule.

Improved Comfort
Imagine having your hair pulled back tightly or tied up in knots all the time. That is probably exactly what your pet feels like when he or she has mats in the fur. Regular grooming keeps mats at bay and prevents the need for shaving your pet when mats get too out of control. Your pet groomer will work out any small tangles that do form, but you can keep things under control by brushing your pet regularly between grooming sessions.

Less Shedding
Shedding is the bane of many pet owners. No matter how much you love your pet, there is nothing fun about constantly sweeping up hair. When you groom your animal regularly, there will be less shedding to deal with in your house. Not only does this make your life easier in terms of your cleaning schedule, but it will also help any human allergy suffers in the household to stay more comfortable.

Better Health
Your pet could be suffering from health problems that may be hard to see from a distance but are easily noticed during grooming. For instance, if your animal has a tick, it can be found during the grooming process. During pet grooming, it’s also possible to find lumps, lesions, rashes, and other issues that could indicate serious health problems like cancer; regular grooming could actually be life-saving for your pet.
