Pet grooming is a veterinary service that is essential to your pet’s health and happiness. Your veterinary clinic may already offer pet grooming services, or if not they can refer you to a reputable pet groomer near you. Here’s a look at some of the most beneficial pet grooming services to your pet’s health.

Pet Bathing and & a Cut
The most common pet grooming service is a bath and cut. This simple service provides significant benefits to your pet. In the normal process of grooming your pet, the pet groomer can check his/her skin, coat, eyes, mouth, ears, nose, and nails for signs of illness, disease, and other health problems. If something odd is noticed, these matters can be brought to the attention of the pet owner or the attending veterinarian. In some cases, groomers can notice things well before they become prominent enough to come to the attention of most pet owners. Regular pet grooming also relieves your pet of tangled hair, matted fur, and a dirty coat, which may be causing discomfort. Particularly in warmer months, pets with thick fur or long hair will appreciate regular pet grooming.

Nail Trim and Ear Cleaning
When your pet’s nails become too long, it becomes difficult, and even painful, for him to walk. Crazy long or overgrown nails have been known to cause toe sprains in dogs. Excessively long nails can also cause injury to pet owners and furniture. They tend to snag in carpeting and so on. Add a nail trim to your regular pet grooming services to keep your pet’s nails at a healthy, reasonable length; it usually a free add-on. Some veterinarians also offer ear cleaning in their pet grooming packages. Ear cleaning prevents or eliminates ear mites, infection, and inflammation in your pet’s ears.

Pet Dental Services
Unfortunately, many pet owners skip over regular pet dental services when choosing a pet grooming package. Animal hospitals and veterinary clinics that offer pet grooming will often also offer pet dental services such as tooth brushing with a pet grooming. These services are very helpful in maintaining your pet’s oral health.

Caution : don’t fall into the trap of believing that a periodic tooth brushing by a pet groomer can replace regular dental checkups or regular dental cleanings as provided by your veterinarian. The services are not the same. Your veterinarian will check your dog’s mouth, teeth, and gums for signs of decay and disease. Early detection of oral health problems can ensure more effective treatment options and a higher recovery rate. And only a licensed veterinarian can prescribe treatments for dental disease.

The most comprehensive pet grooming services are often found at veterinary clinics.
