Dog Experts Agree: Grooming Makes All the Difference

The benefits of regular grooming for your pet


Grooming is a struggle that every pet owner has to deal with. Having so many different elements, it can be hard to determine what exactly a pet really needs. Not all cats and dogs need the works (bath, brushing out, blow dry, nail trim, teeth cleaning, anal gland expression) every time, but one thing is for sure: every pet needs to be regularly groomed in a way that fits their breed, temperament, and coat type. 

Whether one has a cat or dog, they may find themselves wondering, “Is getting my pet groomed professionally really necessary? I can bathe and brush my pet myself.” Some short-haired pets can be maintained at home, but longer or thicker coats require the care of an expert. Difficult pets may feel impossible for an untrained parent to deal with, and some services, such as anal gland expression, should only be performed by a trained professional. Groomers are exactly that: trained professionals. They can determine pets’ needs, meet them, and relieve parents’ anxieties that their fur baby isn’t getting the care they deserve. 

Regular grooming has a long list of benefits. It removes dirt, oil, and dead skin cells from pets’ coats, improving their smell and hygiene. It can lessen shedding and prevent or remove matts in their fur. Regular ear cleaning reduces the risk of developing ear infections, and regular nail trimming reduces the risk of a pet having bad posture or bone deformation. Most importantly, a groomer scans over every inch of a pet and can notify pet parents of fleas, skin conditions, or other health issues that one may miss on a day-to-day basis.
