Keeping Your Pet Well Groomed and Clean

Many people feel their best after a new haircut and the same is true for your pets. However, keeping your pet clean and groomed isn't simply about good looks. A poorly-groomed pet may be uncomfortable or in pain. Pets can even develop health concerns if they are not properly groomed and some breeds or species are especially susceptible. Pet bathing isn't always as straight-forward as caring for yourself. Some of our clients may be unable to perform every part of the grooming procedure. If you live in Memphis, Cordova, Bartlett, or one of the surrounding communities, visit one of our convenient locations throughout the area at PetVax Complete Care Centers.

What Goes Into Pet Grooming?

Some of our clients are surprised by the scope of pet grooming. This includes bathing, drying, brushing, nail clipping, ear cleaning, and even oral hygiene. After proper grooming, a pet will look and smell better, but the benefits extend further than that. Some dog breeds have fur that grows over their eyes and grooming will help them see better. The animal will walk more comfortably when its claws are short and neat.

While matted fur may not seem like a big deal, it can cut off circulation or prevent a pet from defecating, both of which are serious issues. Cats may develop hairballs more often if they are not groomed. Plus, removing that excess fur literally lightens your pet's burden. Grooming can also serve as a reset, making it easier to keep up with your pet's hygiene at home.

Hidden Benefits

An unexpected benefit of pet grooming is that the groomer has a chance to closely examine your pet, potentially identifying issues that you may have missed. This is especially true for skin ailments such as lesions, ticks, or infections, hiding beneath the fur. The sooner you discover these issues, the sooner you can have your pet examined and begin treatment. Not everyone has the time, experience, or ability to groom their pets, which is why we are happy to serve our clients at PetVax Complete Care Centers.
