Importance of Grooming Your Pet

Humans go to the salon to get a haircut to look and feel better or sometimes to start a new chapter in their lives. Unfortunately, some pet owners do not give much thought to the need for regular grooming for their pets. Regular grooming is just as important for dogs and cats. Failure to have your pet groomed by a professional groomer regularly could lead to serious health consequences. That is why our team at TLC for Pets wants to stress the importance of grooming your pet. If you live in or around Owings Mills or Reisterstown, MD, contact our team to schedule your pet’s next grooming appointment.

Grooming Reduces Shedding

While it is normal for pets to shed their hair, it doesn’t mean that you should be covered in pet hair day in and day out. By having a vet groom your pet regularly, the amount of hair that your pet sheds will be reduced significantly. Regular washing will keep your pet’s coat healthier, and routine brushing will remove excess fur.

Grooming Eliminates Discomfort

Just as you feel clean and refreshed after a nice shower or spa day, you can expect your pet to feel the same after a grooming session. Grooming consists of much more than a typical haircut, as you expect your pet to get a good bath, light massage, brushing, and trimming. When your pet leaves our veterinarian’s office, it will be free of fur-related issues and feel like a new dog or cat.

Grooming Prevents Infections

Pet grooming services involve special attention to the teeth and ears. You can even request an ear cleaning, which can help in the prevention of ear infections. We will also provide professional teeth brushing, which helps prevent oral infections.

Grooming Protects the Feet

Routine grooming includes trimming and grinding your pet’s nails. Pedicures are important for ensuring that your pet’s nails are kept at an appropriate length, allowing your pet to walk and run comfortably. If the nails are kept too long, your pet may begin to walk on the sides of the feet, leading to arthritis or worse. Anyone who owns wooden floors knows the importance of trimming their pet’s nails.
