Keeping Your Pet Well Groomed and Clean with Our Veterinarian
posted: Mar. 31, 2022.
Everyone likes a well-groomed and fresh-smelling pet. However, this doesn’t come without putting some work into it. Grooming your cat or dog should be part of your routine care to maintain happy and healthy pets. And if you aren’t sure where to start, book an appointment with us at Hillview Veterinary Clinic/ Bed & Biscuit in Reynoldsburg, OH, to learn more about pet grooming.
Pet Grooming Tips
The first step in grooming your cat or dog is by cleaning them. But how do you do this? Place your pet in a tub or sink and use warm water and a soft washcloth to clean them. Use pet-appropriate shampoo on your pets and rinse them well. Afterward, you can use a pet-appropriate blower to dry your dog or cat.
How Our Veterinarian Can Help
If you are unsure of proper pet grooming, our vet can help. Bring your animal friend to our clinic, and our vet will clean them and give you tips on how you can do the same at home. Better yet, when grooming your pet in our clinic, our vet can examine their skin condition to rule out parasite infestation, allergies, and other pet skin conditions.
Why Do You Need to Groom Your Pets?
If you don’t clean your pets regularly, it’s only a matter of time before fur becomes matted, leading to the accumulation of debris, dandruff, and other unwanted substances. Grooming keeps your pet’s skin clean, and helps keep away parasites like ticks, fleas, and mites. Trimming your pet’s long nails aids your pet in walking and eliminates spots where germs love to hide.
Proper pet grooming not only makes your animal friends comfortable but prevents many diseases.
