The Benefits of Professional Dog Grooming

Do you bathe your dog yourself? Or do you drop your pet off for his beauty treatments? While many people prefer to bathe their dogs at home, there are actually several benefits to having your canine buddy groomed by a professional. A local vet lists a few of them below.

Healthy Fur And Skin

One reason proper grooming is so important is that it keeps Fido’s fur and skin healthy. Our canine pals come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, and they have many different types of coats. While some pooches only need occasional baths, others may require a few baths a month. No matter what breed your furry companion is, your dog will look and feel better with proper grooming!

No Mess

One great things about having Fido groomed professionally is that it’s simply much easier for you. You won’t have to deal with mopping up a soaked floor, or getting dog fur out of your bathtub. All you have to do is bring your dog to his appointment. Then, you get to pick up a clean pooch, and enjoy cuddles from a fresh-smelling pup!

Spot Warning Signs

It isn’t uncommon for groomers to notice issues with their furry clients’ skin, such as rashes or lesions. Your groomer may also see a problem with Fido’s ears or teeth, or spot signs of parasites. Of course, you should never rely solely on grooming appointments to detect medical issues: making sure your pet gets regular exams is also crucial.

Professional Clipping

While not every dog needs clipping, some dogs, like Pomeranians and Poodles, benefit from regular trims. For instance, some of our four-legged buddies stay cooler in summer with a good haircut. Professional groomers know how to cut and style Fido’s fur, so that your pup looks and feels great!

Pawdicure

Overgrown nails can be very painful for our canine buddies! However, many people are uneasy about clipping their pets’ claws themselves. A groomer has plenty of experience in giving Man’s Best Friend his pawdicures, and will be able to trim your dog’s nails cleanly and correctly.

Tips

Every dog has different grooming needs. For instance, trimming ear hair can be beneficial for some pooches, but may be problematic for others. Ask your vet for specific advice.
