Why you should let the professionals take care of your pet’s grooming needs

Keeping your beloved pet clean is definitely high up on the list when it comes to being a good owner, which is why grooming them correctly is incredibly important.

While you can certainly groom your pets at home, it is something that can take up a lot of time, and if not done correctly, can actually be bad for your pet. Here are some of the reasons why you should get a professional to groom your pet, rather than doing it yourself.

  • It’s the full package

A good grooming regime isn’t just making sure that your dog or cat is brushed regularly. It can and should (depending on your pet’s needs) include trimming their nails, making sure their ears are clean, expressing of their anal glands, and many other treatments.

It can be difficult to determine which of the above your pet needs, and when, which is why taking them to a professional groomer is a quick, safe, and hassle-free way of ensuring your pet looks and feels great.

  • The right tools for the right job

If you’re struggling with keeping your pet’s double coat clean, or are tired of dealing with their constant shedding, despite your best efforts with the brush,you might be tackling the problem with all the wrong tools. You could be having the same issues withstruggling to clip their nails.

When it comes to nail clipping, it’s critically important to be sure at which length to clip to avoid any bleeding and possible infection down the line, and so that your pet doesn’t become traumatised by the act itself.

In terms of bathing, a professional groomer will have the right brushes on hand that will be best suited for your pet’s type of coat. This will either help get rid of pet hair that you’ve been struggling to get to, or will allow us to know if your pet should rather have a trim to ensure that they shed less. And most importantly, they’ll feel comfortable.

Brushing isn’t the only consideration a professional cleaner will make either. We’ll also look at the right type of shampoo for your pet’s skin and fur, and when we’re done, practice proper drying techniques to make sure that their skin doesn’t become irritated.
