Regular bathing and grooming your pet does more than just keep your furry friend looking and smelling nice; it can help you stay on top of potentially serious conditions that could affect your pet's health. In fact, pet bathing and grooming services are often offered by veterinarians as health services. Here are some reasons why it's always a good idea to seek out a veterinarian in Magnolia, TX who offers pet bathing and grooming services.
Bathing Your Pet Regularly
While bathing a cat or dog too much can strip their skin of the oils that it needs to be healthy, at least some washing is necessary if you want your pet to be healthy and germ-free. Different pet breeds will require different bathing schedules, so you will need to ask your veterinarian what kind of bathing schedule will work best for your pet.
When a veterinarian bathes your pet, they do more than just make sure your dog or cat is clean. A good pet grooming and bathing service groom the pet's fur, checks the eyes and ears for parasites or infection and provides any treatments that are necessary for skin problems that they might find. Brushing the fur is particularly important for animals with longer fur as it prevents tangles that can cause pain and even infection in certain dog and cat breeds. It also gets rid of dirt, dandruff, and dead skin that can accumulate in an animal's coat over time.
We offer limited bathing and grooming services for your pet, including:
- Nail trims (dogs, cats, small exotic mammals and reptiles)
- Cleansing baths
- Medicated baths as prescribed by our doctors
- Anal gland expression
- Medical grooming such as sanitary clips
- Wing and nail trims for birds
Finally, bathing your pet helps it feel better physically. Having a coat free of dirt and tangles can help a long-haired dog or cat feel more comfortable, and applying the right kind of shampoo or soap can help relieve an animal that might have rashes, dry skin, and other skin problems that might be causing irritation.
