At Kenosha Animal Hospital, we know that grooming has its role to play in keeping dogs and cats healthier and happier. While our pets can do some of the grooming themselves, there are times when they might need a little help. Along with maintaining the hygiene of healthy pets, dogs and cats that are elderly, injured, or overweight are especially in need of our cat and dog grooming services, because they cannot groom themselves as effectively. To keep their coats soft and their skin clean and healthy, our veterinary team can provide them with a thorough, low-stress grooming experience whenever they need it.
Does your pet need a full bath and brush out, a nail trim and ear cleaning, or all of the above?
Why Grooming is Beneficial to Your Pet’s Health
How do dog grooming and cat grooming make your pet’s health, and life, better? Here are some of the most notable benefits:
- Your pet’s coat will be softer, cleaner, and more effective at helping them keep cool in summer and warm in winter.
- Routine nail trims keep nails from growing too long and becoming prone to breakage, which can invite infection. Also, overgrown nails can affect your pet’s foot posture and gait.
- Regular grooming helps to wash away any build up of oils, dead skin cells, loose hair, dirt, and even parasites.
- Grooming prevents fur matting, which can be very painful for dogs and cats because it tugs on the skin and causes irritation.
Call (262) 658-3533 to find out more about our grooming services and to request an appointment. Make sure your pet is up-to-date on their vaccinations and lab tests, so we can be sure they’re healthy and parasite-free before coming in.
