Grooming your beloved puppy, dog, kitten or cat, is not only about making them look ship-shape, it’s also an essential aspect of pet care.

For a happy and healthy pet!

There are so many good reasons to consider a regular trip to a Pet Groomer and the number one reason, of course, is the well being of your loyal pet.

Put simply, grooming improves your pet’s condition. A brush aerates their coat and is good for blood circulation as well as removing dead skin cells and unclogging pores. For long-haired pets, grooming helps to prevent mats which can be painful and difficult to remove and, for cats, grooming prevents hairballs.

When it comes to hygiene, especially of long-haired cats and dogs, grooming can help keep all the nooks and crannies clean, preventing nasty infections.


How often should you ‘groom’?

We would suggest you book at least once a month, especially for long-haired breeds.

For home grooming, we suggest daily brushing for long-haired pets and for more short-haired breeds, weekly. Eyes and ears should also be checked and cleaned at home if necessary.

Grooming recommendations are generally the same for dogs and cats with the exception that cats groom themselves so are cleaner than dogs and thus don’t really need to be washed. They also stress easily so if a wash is necessary a dry shampoo can be used.
