Why is cat and dog grooming essential?

Grooming leads to better hygiene, which in turn leads to better health. Dogs, cats, and exotic pets all benefit greatly from good hygiene practices. For dogs and cats, regular brushing and bathing can prevent the buildup of dirt, oil, dead skin and hair, and even pests like mites and fleas. Keeping nails trimmed can prevent them from overgrowing and potentially injuring the feet.
When your pet is well-groomed, they’re healthier and happier. If you need help with your pet’s grooming, don’t hesitate to ask us for assistance!
