Keeping Your Pet Well Groomed and Cleaned

Grooming your dogs or cats is a vital part of routine care. It keeps your animals healthy and feeling their best. If you need assistance with pet bathing or grooming, contact Compassion Veterinary Hospital in Bradford to make an appointment with our veterinarian or pet groomer. Below is information about why pets need to be groomed regularly, how to do it properly, and what our veterinarian can do to help if needed.

Why Pets Need To Be Groomed Regularly

If you do not groom your pets, the possibility of their fur becoming matted or knotted increases. This can make it easier for dirt, debris, or dandruff to accumulate in your animals’ coat, affecting their health. Grooming can remove those and many external parasites like fleas and ticks, keeping your pets happy and healthy.

How to Groom Your Animal

When you bathe your dogs or cats, place them in a tub or sink and rinse them with warm water. Use a washcloth or cup to wet the portions of their bodies. Lather shampoo on their body and rinse well. Dry your pets with a pet-approved blow-dryer afterward.

How Our Veterinarian Help

If your pets will not allow you to groom them, if you are unsure about the proper way to groom an animal, or if you discover a medical condition that makes grooming risky, our veterinarian can help. Our vet can examine your furry animals for skin conditions and provide tips about grooming your pets properly. You can also use our grooming services to keep your companion pet healthy.
