In addition to improving your pet's appearance, pet grooming offers additional health benefits for your pet. Our Oakland Park Animal Hospital has years of experience in dog grooming and cat grooming. This experience has allowed our grooming professionals at Oakland Park pet hospital to optimize these techniques to improve the health of your pet. Our veterinary hospital employs grooming techniques such as bathing, clipping nails, brushing teeth and hair, detailing and more. Grooming is a great way to improve health, prevent infection and keep pets cool and comfortable. Be sure to check out our Frequently Asked Questions on Pet Grooming for your Animals.
Both cat and dog grooming include extensive baths that target the whole body, including hard-to-reach areas such as the ears. Although many pets have grooming techniques of their own, our groomers in Oakland Park can reach the places they cannot and apply special cleaning products to eliminate germs and bacteria. These grooming tools usually require warm water, special soaps, shampoos and flea and tick prevention formulas. Applying these to the pet ensures that they stay clean in all areas, while reducing infections in areas where bacteria easily builds up - a common occurrence in ears especially.
Another important part of dog grooming and cat grooming is proper brushing of the animal's hair. If a cat has hair balls and knots all over, it can cause them to suffer stress and discomfort that can disrupt their eating and sleeping routines. Regular cat grooming at our Oakland Park veterinary hospital can eliminate this stress by properly brushing the knots out of the cat's fur, leaving it soft, manageable and less of a target for parasite infestations. Brushing in dog grooming can have similar benefits. If a dog's hair is not properly brushed, it can be a breeding ground for parasites as it becomes harder to clean and seals in dirt and thorns. At our animal vet clinic, these problems can be solved by washing with proper tools and cleaners in addition to a detailed brushing of fur.
The pet grooming techniques at our pet hospital are not limited to just cat and dog grooming. At our veterinary hospital, we believe that all pets should have proper hygiene and receive consistent grooming in order to maintain a good state of health.
