Benefits of grooming your pet

The Benefits of Grooming Your Pet

There are many benefits of getting your pet groomed. Grooming is good for your pet, and it benefits you as well. If you need pet grooming services, call Oakland Park Animal Hospital in Oakland Park, FL. Our veterinarian, Dr. Spencer L. Ratnoff, would like you to know a bit more about pet grooming and how it can help keep your furry friend looking and feeling great.

Pet Fur

Pet fur is excellent for protecting your pet, but it can start causing problems if it isn't groomed regularly. Pet fur can get dirty and the fur keeps that dirt and grime on your pet all of the time. With a haircut, your pet’s fur is easier to keep clean. Long fur can also get things caught in it like burrs, sticks, and leaves. These objects can make your pet very uncomfortable. Fur also tends to get matted when it is long and gets things stuck in it. Matting can also make it extremely messy for your pet to do his business, often resulting in fecal matter getting stuck in the matted fur.

Having pet fur around the house can also be a headache for you. No one wants a home that is coated in pet hair, but without grooming, this often becomes the case. Pet fur being everywhere makes it take much longer to clean your home, and it can cause added stress to your life. This is often especially true when the weather changes and pets begin to grow their summer or winter coats.

Preventative Measures

Grooming can help prevent several situations that breed disease. The fecal matter issue is just one such problem that can result from unkempt hair. Long, thick hair is very attractive to parasites like fleas and ticks, and a pet’s long hair will make it harder for you to see these pests. When you get your pet groomed, the groomer will detect things like skin problems, ear problems, etc., and can alert you to the problem. All of these preventative measures can result in a healthier pet.
