When was the last time your furry friend was professionally groomed?

 If you love your dog as much as he loves you, you want your furry friend to be groomed, clean and parasite free. The simplest way to ensure that he remains huggable, is making use of a professional grooming parlour.

Professional grooming offers a number of important health benefits for all breeds of dogs and cats and even rabbits. Proper grooming can be the difference between a happy pet and a miserable one.

Qualified professional groomers are fully experienced with handling nervous or anxious pets and can help them relax and enjoy their grooming experience.

 Consult the professionals

  • The most important benefit is that regular grooming keeps your dog’s skin and coat in good condition.
  • Professional groomers know what they are doing and will ensure that your dog gets the best treatment, including the best shampoo and conditioner for his coat.
  • Let them know if your dog has skin problems or allergies, and they will assist where they can or refer you to a veterinarian.
  • They will immediately notice if there is a problem with your dog’s skin or fur. It could be something small that you wouldn’t normally notice, or it could be more serious. They will alert you if it is necessary to consult with a veterinarian.
  • Remember, it is your responsibility as a dog owner to treat your dog against ticks and fleas, but the grooming parlour can also assist with professional tick and flea solutions.
  • Dogs can become extremely matted very quickly, making it uncomfortable for them to move and can even be painful. Regular brushing and grooming prevents the coat from matting, keeping the dog comfortable.
  • Excess coat, especially in double-coated dogs, can cause them to overheat more easily which could be dangerous.
  • Lumps and bumps can be picked up as your dog’s body will be felt all over. A groomer will also pick up if there might be an eye or ear infection, or problems with his teeth.
  • Even your dog needs a manicure now and then, as his nails can become overgrown and begin to curl over. This can eventually affect the way he walks and this could be painful for him. A professional groomer knows exactly how to cut his nails without causing any discomfort.
  • When you don’t have much time on your hands and need to get a million things done, rest assured that your dog will be pampered while you run errands. On your return, he will be well groomed and ready to go home.

 Choosing a parlour

Imagine going to a grooming parlour for the first time through your dog’s eyes. All the sights and smells, not to mention strange people doing all sorts of weird things to you! Your dog will get used to his visits to the parlour if he is handled with care – and it’s up to you to choose the right one. Here’s some advice:

  • First visit the parlour without your pet. Ask if you can look around and see if you are comfortable with the way they work.
  • Look at how the staff handle the pets – if you are not satisfied with this, find another place.
  • Is everything clean, with no bad smells lingering in the air?
  • Make sure there is no way your pet will be able to escape from his grooming session.

At Family Pet Centre’s grooming parlour, you can rest assured that professional people will take care of your beloved furry friend.

 QUICK TIP

Get your dog used to being handled and brushed from puppyhood. This will keep you from ending up with a dog who is scared of his grooming routine.
