Full Pet Grooming Services
Pets are an important part of our lives, and we want them to feel good and look good. Part of that equation is pet grooming. Finding a groomer that you and your pet trust isn't always easy. A great way to find someone you trust is to bring your pet to its veterinarian for grooming. At Brighton Veterinary Hospital in New Brighton, MN, we are proud to offer grooming services for your dog or cat.
Why Grooming Is Important
Grooming your dog or cat is more than just a haircut. It is an essential part of your pet’s health maintenance. When your pet has excess fur, it becomes more prone to matting and allergies, and may develop skin conditions, including cysts and ear infections. It is during the grooming process that many health problems are discovered. In severe cases, pets can have fur matting that is tightly wound and can actually lead to problems with blood circulation. Getting your pet groomed routinely can help avoid these problems.
How Grooming Works
How our groomer helps your pet depends largely on the type of pet you have, and whether it currently has excess matting. Grooming can either consist of basic grooming or full grooming.
Basic grooming includes shampooing and conditioning, blow-drying and brushing out, nail trimming, ear trimming, and anal gland cleaning.
Full grooming includes everything from basic grooming, with the added service of shaving or styling.
Benefits of Grooming at the Vet
There are health conditions, like cysts and other growths or skin infections, that could be hiding under your pet's fur that you have not discovered. While some outside groomers may catch things that are signs of health concerns, they do not have the specific training to do so. There could be health conditions present that still are missed. When your pet is groomed at Brighton Veterinary Hospital, it is already at its vet's office and concerns can be addressed quicker.
