What You Should Know About Dog Grooming

Grooming and bathing your dog is for more than just looks, it can help with identifying health issues and managing conditions affecting the skin and fur. Today, our vets discuss dog grooming services and how our professional groomers in Oceanside are here to help.

Professional Dog Grooming

Along with the standard preventive care, your dog will greatly benefit from regular grooming to help keep their fur clean and healthy. Regular professional grooming sessions also keep the nails, coat, and skin looking and feeling great. But were you aware that grooming offers benefits beyond the obvious positives of looking and smelling fresh?

Our vets highly recommend including grooming services as part of your dog's regular professional services throughout the year. This offers several benefits for your pooch, from healthier eyes and skin to early detection of potential health problems.

How does grooming benefit your canine companion?

Here are just a few benefits of bringing your dog in for a regular grooming session with our professional animal groomers in Oceanside:

Cleaning Your Dog's Paws, Nails, & Feet

Your dog may grow excessive hair between their toes and paw pads, depending on the breed. The groomer with trim the fur in this area to keep mats from occuring.

Keeping Your Dog's Fur Smooth, Shiny, & Healthy

To distribute the natural oils throughout the coat and keep it shiny, every dog's coat should be brushed regularly. Regular brushing can also healthy skin. When your dog's coat is properly brushed, dead hair, dirt, and debris are removed. Completing this task can also prevent mats, which lead to knots in your pet's fur and can cause discomfort and pain. 

It also ensures even distribution of topical tick and flea preventative medicine, providing your pet full coverage against these parasites. 

Opportunity to Recognize Health Concerns

Your dog may experience skin and health issues that can result in bald spots, growths, lumps, bumps, and cuts. During the grooming session, our groomer will do a thorough inspection of these, paying special attention to the ears, eyes, mouth, teeth, and paws. This is another step in the process of ensuring problems are detected as soon as possible, so they can be treated early. 

Attentive Grooming for Dogs with Special Circumstances & Needs

Some pups have behavioral issues. Senior pets may also have special physical needs as they age, while others are aggressive or fearful and need their groomer to use special tactics or practices while styling their fur. Our pet groomer is experienced in handling dogs with numerous and will be able to keep your pooch safe during a grooming session. 

Caring For Your Dog's Ears

Some dog breeds are more likely to have hair grow deep within the ear canal. If this is true for your pet, their ears will need special attention with a monthly ear cleaning to help keep infections or irritation from occurring if bacteria gets trapped inside the ear.

We can let you know if we see redness or discharge so you can decide whether to have our vet determine whether the area is infected. 

Management of Skin Conditions

We use a range of special shampoos for dogs with skin sensitivities, irritations, allergies, and parasites such as fleas and ticks. Our professional dog groomers even have shampoo for dogs that have been sprayed by skunks.

Proper skin care is vital, especially since many pet parents are often unaware of different skin conditions. 

How Tools Help With Proper Grooming

From adjustable grooming tables designed specifically for pets to special clippers designed to get those errant nails and hair, our pet groomer has several tools on hand to make grooming safer and easier. This gives our clients peace of mind and saves you the time and frustration of effectively doing the job yourself. 

Proving a Relaxing Grooming Experience

A dog's grooming routine should include monthly baths to ensure their coat is clean. We can complete this task in our special tub. We have different-sized tools we use based on dog breed and needs that can help us get this task done faster than you could at home, reducing the stress for your pup, and eliminating time spent and frustration for you.

 These are just some of the benefits of professional grooming sessions. If you have specific questions or needs, we will be happy to address them.
