Our team at Hamilton Hills Animal Hospital can provide grooming recommendations and answer any questions that you may have about grooming and hygiene products. After all, having a well-groomed pet is about more than just looking and smelling great. Let’s take a look at why proper grooming and hygiene are important when it comes to your furry friends.
Keep Your Pet Clean
Proper grooming for dogs and cats helps your pet not only look and smell better but feel better as well. Matted fur can often lead to frustrated pets that will bite or scratch at the area in an attempt to cure that pain. Excessive scratching or biting can lead to bald spots in the fur or infections that will require treatment.
Certain breeds need to be groomed on certain schedules. What is the best grooming schedule for your furry friend? Contact our team at Hamilton Hills Animal Hospital and we will be happy to help you find a schedule that works well for your cat or dog. We can recommend grooming and hygiene products and provide tips on how to make the grooming experience more enjoyable for your pet.
Don’t Forget the Teeth
When it comes to hygiene, one area that often goes overlooked is a pet’s mouth. Unlike humans, pets don’t eat foods that have a lot of sugar. A good diet for your cat or dog will help it avoid cavities. However, this does not mean your pet can avoid dental care entirely. Many health problems first start as a dental issue that develops and causes damage to vital organs in the body.
Proper hygiene for your cat or dog means brushing your pet’s teeth now and then. On average, we recommend brushing a few times per week to keep your pet’s mouth healthy. The process might not be enjoyable for your pet at first, but with repetition, the experience should get easier. We can also recommend a few dental treats that not only taste great but help keep your pet’s smile healthy.
