Why Groom My Pet?
All dogs benefit from regular grooming. Keeping your dog’s coat clean, by removing dirt and dead hair (preventing knots which may lead to skin irritation), helps to encourage new hair growth and reduces the amount of hair scattered all over your house. Regular appointments will keep your dog’s coat in tip-top condition.
As an owner you will want to take pride in your dog’s appearance and regular grooming will help your dogs to look their best. Brushing your own dog at home helps to create a bond and builds trust between you and your dog, at the same time, it helps to desensitise them to being handled. We will perform a health check on your dog, checking for fleas, lumps and bumps, discharge or any other abnormalities and report them to you. This is a great way to keep on top of your dogs’ health.
What our happy dog owners have to say...
Shaving Your Dog If It Is Double Coated
Many owners believe that shaving a fur bearing dog for summer will help it cope with the warmer weather. However, this is a very misunderstood coping mechanism. In fact, what happens is that your dog sheds his undercoat in summer, leaving the guard hairs to provide your dog with insulation, and allowing cool air to circulate near his skin. The guard hairs also prevent your dog from getting sunburned and reflect the sun’s rays to protect their delicate skin.
Why Is Matting Detrimental To My Pet’s Health?
Matted hair shrinks by the action of matting and can pull the skin taught leading to Haematomas (Bruising) due to the pooling of blood in the area of tight skin. Left long term, this could lead to sore and damaged skin and the associated health issues. The matted area can become a trap for moisture, fungus spores, bacteria, and flea/bug infestation.
Our 10 Point Health Check
At the commencement of all grooms, we complete a ten-point health check. This consists of a careful examination of your pet, allowing us to safeguard them during the grooming session or amend the groom to be more suitable (to avoid distress or injury). This assessment alerts us to any abnormalities, tender areas, reduced skeletal movement, signs and symptoms of infections or possible infestation and gastrointestinal upsets. Any concerns will be reported to you immediately if the issue would preclude the service from proceeding or, upon collection if more appropriate.
If we come across any issues, then we will inform you of this when you collect your dog and give you advice on what to do next.
