Benefits of Pet Grooming
There are many reasons to bring your pet in for a professional dog or cat grooming.
We’ve listed a few of the most important benefits below:
- Maintains healthy skin and coat
- Prevents ingrown nails
- Treatment for hotspots and skin lesions
- De-matting and de-shedding
- Flea and tick checks and treatment
- Medicated shampoos for dry skin and allergies
- Keeps your pet cooler in the summer
- They will look and smell great!
In addition to these benefits, pet grooming can also be relaxing for animals. Taking your pet to the groomer can help your pet feel great — like he or she just came back from the spa.
What to Expect
All of our Grooming Requirements are the same as our Boarding Requirements - please make sure to review them and update your pet's vaccinations and tests as needed prior to their grooming appointment.
Our grooming packages include a bath with specially formulated shampoo tailored to your pet’s individual needs, as well as a haircut of your choice, a nail trim, ear cleaning, and anal gland expression.
Gooming is available by appointment only. Different pets have different needs, with some pets requiring a lot more trimming and brushing than others. We'll let you know if your pet has any special bathing needs at the start of the appointment.
Seiler Animal Hospital requires all pets here for grooming to be current on Rabies vaccination, Bordatella vaccination (dogs only), and to have had a harmful Fecal (intestinal parasite) examination within the past six months. This requirement is for your pet’s protection as well as the protection of others. If your pet is not current, we can schedule an appointment with one of our doctors right before your grooming appointment.
How Often Should My Pet Be Groomed?
Most pets should be professionally groomed at least once annually and certain dog breeds need to be groomed far more often.
Trimming hair around the face, ears, paw pads, and other areas will help prevent infection and irritation. Trimming the nails can also help prevent joint pain, and stiffness and reduces the risk of injury to pets and people alike
The length of time between appointments depends on:
- Type or breed of pet
- How fast your pet's coat grows
- Pet’s susceptibility to matting
- Time of year
How Can I Maintain My Pet’s Coat at Home?
Brush your pet's coat on a regular basis, but avoid excessive bathing. Bathing your pet too often can cause dry and flaky skin.
