From puppies and dogs to kittens and cats, proper pet grooming is key to the health and happiness of any pet. If you're in the Marysville area, Cascade Veterinary Center, PS can help with all of your pet's grooming needs. We will advise you on the importance of keeping your pet clean from head to tail.
Bathing not only helps get rid of odor, dust, and other materials, but it also helps maintain healthy fur and skin. A good bath will also rid your dog or cat of any fleas and allow you to spot ticks. A veterinarian will often have specialized equipment and techniques that can be useful for even the most water-cautious pets.
Dental and Gum Cleaning
Proper dental and gum care by a vet are cornerstones of a pet’s overall health. A healthy mouth will ensure your puppy, dog, kitten, or cat can continue crunching their kibble and not offend anyone with their breath. Healthy teeth are also important because they help pets groom themselves.
Untrimmed nails are uncomfortable for pets. If they are too long, they can get caught on carpeting, clothing, and other objects. They can also injure other pets and family members. Long nails can also chip and split, leading to infections or injuries to the paw pads.
Cleaning your dog or cat's ears regularly helps prevent a build-up of dust, dirt, wax, and any other debris that may get in. Dirty ears lead to scratching which can lead to irritation and infections. Regular cleaning can keep this from happening.
Flea and Tick Grooming
Many owners do not think of flea and tick care as part of the grooming process. However, proper care is needed to combat these pesky parasites. They can wreak havoc on your pet’s skin and fur. Pets may scratch and nip at themselves to the point of drawing blood. A vet can shampoo your pet using veterinary formula shampoo that will kill those pests. A vet can also prescribe medication that will keep them away for good.
