The Importance of Keeping Your Pet Well Groomed and Clean

Pet grooming is a necessary task all dog and cat owners need to take seriously. If a pet does not stay properly groomed, he or she can easily suffer from medical issues as a result. Our team at Central Texas Animal Hospital is committed to providing every aspect of quality health care your pet needs. That is why we provide the grooming your pet requires for a healthy life.

Why Pet Grooming Is Important

The type of grooming your pet needs all depends on his or her age, breed, and health. Failure to keep your pet clean can lead to a variety of difficulties for him or her:

  • Pets that have not been groomed are more likely to ingest harmful substances that may end up in their fur.
  • Your pet can also become sick from bacteria living on the coat.
  • A matted coat can be irritating and even painful to a pet.
  • Dogs with thick coats will need their hair trimmed for the summer to avoid overheating.
  • If your dog is prone to shedding, then seeing our professional groomer may be beneficial. Proper grooming can help decrease the level of shedding your dog experiences.
