There are many benefits to grooming, not only to keep your dog “smart” but also to maintain a good level of cleanliness, and to promote your dog or puppy’s physical health and welfare.
Grooming can promote good blood circulation, help keep grease levels down (which can block pores) and remove loose hairs which will become matted if not brushed out regularly; this will cause soreness and other skin complaints especially in long haired dogs (this is not to say short hair will not require grooming too).
Brushing is beneficial for all dogs, to remove dead hair, dirt and dandruff and will spread the natural oils through the hair rather than block pores.
There are many benefits of visiting a professional dog groomer. A professional will enhance your dog’s coat and have the tools and equipment for better results. The professional will also look for any abnormalities, problems that may occur in ears, eyes, skin as well as undertaking nail trims, all these can easily be treated within the veterinary practice before the problem becomes worse.
The professional will have a specific trim for a breed of dog, to make them look their best.
It is important to make sure your groomer has a professional qualification and has the experience to groom your dog.
Within our practices our groomer has received the best possible training with a wide range of breeds and we are happy to announce that The Old Golfhouse Veterinary Group have a new groomer at both the Watton and Thetford sites. Please contact us for any enquiries and to book an appointment.
Grooming will keep your dog healthy and happy, going to a professional will save you time so you have more time to enjoy your dog or puppy.
