Grooming your pet at home can be a difficult endeavor. You might be tired of trying to track down your pet who is mad that you are trying to give him or her a bath, or perhaps you have been scratched while trying to do a nail trim one too many times. The good news is that a veterinarian can help you groom your pet with no scratches or bad feelings required.
If you would like to bring your pet to a veterinarian’s office for grooming or other veterinary care, don't be concerned. Dr. Ferreira at Ferreira Animal Hospital in Miami will help you manage pet grooming which includes trimming nails, brushing fur, and detangling mats.
Trimming Your Pet's Nails
You can trim your pet's nails at home, but it is often a better idea to bring your dog or cat in to let a professional do it. This is often the safest idea for you and your pet because it prevents him from scratching himself or from scratching you or other pets in your home. Pets are often easier to manage at the veterinarian's office. Many pet owners are surprised to learn that their dogs and cats are well-behaved when the vet tries to clip their nails.
Regular Brushing and Bathing
Brushing and bathing are sometimes required for pets with medium or long hair. Animals with shorter hair can also benefit from baths and brushing, but they may not require grooming as often. We can bathe and brush your dog or cat, to make sure that his or her fur is clean and healthy. Grooming sessions are also a great time to look for skin issues, including allergies and infections that can have a devastating impact on your pet's health and well-being.
Hair Tangles and Mats
Failing to remove matted fur can be troublesome for cats and dogs. When dirt and oil gather under the mats of hair, your pet could develop a skin infection. Mats are difficult to brush out at home, and they often require a special brush to work through the tangles. Instead of trying to cut through the hair at home, the veterinarian can take on the task safely so that your dog or cat is not injured.
