Pet Grooming

Pet Grooming Is Essential for Your Pet's Health

Some pets love being groomed, while others put up the fight of their lives against the nail clipper, brush, or bath. It is enough to make you dread grooming your pet, but grooming is a necessary part of keeping your pet healthy and happy. Our team at Firestone Animal Hospital in Downey can help you find ways to make grooming easier for your pet.

Grooming Maintains Skin Health and Comfort

Your pet's skin needs to be cleaned, and even though your dog might dislike dirt, or your cat may be great at bathing herself with her tongue, that isn't enough to keep the pet clean and get rid of things like excess dander. Bathing your pet helps keep the animal's fur and skin healthy and prevents the buildup of dirt and dead skin cells. Bathing also allows you or the groomer to see if there are any signs that something is wrong with your pet's skin, such as allergic rashes. Nail clipping is also essential to both protect your home and family. You don't want your dog to injure you by scratching your skin if it jumps up on you.

Grooming also includes dental cleaning and ear cleaning, and our veterinarian can show you how to do these things to help keep your pet's teeth and ears in good shape. During the grooming session, you're not just cleaning your pet. Grooming also allows you to check for subtle health problems because the pet can't tell you if anything is wrong until the condition has had time to develop.
