Pets are a billion dollar industry in the US. This not only includes food, toys and specialty items, it also takes in grooming. The healthiness of your pet is important and picking a dependable and well established grooming service to provide your pet with satisfactory attention is vital to your pet’s wellness.
Professional pet grooming services are supposed to present your pet with a comforting grooming experience that is as stress free as possible. Pets going in to be groomed for the very first time can be nervous and edgy and to help lessen the apprehension, some salons utilize music and videos as a way to make the atmosphere more pet friendly and to put the pet at ease.
The service that is provided should comprise combing and brushing of the fur, removing mats and snarls from the fur, washing and conditioning the coat, cleaning of the ears and nail trimming. There may be extras that can be included including aromatic soaps, shampoos and conditioners but ensure you have consulted with your vet concerning any allergies your animal may have before using these sorts of items.
Check the costs for grooming and be certain of what is involved in the cost of the service. Pets grooming can be costly depending on the manner in which the company arranges their fees. Be certain to ask beforehand how the price is established and whether it’s by the size of the pet or the state of its coat. Animals that have extensive matting and tangling of the fur and need extra time might have an extra charge to the basic grooming price. Make certain to check your pet prior to leaving to ensure you were not charged for mat removal and that there are no mats buried below the long hair of the animal’s coat.
If you have a pet with serious matting, let the professionals attend to the situation and do not attempt to cut the mats from your animal yourself unless you are a skilled groomer. The extra cost is worth it to know your pet won’t mistakenly be cut and caused undue pain as a result of your inexperience. In some circumstances, it’s not only essential but better that the pet be shaved so fresh hair can grow instead of subjecting them to a prolonged clipping session particularly if your animal doesn’t have a patient nature.
