- Why should I have my pet professionally groomed?
While you might choose to take on the responsibility and commit to grooming your pet yourself, there are a number of reasons why you should consider having your pet groomed by a professional.
They have the right tools.
Professional groomers have a wide range of tools on hand, form clippers to skins products, adjustable grooming tables and pet bathtubs. They also keep a selection of special shampoos for dogs and cats who have allergies, fleas, ticks, or skin irritations.
They have plenty of experience handling dogs and cats.
Professional groomers know how to keep dogs and cats safe during the grooming process. They are experienced in handling senior pets, behavioral issues and more.
They take care of the unsavory tasks.
No matter how much we love our pets, when it comes to cleaning and grooming them, there are certain tasks that are far from pleasant. From shampooing muddy or skunked dogs, to removing fleas and ticks and cleaning anal glands, a professional groomer will get the yucky stuff done with a minimum of fuss – so you don't have to.
- How often should I have my pet groomed?
The proper frequency of grooming sessions depends on your pet's breed, hair length, and coat type. In most cases, though, regular grooming should be done about once a month.
- How long does a grooming session take?
The duration of a grooming session depends on the size of your pet, and the coat type and length. It also depends on what types of services are required to groom them. That said, most grooming sessions at our hospital take between one and two hours.
- How much does grooming cost?
The cost of grooming can change depending on you pet's size and breed as well as the kind of coat they have. If your pet has behavioral issues, this may also affect the cost. For a better idea of cost, please contact us for an estimate.
- What are the health benefits of professional grooming?
Grooming is a necessity to ensure your pet stays clean and healthy. This task can remove fur that’s been shed and has stuck to your dog’s coat, fleas, mats and ticks. Other health conditions can also be halted or prevented.
Since mats can cause knots in your pet's hair, they can lead to discomfort and pain, something every pet owner wants to avoid. A good brushing will help your pet's coat shine. Nails and claws can be trimmed to prevent curling and germ invasions.
Early detection of skin infections or problems is key to your pet’s health, and the groomer will know what to look for. They will find any inflammations, new lumps, infections, rashes or lesions that may be missed by even the most diligent owner. They may also catch an underlying problem, and the sooner these issues are found, the sooner they can be treated.
- How do your groomers handle fearful or aggressive pets?
Our groomers have expertise in handling stressed, anxious and aggravated animals. NJH instances where your pet is fearful or aggressive, we may recommend sedation during the grooming session. Most of the time, though, our groomer can manage fearful animals with some of the follow steps:
• A quiet, peaceful environment
• Offering treats
• Frequent breaks
• Opening a window or playing music
• Asking a dog to do something it knows (like 'sit' or 'shake')
