Many of us don’t think about how often we shower, bathe, and cut our hair, until we remember that grooming is a necessary part of caring for our pets. While animals are not bathed daily and some rarely, if ever, require a clipping of their coat, grooming is essential to the health and well being of your pet.
Some animals even have typical ailments for their breed that can be controlled with regular grooming maintenance and care. For example, a number of dogs tend to get hair inside their ears, which can lead to infection. One aspect of grooming handled by Colleyville Animal Clinic is the removal of ear hair.
Along with grooming comes dermatology, a practice involving the care and treatment of the skin. Like people, our pets can have any number of skin disorders, ranging from dry skin and dandruff to allergic dermatitis. Our veterinarians can offer assistance in diagnosing and treating such illnesses before it becomes a fatal or life-altering problem.
Perhaps your long-haired dog spends a great deal of time outside or in the water and tends to get matted hair. Clipping of mats and combing are other grooming services we offer as part of a regular or specialized maintenance schedule. Regular grooming includes:
You can choose any or all of these services to make sure your pet is as beautiful outside as he or she is on the inside. Specialized cleanings are also available, for those instances when your pet gets into mischief and is sprayed by a skunk or is attacked by some equally nasty odor. We are gentle, kind, and caring, just as we would be with our own pets, and we return your pet happy, healthy, and beautiful.
