Benefits of Getting Fido Professionally Groomed
October 15, 2020

Have you ever taken your pet to a groomer? If not, you may want to look into it. There are some great perks to bringing your furry friend to the salon. A local Fredericksburg, TX vet lists a few key benefits below. 

No Wrangling

Does your canine buddy run and hide when he hears the word ‘Bath’? Fido may enjoy feeling soft and clean, but he’s definitely not very fond of the process that gets him there. Some pups are very reluctant to get into the tub. You may have to coax and wheedle your pet into the bathroom, or even pick him up and carry him in. If your furry pal is a large dog, you may have a hard time getting him in and out of the tub. This will become more difficult as your pooch ages and becomes more delicate. 

No Mess

To be honest, doggy bathtime probably isn’t much fun for you, either. Bathing your pup may very well leave you with a messy bathroom and a tub full of dog hair. Plus, you also have to perfectly time that crucial moment when you put a towel on Fido as he gets out of the tub. Even if you’re pretty quick, your canine buddy will probably manage to shake water all over everything … including you. (This may be reason enough in and of itself to take your pooch to the salon.)

Medical Grooming

Some dogs need more care than just a basic bath. Fido may benefit from medical grooming procedures, such as anal gland expression or ear hair trims. Keep in mind that grooming needs vary widely from pup to pup. Ask your vet for recommendations. 

An Experienced Eye

Taking your canine pal to the salon will by no means replace bringing him to the vet. However, sometimes groomers do spot signs of trouble, such as swelling, sensitivity, or skin issues. This of course isn’t guaranteed, but it can still be very helpful when it does happen.

Clean Pup

The best thing about going to a groomer? It’s so easy! You get to just drop Fido off for his appointment. Then a short time later, you can pick up a clean, fresh-smelling pup who’s ready for cuddles. Talk about convenience!
