The Main Benefits of Bathing and Grooming your Pets

Does your pet seem to be annoyed with mats in its fur or a dirty, itchy coat? Pets like to feel clean and fresh just like people do, and pet owners can help by bringing their cats and dogs into our office to be groomed. At Magnolia Animal Hospital, we recommend that dogs come in for bathing once every three months, and that all pets get regular appointments for other grooming chores such as claw clipping and mat removal.

Veterinarian in Ocala, FL Talks About Grooming Benefits

Brushing and bathing your pet helps to keep its fur smooth and glossy, but that's not the only benefit it will receive by having regular grooming appointments. Our furry patients enjoy a thorough nose to tail exam when they come in for their grooming appointments, so each time is like a mini exam, dedicated to making sure your pet is happy and healthy. In addition, our veterinarian in Ocala explains that some of the many benefits of regular grooming are:

  • Finding rashes and parasites such as fleas and ticks underneath the fur
  • Discovering ear problems such as infections and wax buildup
  • Keeping claws short so they don't crack, break or curl up
  • Regular dental hygiene checkups to make sure your pet isn't developing oral infections
