Benefits of Pet Bathing

While your pet’s fur and skin can withstand mud, rain or snow, your cat or dog is prone to many skin issues that also affect humans. Cats and dogs can experience dry skin, irritation, dandruff and, in some cases, skin infections. While you may not notice many mild symptoms, regular pet grooming can change and prevent common skin issues.

Our staff can pamper your pet and identify and treat many common skin issues. Regular grooming offers various benefits, such as reducing excessive shedding, matting and hairballs. Some additional benefits of visiting Palmetto Veterinary Hospital for grooming include:

  • Training: While grooming can be fun, caring for all your pet’s needs often includes less pleasant steps, including treating pets with fleas and ticks, mitigating odors after pets interact with skunks and cleaning anal glands. Our team has the necessary training to complete these tasks correctly and safely.
  • Experience: Some pets have experience with regular grooming and respond well to the process. Others may require more careful or soothing approaches. Our groomers have extensive experience handling dogs of all breeds, sizes and temperaments.
  • Tools: Our team has a wide variety of tools to help your pet look their best, including specialized shampoos, brushes, clippers and scissors. Our full-service grooms can also encompass what you may not want to do at home, such as nail trimming. We also have access to everything we need to lift and carry large dogs, preventing you from experiencing an injury.

The staff you choose should have everything listed above. The team at Palmetto Veterinary Hospital is well-equipped to provide full grooming services, and we love our furry friends as much as you do.

Different Types of Bathing Services

Bathing and Drying

Bathing your cat or dog with quality shampoo promotes a softer coat and removes dirt and odor. Generally, your pet should receive a bath once a month to every two to three months. Leaving your dog’s hair wet can lead to matting, making your furry friend appear unkempt. Our groomers use dryers to blow out excess hair and keep your pet’s coat healthy.

Nail Trimming and Filing

Long nails can catch on carpeting and other furniture. We can use safe trimming tools and procedures or file the length down for greater control. We will ensure your pet’s nails are short enough to walk and play without difficulty while being careful of their quicks.

Gland Expression

Gland expression can relieve discomfort and reduce the risk of infection. If your cat or dog cannot express their anal glands on their own, our team has the training to clean them safely, preventing them from leaking or bursting at home.
