Health and Grooming Tips:

Regular grooming is one of the nicest things you can do for your pet. Brushing often and properly is essential to maintaining a healthy coat. It stops mats and tangles from forming, removes dead hair, dirt and burrs, and helps to distribute the natural oils needed for healthy skin. Your groomer can show you brushing techniques for your particular breed that can be used between visits.

Groomers are trained to watch for certain conditions and being up close and personal with your little one gives us the best opportunity. Here are just a few examples of what could be going on with your pet:

Never Use Human Shampoo on your Pet
Pet shampoos are formulated to maintain the correct PH balance for skin and coat. Humans have a PH that is acidic. Dogs PH level is more alkaline.

Many Pet owners will use human baby shampoo thinking they are using a mild shampoo on their dog. This and other human shampoos, household soaps will strip the top layer of skin.

The skin is then open to various kinds of microorganisms. If you were to continue the use of the wrong product, your pet will start to smell bad between baths because of the bacteria growth.

Pet shampoos are formulated to maintain the correct PH balance for skin and coat.

Remember...
Any discomfort affecting your pet should be watched and acted upon if signs don’t improve. Always ask your groomer if anything seems amiss. Your pet is very special and we care as much as you do.
