The Importance of Regular Dog Grooming
Hillsdale Animal Hospital in Advance, North Carolina is a full-service veterinary hospital with a profound understanding of animal health and wellness. That’s why our team recommends regular grooming for your dog.
Benefits of Grooming
In addition to keeping your furry companion looking and smelling great, regular grooming helps to maintain healthy skin and hair, so your pet feels their best, too.
Beyond the aesthetic benefits, a regular grooming regimen by a trained professional monitors and intercepts potential health issues such as:
- Skin infections
- Hair loss
- Fleas, ticks, and other parasites
If your dog has health issues that require a specific grooming regimen, we will work with you to customize a plan.
How Often Should You Groom Your Dog?
At Hillsdale Animal Hospital, we recommend regular grooming appointments for consistency, starting at an early age so that your pup becomes accustomed to the process. This practice helps to mitigate anxiety that may surround bathing, brushing, or trimming.
We recommend most dogs receive professional grooming a minimum of once per year. For certain breeds, more frequent sessions may be necessary. The frequency of grooming appointments depends on the type of dog, the time of year, the speed of coat growth, and the propensity for matting.
We encourage pet owners to brush their pet’s coat at home on a daily basis. Bathing, however, does not generally need to be done more than one to two times per month, unless otherwise directed by your veterinarian, as too frequent bathing can lead to skin irritation or dryness. For more information about the best grooming practices for your individual pet, please call us or schedule an appointment. Our groomers can show you the best at-home techniques for your specific breed.
