Giving your pet a bath is probably not high up on your list of favorite things to do. So, why not let our experienced professionals handle it? Bathing your animal is important for not only their health but for your own as well. It can be a tough job to handle however, especially if you have a large or skittish pet. We have the skills and the facilities to bathe even the most resistant cat or dog.
Why does your cat or dog need a bath? Your pet’s fur constantly picks up all kinds of yuck. Dirt, bacteria, fungi, and allergens such as dander, dust mites, saliva, and pollen cling to fur. These particles can irritate your pet, as well as their human family members. Some of the top reasons to have your pet bathed routinely are:
Bathing removes dander, dust and other allergens which can contribute to allergies for both your pet and you
Regular bathing can be helpful in treating skin infections including those caused by bacteria, fungi, yeast, ringworm or mange
Bathing may lessen or eliminate the need for antibiotic or antifungal treatments for infections by keeping fur clean
Regular bathing keeps your pets fur free from tangles, mats, and snags which can be painful if left unattended
You may be able to bath your pet in your own home, but there are a number of reasons to let us do it. We are stocked with special shampoos that treat a variety of issues from ticks or fleas, itching and irritation to allergies and skunk sprays. We also have the tub space for pets of any size, and the skills to calm pets who may be anxious about taking a bath. Additionally, all animals will have their nails trimmed as part of the bathing service. We also offer dematting services if needed, especially for those dog and cat breeds with longer fur.
