Regular grooming and coat care is important for all pets, but especially for those with longer coats or sensitive skin.
Grooming not only plays a vital role in removing dead hair and dirt (preventing your pet from getting irritation or matting in the coat) but it is also a valuable opportunity to check your pet's skin for fleas and ticks, lumps and bumps or any sores that you may otherwise not have spotted.
It is also a good time to inspect your pets claws to see if they need any trimming. This shouldn't be the case for most animals, dogs will wear their claws down as they walk on a pavement for example, but if you do feel their claws are getting a little long you can make an appointment with one of our vets to give them a trim for you.
Getting your pet used to being regularly groomed from a young age is key.
