Regular grooming is essential to the maintenance of your pet's health. Keep your pet smelling and looking attractive, prevent parasites, and skin irritations.
Would you like to help your pet look and feel their best? Arlington Pet Care Hospital can help. Our trusted team of veterinary experts offer a safe and comfortable environment to groom your furry family member. We’ll take care of your pet as if they were our own, and when you drop them off at our facility, you can trust that your pet will always be in good hands.
While grooming should be done on a consistent basis, the frequency to which your pet needs to be groomed will depend somewhat on daily routines, coat type, age and general health. In addition, your pet will benefit from regular brushing to remove any loose hairs and dead skin cells, to rid the coat of debris and external parasites, and to disseminate skin oils that form along the hair shafts.
We recognize the importance of regular health and hygiene in our patients, and strive to provide customized grooming services that meet the needs of you and your pets. With consistent and proper grooming and brushing schedule, your pets can avoid common problems such as excessive shedding, matted hair, and skin conditions. Grooming schedules vary depending on your pet’s size and can be addressed with our grooming professionals.
We can assist in recommending the proper tools to use for your pet's coat type. If your pet suffers from allergies, our veterinarian may prescribe regular bathing as part of the treatment routine. Be sure to notify us of any special needs your pet may require such as specific shampoos or eye care and bring any of these products with you to your appointment. Please schedule your pet's appointment in advance, especially during the warmer summer months and near the holiday seasons.
