One of the necessary tasks for pet owners is grooming their furry friends regularly. Our team at Eaton Animal Den in Eaton offers a wide range of pet grooming services. All of our services are catered to providing quality veterinary care for your pets. Let’s look at some of the questions we run into when it comes to keeping cats and dogs properly groomed.
How Long is a Pet Grooming Session?
The length of a pet grooming session varies between each pet. Usually, it comes down to the size of your animal, and the condition and the length of your pet’s hair. However, on average, a typical pet grooming session will take between one and two hours. The time frame can change depending on the type of pet grooming services that are requested.
How Often Should My Pet Be Groomed?
Typically, your pet should be groomed every two to four weeks. This is dependent on your pet's breed, size, current health condition, and level of interaction with strangers. An owner's personal relationship with their pet is often the best resource for knowing when is the right time to set a grooming appointment.
If you are a new pet owner, some general signs that your furry friend needs grooming include when your pet looks shaggy, has trouble seeing through his bangs, and spends more time clawing your furniture. These are good indicators that your pet needs hair and skin treatment. If you are still unsure, speak with one of our staff members to learn more about the signs that your pet needs grooming.
Can I Stay with My Pet during the Grooming Process?
Unfortunately, you cannot stay to watch your pet's grooming session. The main reason being if your pet can see you, he will become anxious and restless during the session. The groomer works with sharp instruments and could nick him if he moves too much. Having you away from his sightline helps to lessen your pet's stress and excitement levels.
How Old Should a Puppy Be Before Receiving His First Grooming?
A puppy should usually receive his first grooming following his first set of booster shots. In most cases, puppies are scheduled to have those shots between 12-16 weeks old. Before your scheduled appointment, you may want to introduce your pup to the sights, sounds, and smells of our facility. It will bring down his stress level and allow your pet to become more familiar with our staff and the grooming process.
