Grooming is an important part of your pet's health!

Grooming is part of your pet's overall health

Grooming is important for both wild and domesticated animals. Watch any animal documentary and you'll notice that this is a daily ritual. In groups, monkeys help groom each other to get rid of parasites and such and will even go so far as to comb their companions' and family members' hair with their nails.

For your pet, you are their family. They depend on you for food and they also depend on you for health, comfort and even, to a certain extent, their personal hygiene. This is why, for example, brushing your pet's teeth is highly recommended.

When it comes to grooming your pet, you might not have a lot of time, or you might need help. Or perhaps you've noticed some stubborn knots in your pet's coat, knots that are a little too hard to untangle with brushing alone.

Here at the Bridle Trail Veterinary Clinic, we can provide some cat grooming for your long hair friends that don't tolerate brushing very well. We do also have a few businesses in the Markham/Unionville area that we can recommend for dog grooming.
