Benefits of Dog Grooming

Dog grooming is a lot more than making your canine family member look pretty. In reality, a dog needs to be properly groomed for far more reasons. Our veterinarian located in Starkville wants all dog owners to realize just how important dog grooming is for the health and well-being of your animal.

Aside from providing the obvious aesthetic benefits, getting your dog groomed regularly has actually been shown to:

  • Decrease risk of "hot spots" and other skin infections caused by bacteria
  • Minimize the risk of infestation of fleas, ticks, and other parasites
  • Improve the comfort of your dog

At our veterinary clinic, our professional groomers can tailor their grooming sessions to meet the specific needs of your dog. We provide grooming procedures and products that consider your dog's age, lifestyle, type of hair or fur, skin sensitivity, and overall health. Our grooming services also include nail clipping. Maintaining an appropriate nail length is important for your dog's health since it can reduce the risk of your dog's nails being caught or infected. Trimmed dog nails also help to keep you and your family members safer, too.

When Should My Dog Be Groomed?

It's important to ask your veterinarian how often your dog should be professionally groomed. Some dogs require a full groom as often as every 6 to 8 weeks, while others may require grooms less frequently. Our team can give you specific suggestions based on your dog's needs, as well as tips on how to keep your pet's coat and skin clean and healthy in between grooming sessions.
