Brushing, Baths and Grooming
All animals need some sort of grooming care. Short haired dogs and cats may need no more than a nail trim once a month and an occasional bath. Long haired dogs and cats may need a monthly trip to the groomer. There are many different styles of combs and brushes and many different shampoos available. It is best to not use human shampoos on your pet because their skin pH is different than ours and it can cause irritation and drying. Although we do not do grooming at our facility, we can trim nails and wash pets that have short hair. Please call SouthPaw Animal Clinic if you have any questions concerning the grooming or bathing needs for your pet.
