Regular grooming is essential to your pet’s good health. It should start in puppy or kittenhood so your pet learns to accept and even enjoy it. Grooming involves coat brushing and care, but at Yonkers Animal Hospital it also includes attention to ears, eyes, teeth, mouth and feet. We can also provide special medicated baths as well as flea baths and dips.
The benefits of proper grooming include:
- Fewer skin, eye and ear problems
- More effective external parasite control
- Fewer shedding problems
- Fewer unsightly, malodorous mats
- Earlier detection of potential health problems (parasites, lumps, ear and eye infections, dental disease, weight loss or gain, and abnormal coat conditions)
- Acclimation to handling
