As a responsible dog and cat owner, it is important to take steps to look after the health and well-being of your pet. Grooming will help your dog or cat look and feel their best. Routine grooming sessions allows the groomer to examine your dog or cat’s coat, teeth, eyes, ears, and nails for signs of problems. This includes issues such as flea and tick infestations, cut paws, ear problems, and issues with the coat, skin, and a variety of other issues that may not be immediately obvious. How often you need to groom your pet depends on their size, breed, and type of coat.

The Groom Room at Nutley Animal Hospital is a full service grooming facility. Services include puppy cuts, breed cuts, bathing, conditioning, blow dry, brushing, nail trimming and dematting of cats and dogs. Medical issues can be addressed with one of our veterinarians at the time of grooming.

Grooming will benefit your pet in many other ways, which adds to its importance. It is a great way for you to keep your pet looking well-kept. However, it is also important in terms of improving comfort for your pet. For instance, if your pet has a fringe over the eyes, it can be frustrating if it grows too long. When your pet is groomed, it can be trimmed so they can see properly. A matted coat can also be a frustration for you and your pet. Often long haired cats in particular need to be dematted. Proper grooming can have your dog or cat looking and feeling silky-soft again.
