How Often Does My Pet Need A Groom?


As a pet owner, you may be wondering how often your furry friend needs their coat attended to. Unfortunately, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all answer to this question. Read below to learn when you should groom your pet, and why a professional groomer will enhance you and your pet’s quality of life.


The frequency of how often your pet will need grooming depends on a few important factors:

  • Your pet’s coat 
  • Allergies 
  • Your budget 
  • Your environment 


Be it thick or short, your pet’s grooming schedule will largely depend on the type of fur they’re rocking. A pup with a long-haired coat will need more regular grooming compared to short-haired coats. However, a good rule of thumb to follow is to simply check your pet for clear signs of dirty or matted fur - the most obvious sign being unclean smell. Don’t neglect your pet’s grooming needs, a healthy shining coat helps ensure your pet is leading a comfortable and healthy life. 


Why should you consider a professional groomer? There a host of benefits to consider when deciding to give your pet a professional grooming:

  • Professional groomers have all the right tools needed to tend to any coat your pet may have.
  • Dirty jobs such as anal gland expression and parasite removal are taken care of for you.
  • Professional groomers will trim your pet’s nails to help reduce any painful tears and cracks.
  • Groomers can help detect early signs of lumps and other skin abnormalities on your pet.
  • Your pet’s natural oils will be distributed through careful brushing, leaving your pet’s coat glowing with health.
