Freshly bathed and trimmed pets look irresistibly cute and cuddly, but grooming is more than good looks. Maintaining your pet’s skin and coat plays a role in their overall health and wellbeing. Veterinary Medical Center of Indian River County’s professional grooming services make keeping your pet looking and feeling Best-in-Show beautiful easy and convenient—no matter their shape, size, or breed.
Well-Groomed Pets are Happy and Comfortable
Although many basic grooming tasks can be performed at home, regular professional grooming provides comprehensive skin and coat care. Our grooming services include:
Bathing and blow drying
Undercoat removal to reduce shedding
Breed standard cuts
Shave downs—not recommended for double-coated breeds
Cat grooming (i.e., dematting)
Anal sac expression
We all feel better after a fresh style and blow-out, and our pets do, too. The beauty of regular grooming is more than skin-deep:
Washing the coat removes airborne allergens that may irritate pets.
Clean, matt-free coats allow the skin to breathe, and reduce bacterial infections and irritation.
A clean, conditioned coat is less likely to form matts.
Regularly trimmed nails allow pets to stand comfortably in the correct posture.
Groomers notice ear infections, parasites, lumps, bumps, and changes in your pet’s skin and coat that may indicate underlying disease.
Routine anal sac expression prevents painful impaction and costly treatment.
