Pet Grooming: Healthy Coats Mean Healthier Bodies
Your pet grooms themselves all the time, and you brush them several times a week. Shouldn’t this be enough? While routine brushing certainly helps with excess hair and promotes healthy shedding, it does not have the benefits of a professional bath. At Carriage Animal Hospital in Lombard, our professional groomers can help you take additional steps towards improving your pet’s hygiene and overall wellbeing. Pet grooming is not just about making your pet look and smell good; it also keeps your pet’s skin and coat in top condition. A healthy skin barrier and a coat free of dandruff, dirt and parasites can make your pet much healthier.

How Grooming Keeps Pets Healthy and Happy
You know how good it feels to keep clean and manage your personal hygiene. You may also understand how important personal hygiene is to your health. This close relationship applies to our pets too, who can enjoy many benefits from routine grooming appointments at Carriage Animal Hospital:
- A healthy, protective skin barrier
- A clean, supple coat free of dirt, oil, parasites, dandruff and excess hair
- Reduced incidence of skin conditions resulting from dirt or excess hair buildup, parasites, etc.
- Less itching and discomfort
- Fewer ear infections
- Regular nail trims promote healthy gait and foot posture
- Routine anal gland expression reduces irritation and can prevent potential for abscesses
