Beattie Pet Hospital - East Hamilton is pleased to provide basic medical grooming for dogs and cats. Our sister location, Beatie Pet Hospital - Brantford, is able to offer full-service grooming.
At Beattie Pet Hospital - East Hamilton we are able to offer a basic medical grooming for all breeds of dogs and cats at our clinic. Certain breeds—especially those with long hair that mats easily—may need assistance keeping themselves clean. Animals that are older or have physical disabilities may also benefit from a medical grooming service. If your pet is having trouble taking care of regular grooming, it can be a sign of an underlying health issue. Be sure to mention this when you schedule an appointment. You can also call us anytime to discuss your concerns.
At Beattie Pet Hospital - Brantford, we strive to provide all of the services that will contribute to your pet’s top health and wellness, and pet grooming is no exception. We provide pet bathing, nail clipping, and brushing. Naturally, grooming helps your pet look and smell fresher and feel better, but pet grooming is about much more than simple cosmetics—it also makes a positive impact on your pet’s health and wellness!
Our Brantford pet groomers are pet-loving professionals and they work together with our veterinarians to ensure your pet’s top health. They are especially trained to be able to notice any skin, coat or claw problems that may point to deeper health concerns that need to be checked out before they advance. They also know that regular pet grooming is an important way to prevent problems before they start.
For example, a pet with a matted, knotted, soiled coat and dirty skin is a welcome target for pests like fleas, ticks and other parasites. As we all know, fleas and ticks are not only itchy and annoying, they can cause serious diseases in both pets and their people. Furthermore, mats in a pet’s coat can also become uncomfortable, causing him or her to scratch, lick and nibble at the area, making it damp. Because the moisture has no way to escape, the irritation and inflammation can become worse and sores and hot-spots can develop, creating the potential for infections. This is one of the reasons why regular brushing is so important.
Additionally, cat owners know all too well the results of cat claws on their furniture. And even the most affectionate, well-intentioned dog can accidentally scratch his or her humans when the nails get too long. Not only that, but nails that are not regularly clipped can curl back in on a pet’s food pads, causing wounds and bleeding.
We understand that many pet owners do not have the time to regularly groom their pets at home—and we also understand that it is hard to get some pets to sit still for the experience. In the case of nail clipping in particular, we know many pet owners who are afraid (and rightly so) of clipping too far down and causing bleeding. Our Brantford pet grooming team can handle all of that beautifully. We know how to calm even the most fidgety pet for a pleasant and successful grooming experience that he or she will look forward to on repeat visits. This gives pet owners peace of mind knowing that every aspect of their pets’ health is being looked after by professionals. And if we notice any problems during a pet grooming visit, we will alert you and our veterinarians immediately.
