Grooming & Dental Care for Your Pet
How to keep your pet's coat and teeth in tip-top shape!
Let’s talk about brushing. The brush is a dog and cat owner’s best friend, and the groomer will love you even more than your fluffy kitty or pup for using one. When owners of household pets make the choice to be loyal brushers of their pets, they will be greatly rewarded. Your pet will look and feel better and it’s a great way to spend some extra quality time with one another. It is also a great way to inspect the skin and look for bugs such as fleas and ticks. When a pet is not brushed matting can occur and become disastrous for your pet's coat. Your pet is then brought to us to be fixed and to look great, but many times, unfortunately, it’s not possible. If the pet’s coat is left to become tangled and matted the best thing that we can do is a shave down to give you another chance to become a world-class brusher. Also, never try to remove the mats yourself with scissors. The skin is very close to the mat so you may unknowingly cut the skin while trying to remove the mat. One more thing to keep in mind - go easy. Remember your pet's skin is very sensitive underneath their coat.

Pet Dental Month, held every February, highlights the importance of dental care for our furry friends. Tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health conditions don't just affect people but may also be an issue for pets. Fortunately, regular checkups can help prevent these problems and also provide important benefits for your pet's oral and general health. Check out a few reasons why a pet dental exam should be on your calendar this year.
- 1. Cavities Aren't Always ObviousYour dog's teeth may look fine, despite decay lurking just under the surface. (Luckily, cats rarely get cavities.) Brown or black spots or holes usually appear only when tooth decay is fairly widespread. By the time you notice a cavity, it may be too late to save the tooth. Yearly dental examinations help your veterinarian diagnose and treat cavities when they're still small.
- 2. Small Problems Are Easier to Treat Than Big OnesWhether your pet has tooth decay, gum disease, an abscess, or another condition, prompt treatment is the key to resolving dental issues. Yearly dental examinations detect dental conditions when they're still fairly minor and less complicated to treat. Church Ranch is offering 15% off of dental procedures during the months of February and March. Call the office to get your pet scheduled for a free estimate!
