We know how important it is to have peace of mind when it comes to leaving your beloved fur family members in the care of others. Services like dog and cat groomers are no exception to this, especially with all of the news we see these days on negative experiences people have had with groomers. That’s why we’ve put together this list of some of the best and most reputable groomers in the Space Coast, so you can rest assured your pets are in the best hands!
Why does my pet need a good groomer?
You may think that because your dog or cat doesn’t have long hair, they don’t require grooming services. When you have a specialty breed, you obviously need a good groomer who can give them the appropriate clip and services. Groomers offer much more than just hair cuts and baths, however. Important services for your pet’s health, such as nail trims, eye cleaning, treating skin conditions, and even cleaning ears, can all be completed by your local groomer.
Many of our pets, dogs and cats included, aren’t so cooperative when it comes to some of these procedures which make doing them at home difficult and even dangerous. Reputable groomers are specially trained to safely and effectively complete these services that our pets need for their overall health.
Another skill that high-quality groomers hold is a deep understanding of animal behavior. This will ensure that your groomer will be able to tell if your pet becomes stressed, or is exhibiting discomfort in any way. Vet groomers are always recommended for those pets who just can’t handle the stress of a proper grooming experience. They can even use sedation, if needed, to ensure the safety and comfort of your pet during their groom.
Not only does this give your pet the most relaxing grooming experience possible, but it can also help identify any underlying health concerns they may have. As you can see, a great groomer can make a huge difference in the health and happiness of any pet!
