The Well-Groomed Pet

Grooming is an important part of your pet’s health.  Regular baths will keep your pet smelling fresh, and will give you time to inspect your pet’s coat and fur.  If your pet is medium or long-haired, regular brushing is essential.  Small debris and dirt can cause hair to tangle and mat.  De-tangling and de-matting brushes are available at any pet supply store.  Serious matting may require the attention of a groomer.

The St. Tammany Humane Society recently opened a do-it-yourself dog wash at their facility, and the Scrubby Puppy is located near Claiborne Hill.  Most veterinarians offer bathing services, and your veterinarian will be happy to talk to you about a grooming schedule appropriate for your pet.
