Pet Grooming

Benefits of Pet Grooming

There are many benefits of pet grooming in Alexandria.

  • Grooming feels good. Many pets like grooming because they enjoy being brushed and they like the way their coat feels when it’s fully cleaned.
  • Grooming can help pets stay comfortable when the weather warms. Pets with long coats can get hot in the summer time. Trimming your pet’s coat in summer helps your pet stay cool.
  • Your pet looks great when groomed! Grooming helps your pet look his or her best. This can help your pet prepare to meet company or even participate in an animal show.
  • Grooming helps older pets, particularly cats, who can’t groom themselves anymore. Sometimes joint and muscle stiffness prevent older animals from grooming themselves. Grooming your pet ensures that he or she is clean.

Pet Grooming Services Offered in Alexandria

At Fort Hunt Animal Hospital, we offer a variety of pet grooming services to our pet patients. Our services include:

  • Nail trimming and dremeling. Pets need their nails trimmed on a regular basis to prevent the nails from growing too long. Some pets get their nails trimmed while others prefer dremeling. At Fort Hunt Animal Hospital, we offer both services to pets.
  • Anal sac expression. Anal sac expression helps release the fluid from the sacs around the anus.
  • Ear cleaning and plucking. Pets who are vulnerable to ear infection often benefit from ear cleaning and plucking.
  • Bathing (including medicated baths). Bathing is an important procedure that keeps your pet smelling and looking his or her best. Our shampoos come in a range of types for different pet needs, including medicated and shampoos for sensitive skin.
  • Brush out. Brushing out helps your pet shed excess fur, which can help keep your home clean and prevent your pet’s fur from becoming matted.
  • Shave down. A shave down is the best way to remove a heavy coat of fur and keep your pet comfortable in summer.
  • Mat removal. If your pet’s fur becomes matted, we can remove the mats to ensure your pet’s comfort.

I have been using Ft. Hunt Animal Hospital for about 30 years and have always found the doctors and staff to be very caring. I appreciate the time spent explaining specific findings and answering questions. I never feel rushed.
