How often should my pet be groomed?

Trena was born and raised in the Bay Area, California.  She moved to Las Vegas in 1995 where she started working in the Veterinarian industry in 1998.  She opened her first grooming shop in 2004.  In 2005 Trena was nominated for and recognized as a Small Business Person of the year in Las Vegas, Nevada by the Nevada Microenterprise.  She sold her business in 2006 to relocate her family to Boise, Idaho.  She began working at the Critter Clinic in 2007 as a receptionist and technician trainee/groomer.  As of 2012 Trena is now the full time groomer.  Trena would love to meet your pet.

How often should my pet be groomed?

The question of how often your pet should be groomed should be determined by a few different factors: your pets breed, size and what kind of hair coat your pet has. Dogs that have a longer hair coat will have to be groomed more frequently than shorter coated dogs. Also the thickness of the coat will also need to be considered. The thinner the hair the more likely it will matt. Which means they will have to have their hair brushed every day, twice daily or getting a shaved down, will reduce the job of brushing your pet.

Dogs that have a medium to short coat but have a thick undercoat during the winter will also need to be brushed and groomed more frequently especially when they are blowing their coats. Bathing these dogs once to twice a month just to get all the under coat out will drastically reduce the hair volume coming out.

Pay attention to your pet's breed and research how often they should be brushed, if they need their ears plucked, nails trimmed etc.

The Skin & Coat of your pet

Your pet's skin and coat are a reflection of his overall health. A clean shiny coat and healthy skin are signs of well being. A dull, matted, dirty coat is more than just poor grooming. These conditions could be a sign of illness or poor diet. Keeping your pet's coat clean and well-groomed enables you and your groomer to notice skin problems, lumps, and other changes in your pet's condition before they become serious.

Ears

Grooming includes cleaning the ears and removing excess hair. Especially in dogs with droopy ears.

Feet and Nails

Long nails are not only noisy, they are painful. Grooming includes trimming or filing your pets nails, and removing excess hair that can trap foreign objects in the fur between the pads. Foot comfort is as important for your dog as it is for you.

Trimming

Clipping, hand scissoring, and specialty trims require knowledge, experience, and skill. Our groomers are fully qualified, and talented and experienced.
