Dog Grooming in Battle Creek

Tags: battle creek pet grooming

Although one of the main reasons people take their dog to be groomed is to keep them looking good, there are plenty of other reasons to get your dog or cat groomed, as well. Dog grooming is not strictly cosmetic, it can be good for their health and happiness as well as even helping to detect abnormalities of the skin or coat before they become a problem. In this post, we will look at a few of the benefits of professional pet grooming services.


There are certain breeds of dogs, especially smaller dogs that have a specific haircut. These dogs that you’re used to seeing look a specific way look very messy when they do not have the proper haircut and their hair continuously grows. It may seem like doing the grooming yourself is an easy task, but pet owners often find out, it’s not as easy as it looks!

Possible early detection of skin issues or diseases

This is one of the main reasons it’s a good idea to have your dog professionally groomed. Experienced groomers know right away when they see something that is abnormal on the dog’s skin. This can be a rash, discoloration, or even some kind of pest that has made its way onto your dog. Early detection can go a long way in treating your beloved pet.

Nail trimming

Most dog owners cannot stand trimming their dog's nails. Most dogs do not like it whatsoever and there is always a chance you will clip down too far and cut the quick. This makes for a lot of blood and a sore foot for your dog. An experienced dog groomer has the right tools and knowledge to make sure your dog’s nails are clipped safely.
