We spend alot of time indoors with our pets . Sometimes we notice good and not so good things about them. Is their coat in good condition? Long haired animals may get knotty in spring as the winter coat is lost and need a good grooming.
Ocassionally cats may need a light sedation in order to complete their groom, which is where we come in! If knots and matts are left without treatment they will irritate and twist causing discomfort.
Long hair on dog’s feet may get continually wet and cause skin infections so, again, best clipped in advance and may need treating from time to time with medicated antiseptic shampoos and creams. In summer it is a good idea to trim the longer hair on your dogs feet as hair traps grass seeds that migrate into the toes causing painful infections.
