Mobile Dog Grooming: Extra Special Services
Mobile dog grooming is a great service to have because you never have to leave the safety and security of your home. You can just take your pet out to the mobile groomer and have grooming services completed. Some groomers also provide extra special services in addition to the standard grooming services. These services are a huge boon to pet owners because they would otherwise cost much more if performed by a veterinarian.
A lot of dogs and cats with long fur experience the occasional matting in their fur. It can be a source of irritation to the skin and develop into a nasty looking lump that never resolves itself. Vets only cut out mats if your pet is coming in for some serious skin issues or lumps under the flesh but you can get de-matting service from a mobile pet grooming service.
Very careful clipping and combing will remove the matting without hurting your pet. A full clip to the rest of the animal's coat will make the spot where the mat was less noticeable, too. Then you only need to comb or brush your pet's fur daily to reduce the chances of new mats forming.
Dogs are too curious on their own when they are outside. They are far more likely to be stuck with porcupine quills and skunked by a skunk than cats. However, the occasional kitty left outside might be skunked as well.
If your pet comes indoors reeking of a skunk, chances are he/she got too close to one. You will not be able to get that smell out but a groomer can. It takes just one session with a dog deskunking or cat deskunking package to make your pet smell more like him/herself again.
Anal Gland Cleaning
Dogs and cats have anal glands. These glands produce a foul liquid of a watery to mucous-y texture that aids in the defecation process. The glands need to be cleaned every couple of months (or more often for long hair breeds). If the glands are not cleaned, they can become impacted and leave your pet in pain. Mild discomfort in the anal glands also causes your pet to scoot his/her rear on the carpet for relief.
A vet can do this, but it is quite costly. A trained and licensed dog groomer can also clean and express anal glands for a fraction of the cost. When your mobile dog groomer does it then your pet is close to home and is more comfortable with the process.
