Regular, Professional Pet Grooming Services in Raleigh, Wake Forest and Surrounding Areas
Good cat or dog grooming habits start early. Our veterinarians at Complete Pet Care recommend making grooming a habit with your pet when they’re young to get them accustomed to it.
Ways to prepare your pet to be groomed by a professional at our Raleigh or Wake Forest location include:
- Brushing their fur with a pet brush or comb
- Bathing them with pet shampoo and water
- Brushing their teeth and other dental care
- Trimming their nails when they begin to get too long, so your pet can walk comfortably
By performing this grooming at home, you help your pet understand that they can trust people to touch and handle their feet, ears and skin. You also help them learn that the act of grooming, although it causes discomfort, does not pose any danger to them. When you teach your pets these lessons at home, their experience at a pet grooming salon will be easier for them to understand.
The definition of “regular grooming” varies by breed and species. Examples include:
- Poodles and hairier breeds typically need to be groomed or trimmed every 4 to 6 weeks
- Other breeds with short hair, such as pugs or Chihuahuas, may be bathed less frequently
- Grooming a cat may include daily brushing
Our grooming staff, which includes professionals who have groomed many different types of pets, can work with you to determine the best grooming methods and schedule for your individual pet. We consider your pet’s breed, age, lifestyle and any existing skin or fur conditions and find a grooming schedule that works for you and them.
Treat Your Pet to a Spa Day
At Complete Pet Care, we offer spa services that include a warm bath and salon-grade shampoo. If you’re visiting for another service, such as a physical exam or dental cleaning, you can treat your pet to a spa day while you’re there. One of our professional groomers can add this service that will help your dog or cat feel relaxed, refreshed and clean.
