Professional Dog Grooming has many advantages. Not only does grooming keep your pet pleasing to look at, grooming also has health advantages.
A dog's ear canal goes deep into the head structure. Fresh air must be able to penetrate deep enough to keep the ear canal dry. With excess moisture, bacteria can grow, causing odors and infections. An experienced groomer can remove dirt and overgrown hair blocking the ear canal.
At Norma's Corner a complete groom includes inspecting and cleaning the ears if needed.
Dogs and cats are instinctively hunters. They attempt to disguise or conceal their scent to allow them to successfully stalk their prey. They don't mind if they smell like cut grass or your prize petunias. At times they may even go to the extreme of smelling like horse or cow manure.
At Norma's Corner we bathe your pets with environmentally friendly and organic shampoos to remove scents humans find offensive.
Animal hair (depending on the breed of dog) secretes oil to increase insulation factors of fur and repel water. These oils also collect dirt and dust. Frequent bathing is not harmful to pets and reduces dirt transferred to rugs and furniture.
Some animals have sensitive skins or allergies. Veterinarians may suggest or prescribe specific shampoos. We have a variety of shampoos suitable for all skin conditions.
Animal fur, like human hair, grows from follicles in the skin. Fur covered in oils and dirt can become tangled. Neglected tangles can increase in size and tightness forming mats. Fur contained in mats pull on the follicles clumping the skin and causes pain.
Conditioners and frequent brushing help prevent tangles and mats. However, once formed, mats are removed in a dematting process using specialized tools. Severe mats may have to be shaved to remedy.
Brushing also has a bonding effect. Spending the time to brush your pet shows you care for them and they enjoy the attention.
We have a variety of organic conditioners for different types of fur and skin conditions.
Professional dog grooming has advantages. Our groomers and bathers are trained to notice discrepancies the pet owner may overlook. While the owner may notice their pet is constantly scratching, the scratching may be a symptom caused by an infestation such as dry skin, fleas or Cheyletiella.
Fleas like dark areas and can hide in cracks, rugs and furniture. If your pet has fleas you may have to fumigate your house twice to prevent reinfestation. The fumigation does not kill the eggs and the second fumigation must be done before the existing eggs become adults that will lay more eggs.
Cheyletiella also known as walking dandruff is a mite that resembles dry flakes of skin. While Cheyletiella is not usually found on humans, they can bite people. The bite is not dangerous but can resemble bites from a black fly which is very itchcy and can become sore.
Norma's Corner has shampoos and conditioners that can safely remedy skin and fur conditions safely and effectively.
