For Cats & Dogs
Whether you have a cat of dog, pet grooming is an important part of the hygiene and emotional well being of your animal. Doesn't feel good when you get your hair cut or nails done? Imagine not having the luxury of choosing how and when you clean yourself. Your pets don't have that advantage. Sure they groom themselves with their tongue and paws, but without an opposing thumb they cannot grab a scrub brush and wash their back or the ability to reach hard to get at places. They need the care and love of their caregivers and pet grooming lets them know that they are getting their needs met.

An Important Part of Your Cat's Grooming Regime
There is very little worse for a family then living in a house with a cat that is suffering from a flea infestation. It's bad enough that your cat is always scratching and clawing at itself, even ripping large hunks of hair and flesh from its body in an attempt to rid itself of the biting insects. But unfortunately there is nothing to prevent the fleas from staying on the cat. If the problem is left untreated, you could quickly find that your entire house is full of fleas, and that you are being bitten nearly as often as your pet house cat.
