How Often Does My Pet Need Grooming?
Wondering whether regular bathing or regular grooming services are the right choice for your pet? Our staff will consider breed, age, and lifestyle when making recommendations. For most of our patients, we suggest scheduling a grooming appointment every six to eight weeks. We’ll find a routine that works for you and your pet.
How Often Should My Dog Be Groomed?
For most dogs, daily brushing is sufficient accompanied by regular baths for cleanliness. It is important to use the correct brush for your dog's fur. If you have questions regarding which pet brush would be best for your dog, contact our skilled Durham groomers today. Depending on your dog's fur length and quantity, professional grooming may be suggested every 1-3 months. Of course, some dogs require more or less.
Is Grooming Required More During the Summer?
Our Durham groomers can confirm that your dog's grooming needs may change in different seasons. Hair does not grow the same all year long, and growth is often determined by the outside temperature or time of year. Their hormones, overall health, nutrition and medication can also impact hair growth.
Typically, dogs will grow a thicker coat of fur in the winter and begin shedding that "winter coat" in the spring. Our talented dog groomers in Durham can help you discover if your pet's fur growth or overall coat is healthy or warrants a deeper consultation with one of our veterinarians.
Six Dog Breeds that Require More Grooming Than Others:

- Portuguese Water Dog
- Siberian Husky
Why Should I Groom My Dog?
Many people express the sentiment, "my dog is shedding again" or "my allergies are bothering me." Sometimes, grooming can help with those things. By scheduling routine grooming appointments at our Durham animal hospital, we can minimize some shedding and potentially alleviate some allergy issues as well. While we can't keep your dog from shedding, we can make it a bit more tolerable! Your carpet will thank us.
