Professional Dog Grooming in Indianapolis IN

Here at Paws & Play, we will take care of your dog and groom them so that they're more comfortable and healthy! While many people try to groom their pet on their own, there are several reasons why you should take your pet to a professional dog groomer including. 

  • A dog groomer will have access to some of the best and healthiest shampoos, soaps, and other grooming products on the market. In many situations, it may be too expensive for the average consumer to buy these on their own. However, you will get to take advantage of these if you take your pet to a professional.

  • A professional will know exactly how to keep your dog calm and patient during the process and will be able to effectively clean and groom your pet.  

  • A groomer may be able to notice some areas of health concern that you can then discuss with your veterinarian. This could result in catching an illness or other health issue before it develops into a more serious condition.  

Why is Dog Grooming Important?

Regardless of the breed, age, or size of your dog, grooming is one of the most important aspects of caring for your dog. Whether you are grooming the dog yourself, or bringing it to a professional to groom for you, this is something that needs to occur at minimum once a month. Not grooming your dog can result in the dog becoming aggressive; depressed; change in eating habits; and/or behaving abnormally. It could also pose serious health risks such as matted hair resulting in fleas and ticks nesting on your pet and causing them to become uncomfortable, or ill. If their nails are kept uncut they will eventually curl and could cut their paws causing an infection, or worse. A dog has feelings and is sensitive, similar to a human being. This is why grooming your dog is one of the most important things you can do to make them feel loved and well cared for, so you can enjoy more time with them bonding, cuddling, and exploring.

One of the most important aspects of taking on the responsibility of owning a pet is grooming it yourself; or bringing it to a professional groomer that is trained and certified to properly groom dogs of all breeds, shapes, and sizes. They will bath your dog; clean their ears; brush their teeth; check their gums; trim their fur; cut their nails; and check on the general appearance of the dog to be sure that everything appears normal. If there are any concerns they will refer you to an in-house veterinarian, or one they work closely with for a check-up. These are some reasons why going to a professional is always recommended if you are unfamiliar, or nervous about grooming your pet at home. If there is something out of the ordinary with your dog it can be quickly diagnosed, treated, and taken care of.
