Dog Bathing FAQs
Read the answers to our most frequently asked questions about pet grooming at Brogli Lane Weaver & Alexander Animal Hospital.
- What do bathing services include?
Based on your pet's needs, we can provide a combination of the following during a bathing session:
- Bathing: shampoo & conditioning
- De-shedding treatments
- Doggy perfume & cologne (with owner’s permission)
- Why should I have my dog professionally bathed?
Even if you've historically taken on the time commitment and responsibility of grooming your dog yourself, there are some good reasons to get the job done by a professional groomer:
They have the right tools.
Professional groomers have a wide range of grooming tools at their disposal, from specialty skin products to appropriately sized bathtubs designed specifically for pets. They also keep a selection of specialty shampoos on hand for dogs with allergies, skin irritations, fleas and ticks, and even for dogs that have been sprayed by skunks.
They have plenty of experience handling dogs.
Our professional pet bathers have the skill and equipment needed to keep your dog safe during grooming. They are experienced in handling seniors, animals with behavioral issues, and more.
- How often should I have my dog bathed?
The frequency of bathing sessions your dog will require will vary based on your pet's breed, and coat type, and lifestyle. In most cases, though, regular bathing should be done about once a month.
- How long does a bathing session take?
The duration of a bathing session depends on the size of your dog, and the coat type and how dirty they are to begin with. All dogs having a spa day with us need to be dropped off between 7am-9am and picked up between 2pm-5pm.
- How much does bathing cost?
The cost of grooming varies depending your dog's breed and size, and how dirty they are. Whether your pet has any significant behavioural issues can also affect the cost. For a better idea of cost, please contact us for an estimate.
- What are the health benefits of professional bathing?
Grooming is a necessity to ensure your dog stays clean and healthy. This task can remove fur that’s been shed and has stuck to your dog’s coat, fleas, mats and ticks. Other health conditions can also be halted or prevented.
Because mats can cause knots in your pet’s hair, this can lead to pain and discomfort - something every owner wants to prevent. A good brushing will also make your dog’s coat shine. Their nails will be trimmed to prevent curling and invasion of germs.
Early detection of skin infections or problems is key to your dog's health, and the groomer will know what to look for. They will find any inflammations, new lumps, infections, rashes or lesions that may be missed by even the most diligent owner. They may also catch an underlying problem, and the sooner these issues are found, the sooner they can be treated.
- How do your bathers handle fearful or aggressive pets?
Our groomers have spent many hours handling stressed, anxious or aggravated animals. In cases where the animal is especially fearful or aggressive, sedation during the bathing session may be recommended. Most of the time, though, our groomer can manage the animal with the following steps:
• A quiet, peaceful environment
• Offering treats
• Frequent breaks
• Opening a window or playing music
• Asking a dog to do something it knows (like 'sit' or 'shake')
Our bathing services are available daily and include shampooing and blow-drying.
Please have your furbaby to us between 7 am and 9 am. You may pick up after 2 pm. Our bather will call you with an update after he bathes your pet.
Benefits of Bathing
There are several sanitary and dermatological benefits to regular bathing sessions for dogs. Bathing:
- Removes dirt & odor for cleaner skin and coat
- Softens and conditions coat
- Reduces shedding
- Helps treat and reduce symptoms of any allergies & skin conditions
- Helps us monitor your pet's health
