Why Spring Is the Ideal Time to Groom Your Pet
Why Spring Is the Ideal Time to Groom Your Pet

Spring is finally here in Tucson — and for many pet owners, this means enjoying more time outdoors. From going on regular walks with your canine companion to spending afternoons at the dog park or hanging out on the patio with your feline friend, there are plenty of activities to partake in now that it’s warming back up.

This is also a great time to bring your pet in to see our professional grooming staff here at Wags & Whiskers Pet Salon. We recommend spring pet grooming for dogs and cats alike, and our Sahuarita pet groomers specialize in providing your pet with a relaxing and stress-free experience.

Your Pet is Shedding Their Winter Coat

Many breeds of dogs (and some cats) will naturally build up what’s known as an “undercoat” during the cooler months of winter. When springtime rolls around, that coat will begin to shed — which is no fun for anyone, and creates a mess in your home. By bringing your furry friend in for a professional spring pet grooming, we can give your pet a bath to loosen up that shedding fur, followed by a thorough brushing/grooming treatment to remove it.

This will not only reduce shedding but will help your pet stay cooler and more comfortable as temperatures continue to rise well into summer.

More Messy Outdoor Pet Play

When it’s warmer outside, your pet likely spends more time outdoors. This is a good thing, as regular outdoor exercise and activity is good for your pet’s health. However, it can also mean that your pet gets dirtier — especially on wet and muddy days or when your yard is dry and dusty. As a result, many pet owners find that they need to schedule more regular spring pet grooming appointments to keep their pets clean and looking their best.

It’s Time for a Spring Nail Trim

If your pet spent a lot of time indoors during the cooler winter months, now is also the time for a nail trim. Our professional groomers can quickly and safely trim your pet’s nails (both dogs and cats) so you can save your furniture, floors and car from their wrath.

Ensure a Healthier Coat for Your Pets

Spending more time outdoors (combined with the sudden change in weather) can wreak havoc on your pet’s skin and coat. At Wags & Whiskers, we use natural/organic pet products to ensure that your pet’s skin and coat are well taken care of without the use of harsh chemicals or ingredients you can’t pronounce! The end result is a refreshed coat, healthier skin, and a happier pet.

These are just a few of the top reasons to consider bringing your pet into Wags & Whiskers Pet Salon for a springtime pet grooming appointment. Give us a call at (520) 405-0077 to schedule your pet’s services with us or book your appointment online today. We look forward to providing you with the quality grooming services your pet deserves—not just this spring but year-round!
