Our specialists make sure that pets are properly groomed to keep them healthy and happy. From our base in Swindon, we recommend that all pet owners in the surrounding areas we cover regularly groom their dogs. 

Maintenance is essential to the well-being of your dog. The amount of care your dog requires will depend on its coat type, but even short-haired dogs can suffer from a lack of proper grooming. Even just regular brushing can help maintain your dog’s coat. Here, we look at a few of the many reasons to regularly groom your dogs, including:

  • Ticks and Fleas

  • Removing Matted Hair and Knots

  • Paws and Nails

  • Ear Health

Ticks and Fleas

One of the key reasons to groom your dog is to keep ticks and fleas away. Bathing alone isn't always enough to get rid of these intruders, but it will help locate and eliminate the ones you find. These pests can be safely removed, and extra action can be taken to exterminate them once you know they’re there.

Removing Matted Hair and Knots

At our dog kennels and cat accommodations in Swindon, we are accomplished at removing matted hair and knots. Our pet boarding service includes pet grooming, which helps relieve distress in your dogs. We also manage off-lead walking to keep them as stress-free and happy as possible. 

Brushing is a pleasurable experience for most dogs, so they feel like they’re receiving a massage when we groom them. Our skilled brushing and combing will remove any knots in their coats and help prevent future issues. Matting can pull on dogs’ skin, so removing it will make them feel better. Cleaning away dirt and debris will also make your dog more comfortable and rejuvenate their coat and skin.

Paws and Nails

Nail clipping is an often underappreciated aspect of dog grooming. Long nails are unsightly and can be uncomfortable and harmful for dogs. If overgrown, long nails can cause dogs’ stride to change and make them walk on the side of their feet. This is uncomfortable for dogs and can lead to lasting damage, such as arthritis. Cutting your dog's nails is essential, no matter how difficult it is.

Ear Health

Dogs’ ears should be regularly cleaned, especially for those prone to ear infections. Keeping your dog's ears clean will help avoid ear mites, infections and other issues. Clean ears will also make your dog feel more comfortable and at ease. At Goldborough House Kennels and Cattery Ltd, we ensure your pets’ faces, ears, and noses are clean as part of our pet grooming service. 

We pride ourselves on keeping all guests in our dog kennels and cat accommodations as healthy as possible. Covering, off-lead walking and grooming as part of our pet boarding service, you can have peace of mind knowing your pets will be happy and content at our Swindon-based facility.
