The Medical Importance of Grooming Your Pet

Being gorgeous takes work. But there's a lot more to pet grooming than making Fluffy look fabulous. The important thing is to keep her clean and healthy.

Grooming is an important part of preventive medical care, and regular bathing at our Columbia, SC Animal Hospital will help prevent serious medical problems — not to mention make your pet look, smell and feel better. By having your pet groomed regularly, you can help detect skin infections and growths before they become a problem.

Ambassador Animal Hospital is happy to offer limited dog and full-service cat grooming, and a typical visit includes: bathing, brushing and combing the coat; checking for infections and parasites; trimming longhaired pets if needed; and nail trimming.

Every breed of dog and cat is different, so the grooming for each pet is unique. We can recommend a grooming routine for your pet so you know exactly what to look for and how often. If you have a young puppy or kitten, acquaint him or her with grooming early to ensure an easy process from the start!
