4 Tips For Professional Pet Groomers

4 Tips For Professional Pet Groomers

From nail clipping to a spa treatment, there are a variety of pet grooming services one can offer. While it is important to upkeep its appearance, ensuring the pet’s well-being is equally and if not, more important. From using suitable products to executing proper handling, here are four tips to keep your furry customers safe and happy.

Using of suitable products

As most pets have sensitive coats that require proper handling, the choice of grooming products are essential. While it is encouraged to trust the professionals, don’t be afraid to voice any concerns or to ask any questions related to the products. Pet groomers in general, should be using soap-free shampoo.

For pet owners who are relatively more particular, do also consider purchasing the specific product from a retail store or online pet shop in Singapore before bringing it to the groomer’s.

Providing proper drying equipment

To avoid moisture-related skin inflammations, it is important to pay attention to the fur drying procedure. While most groomers will use towels, air-drying, kennel dryers, or forceful blowers to dry your pet’s coat, air-drying remains the safest procedure while kennel dryers may result in overheating. Do note that the air-drying process may take up to several hours, where forceful blowers may present as an alternative.

Executing proper pet handling

A professional groomer will understand that every pet is unique and therefore requires different handling approaches. A gentle but firm restraint on the grooming table should be implemented, to allow for easy handling.

Using of protective equipment

A meticulous task that requires plenty of attention, it is important for a pet groomer to don on protective equipment including gloves and masks. It is also essential to employ equipment such as anti-slip mats and closed-toed shoes to ensure your personal safety.

An essential routine, it is all the more important to ensure the safety of the pets during grooming sessions. While you may go out of their way in ensuring your pet’s well-being, it is always better to be safe than sorry.
