Clean pets are healthier pets. A fur coat can hide various issues, including skin conditions, dead, loose hair, dirt and oil buildup, and parasites. While it’s necessary to bathe your pet after they’ve rolled around in dirt or something smelly, routine baths can improve your pet’s well-being.
At Emergency Pet Hospital of Orlando, we offer pet bathing services to promote better hygiene habits for owners to follow. Your pet’s internal health is extremely important, but keeping them healthy both inside and out is ideal.
Why Your Pet May Need A Bath
Aside from washing off accumulated dirt and oil, baths can also help with parasite removal, allergies, dandruff and fungal infections. Medicated shampoos can soothe itchy skin, help heal a damaged skin barrier, and make your pet feel more comfortable overall. Bathing can go a long way towards treating skin conditions and giving pets much needed relief.
Furthermore, pet bathing gives us an opportunity to check for parasites, lumps, bumps, hot spots and other hidden problems.
