How often do we recommend grooming?

Well to answer that question let’s start by explaining a little bit about science. The keratinization cycle in both cats and dogs is 21 days. 

What is keratinization?

Keratinization is the process where new skin cells become hardened and rise to the surface. 

Why does that matter?

New skin cells rising up to the surface creating a layer of dead and dying cells on the surface that need to be removed. Without routine removal, the smell and dander build-up are the results. Simply put, if you don't want the dander and smell to come, grooming every 3 weeks is the answer. Something as simple as a good bath and/or brush out can really help loosen and remove the build-up that naturally occurs. Every pet is unique, however, and some may need care more often, or on the contrary, won't have as much build up in 3 weeks as the next pet. It all comes down to your fur kiddos and what suits them best. If you are ready to get your kiddo on a 3 week or more often rotation we have a maintenance program just for you. Check it out here.

My pet doesn't need a Haircut that often.

 We offer dog baths and cat baths. We can come out for the full shebang or just a freshen up.
