Your A-Z home grooming guide [eBook]

One of the most common questions pet owners ask is how to groom their pets at home and what this involves. This is encouraging, because pet grooming is essential for keeping our cats and dogs healthy and comfortable. It’s also a great way to bond with our furry friends and gives us the opportunity to check them over to spot any signs that suggest they need medical attention.

To get started, read our A to Z home grooming guide, which covers many aspects of grooming including brushing, washing, fur clipping and nail trimming, and speak to your veterinarian if you have any further questions.

From Anxiety to Dental Care and Zoonoses, download this free eBook to learn about all the benefits a good grooming session can give your pet.

Pet grooming promotes the health and wellbeing of cats and dogs and home grooming is a great way to give them our attention and a full body check. It’s important to make sure you feel confident about grooming your pet safely, so remember that professional services are often the best option for some procedures. If you notice anything unusual about your pet’s physical condition, or if your pet experiences a grooming-related injury, see your veterinarian.

You can also help prepare yourself and help your back pocket against potentially huge eligible vet bills for specified accidental injuries and illnesses with a pet insurance policy.
