Why Shave My Pet?
The term matted is used when the hair is tangled and a comb cannot be run through.
Shaving is a more comfortable procedure for removing mats.
Any underlying skin condition or flea problem is more noticeable and more easily treated when the hair is shorter and not matted.
Frequent brushing can eliminate the need for shaving
The Key to Fleas and Ticks is Prevention
- Administration of a flea and tick preventative all 12 months of the year for pets living in Maryland
- Use medications designed to repel fleas and ticks
- Use medication containing an insect regulator designed to inhibit and stop the life cycle of the flea and tick
