What can I do to reduce my dog's shedding?

Our hydro-surge bath system, along with our special conditioner will help reduce excessive shedding. We can also perform a technique called "carding" on short haired dogs. The supplement "Skin and Coat for Dogs and Cats" also helps reduce shedding.

My older pet has trouble getting around. Is there anything I can do to help?

Our hydro-surge bath gives your pet an initial 10 minutes of massage, followed by 10 more minutes during their condioning treatment. This usually gives pets some relief for arthritic joints. For maximum benefit, we recommend hydro-surge treatments in addition to the nutritional supplement, "Agility". We've seen significant improvements in many pets who follow treatment regiment.

Is there any way I can keep my dog from itching all the time?

Scratching can be the result of a number of problems, so pinpointing the culprit is top priority. The staff at Cathy's Pet Salon & Spa can easily spot and help eliminate a flea problem. Another culprit could be poor nutrition or allergies. Life's Abundant Premium Health Foods contain only fresh, natural, wholesome ingredients formulated to provide 100% complete nutrition in accordance with AAFCO feeding protocol. We also recommend Skin and Coat Formula for Dogs and Cats to help promote a thick, glossy coat and healthy skin.

How soon and how often should I have my pet groomed?

Your dog can be bathed or groomed every two weeks if the proper products are used. At Cathy's Pet Salon & Spa, we use all natural shampoos which don't strip the dogs natural oils. The shampoo is followed by a conditioning treatment for the skin and coat. A shower of clean water makes sure all the shampoo and conditioner is thoroughly rinsed out of the coat. Any shampoo or conditioner left in the dogs coat can lead to hot spots and itchy skin.

Cats don't need tro be bathed as frequently as dogs, but my Persian is bathed every 7-10 days because of an allergic human! She's also eating Life's Abundance Cat Food with Supplement, and takes Skin and Coat Formula occasionally. (She thinks whatever the dogs get, she should get.)

Can I help my dogs bad breath?

We recommend and use Oxyfresh oral hygiene solution for pets. Simply add 1 tsp to 1 qt of their drinking water and in approximately 3 weeks, your pets breath should start smelling fresher. There's also an oral gel which complements the solution for an overall happier mouth. This product is available at Cathy's Pet Salon, Spa & Doggie Daycare.
