Mobile Grooming

Sylvano Bitencourt - Friday, May 20, 2016

Last November, I launched my mobile pet studio with the intention to broaden my market appeal to those who find it difficult to bring their pets for timely grooming. Since then I have learnt that my current clients express an overwhelming interest with this new service.

 


 

With mobile pet studio, I provide better experiences that my brick-and-mortar studio can ever deliver. Not only that I now make it possible to those who struggle to find time to go to my physical studio, I also offer less stressful grooming experience to pets with separation anxiety personalities. Your pets will not be away from home and they will not be caged at all. And for older pets, mobile grooming provides a fantastic solution for avoiding sore joints that can result from transportation to and from grooming facility.

 

After a thoughtful consideration, I have decided to be completely mobile. To my current clients, this decision will be an added benefit to you. I am providing the same great service I always strive for, and I will bring the best grooming experience for your pets at the comfort of your home. I truly believe I have added a great value to all of you. And there will no extra charges for all my current clients and those who become my client by June 25th, 2016. To all new clients afterwards, there will be reasonable surcharge to come to your location depending upon the distance I will need to travel.

 

Should you have any question, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

 

Why Nail Trimming is Important

Sylvano Bitencourt - Saturday, March 12, 2016

 

Trimming nails is an important part of the grooming process to keep your pet comfortable and healthy. Nails that are allowed to grow too long can become ingrown, especially the dewclaws located on the inside of the leg since they don’t get worn down. The claws of older cats that don’t have the outer sheath removed by normal sharpening behavior are also at increased risk of becoming ingrown and painful. A few cats are born with extra toes, termed polydactyly, and those claws are also at greater risk to become ingrown. In addition, excessively long claws are at increased risk of breaking, which in turn can lead to infections of the toe. Finally, long claws can lead to deformities of the feet as the claw causes the toe to turn and not align normally.

 


As a general rule the nails should be trimmed if you can hear the feet click on the floor when they walk, or about every 2-3 months for indoor dogs that don’t spend much time on pavement. Plan on checking your pet’s nails monthly to see if foot care is needed.

 

All puppies should be trained as early as possible to accept handling of the feet and restraint for nail trimming. Giving treats for calm, relaxed behavior while the feet are being handled will make for pets that will better accept nail trimming in the future.
