Keeping Your Pet Happy and Safe While You're Away
SKIN & COAT CARE
Skin care is very important in pets. The skin is the largest organ of the body, accounting for approximately 16% of the total body weight.
The skin has many functions to protect the body. It prevents water loss, protects the body from impact and friction injuries, keeps everything inside the body, allows for swelling, protects against ultraviolet rays from the sun, etc. It also helps regulate body temperature and provides the first line of defense against disease organisms gaining entrance to the pet.
Skin and ear infections are among the most common problems that occur in pets. These problems are also a major reason many pets are presented to a veterinarian for a diagnosis.
Check your pet’s skin often and look for sores, lumps, hair loss, reddened or bruised areas and external parasites (fleas, ticks, & lice). Brush your pet regularly to prevent mats and tangles.
Our Companion Lodge staff is happy to pamper your pet. A basic bath includes a nail trim and ear cleaning, as well as a spritz of the perfect pet perfume.
Basic grooming, sanitary cuts and shave downs are currently available throughout the week, by appointment.
