Ear and eye cleaning
Regularly check your pet’s ears for dirt or a wax build-up. Gently clean their ears with a damp cotton ball, but be careful not to let water drip into their ears to avoid infection.
Some pets prone to ear infections may benefit from an ear cleaning product recommended by your vet. Keep an eye out for eye discharge or tear staining, which can be cleaned with a damp cloth.
Dental care plays a key role in preventing the build-up of plaque and tartar, which can lead to smelly breath, gum disease and tooth decay. Brushing your dog’s or cat’s teeth and incorporating dental chews into their daily routine can help. And once your pet becomes an adult, they’ll need an annual professional dental clean to remove plaque and tartar and check for cavities. Ask your vet if they offer the Best for Pet wellness plan to get a $250 discount on dental cleaning.
When grooming your pet, take your time to make it a relaxing and rewarding experience for them. Always use positive reinforcement with plenty of treats and praise. If you or your pet gets stressed, don’t hesitate to take a break. Grooming should be a special bonding time you both enjoy.
