Goal for the Day: Groom Your Pet
Some pets don’t really enjoy being groomed. Bertie does. He loves it. He’s not a fan of having his nails trimmed, however, and screams like a banshee if you so much as come near him with a nail clipper. For that reason, I let the professional groomers at his vet’s office trim his nails. I’d rather he scream at them than at me. However, he does get brushed every day and he really enjoys it. If your pet doesn’t enjoy being brushed, it still needs to be done. If you’re more comfortable, you can bring your dog or cat to a professional groomer. Like Bertie’s, many veterinarian offices have a grooming service. If not, you’re sure to find dozens in your area. It’s worth the slight expense to ensure your pet’s continued well-being.
