Grooming appointments are so much more than a chance to pamper your pet and have them smell and look their best. Pet groomers can be the first to notice potential issues, so when you take your pet to be groomed, it is always a good idea to ask the groomer if they saw or felt anything that might need inspection from a vet. Of course, if a groomer finds a serious issue, they will most likely tell you without being asked, but asking might prompt them to tell you about small things, like flakiness on the skin, or small patches of redness and irritation that could indicate that your pet needs special shampoos or even a quick check-up to ensure there are no skin issues at work. If your groomer does raise an issue that they suggest could be serious, book a virtual vet appointment with Vetster for advice and guidance about how to proceed.
