Bathing: Regular & Medicated
Treat your pet to a spa day (and give yourself a break)! We offer regular bathing services at Bellaire-Richmond Pet Hospital. We know that bathing your pets at home can be difficult and messy. We’re here to help you get your pets squeaky clean. Keeping your pet’s fur and skin groomed is a great way to keep their skin and coat healthy.
We also offer medicated baths for your pets that are experiencing conditions like allergies, dermatological issues, or flea infestations. Medicated baths are administered by a member of our Houston veterinary team to ensure that they are getting thoroughly treated.
Like bathing your pet at home, trimming your pet’s nails can be difficult. If you’re not used to doing this yourself, you can also inadvertently hurt them by trimming their nails too short. Leave it to the experts at Bellaire-Richmond Pet Hospital! We can trim your pet’s nails for you as part of our grooming services. Regular nail trimming is important to keep them from getting ingrown nails. We are also able to give you tips on best practices at home! Just ask for help next time you bring your pet in to our clinic.
Anal Gland Expression
Anal glands are a special gland in dogs and cats that produce a liquid substance that smells fishy. It is typically emptied during a bowel movement when functioning correctly. However, if the gland doesn’t empty for any reason, the liquid inside can thicken or become impacted. This can lead to discomfort and, ultimately, infection.
If your pet is experiencing pain while they attempt to have a bowel movement, it is possible they are having trouble expressing their anal glands. Another symptom to watch for is if your pet is rubbing or dragging their behind across the ground. At Bellaire-Richmond Pet Hospital, we can help. Our Houston veterinarians can express your pet’s anal glands and examine their function.
