The Groomer’s Role in Pet Nutrition and Supplements

You are what you eat. We all know that phrase, and it’s just as true for pets as it is for people. Every day in our salons, we see pets that obviously need help in the dietary department—the obese, the ones with skin issues and poor coats.

Let’s Talk ‘Dirty’

We have all heard the saying, “Nothing is certain except death and taxes,” and you may agree. If you make your living in the pet care industry, you can add one more thing to that list: dirty laundry. Towels, cage pads, pet beds, blankets, etc. You can’t get away from it.

National Rescue Round-Up Invitational

We groomers have a real soft spot for an underdog. Just walk into any of our country’s animal shelters and you will see that they are overflowing with the unwanted, unloved, and neglected—shelters full of underdogs.

The Holidays Are Coming!

Yes, the holidays are coming. Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas—the wonderful times of the year when we all shop, bake cookies, decorate, go to parties, and relax with our friends and family. Yeh, right… Not if you are a typical groomer. For most groomers, ‘tis the season to work, work, work with very little time for relaxing or anything else, but it doesn’t have to be all work and no play this year. It’s all in how you prepare for it.

The Groomers Emergency Assistance Fund

Last fall, Superstorm Sandy devastated the Eastern Seaboard of the United States. Earlier this year, parts of Canada experienced massive flooding, and a massive tornado tore through Oklahoma, carving a path of death and destruction as it went.
