May News at The Groom Room

Dog of the Month

This is a super wire haired fox terrier. She has had a special grooming technique used on her coat called "hand stripping". What this actually means is that her long, dead hair has been removed bit by tiny bit, revealing bright new top coat beneath it. This is a slow and skilled process, but done properly feels great for the dog. We also gave her a complete re-style after her bubbly-bath to bring out the true Fox Terrier look: lean, focused and ready to pounce!

Ticks Fleas & Worms


With the recent surge in day time temperature there has also been a surge in the "nasties" which plague our dogs. We have ticks in Cheshire, if you find one on your dog and are not sure how to remove it, ask your groomer or vet for help.

There are effective monthly Spot On treatments for dogs, some of which help prevent tick as well as flea infestations in one treatment. They are well worth while as ticks can carry a nasty bacteria which causes Lyme Disease.


Fleas breed very rapidly in warm weather. They live and feed on animals and people, and lay their eggs in carpets as well as dog bedding. If you regularly treat your pet with an anti flea treatment you can prevent the whole life cycle of the flea getting a hold in your house. Monthly spot-on treatments or tablets are very thorough. Flea sprays and shampoos are also a valuable addition to the armoury.


Roundworms are commonly found in dogs, they live and feed in the dog's gut . Some wormer treatments are much more effective than others so take advice from your groomer or vet on worming products. You should worm your puppy monthly for six months and your adult dog once every three months.
