We LOVE pets and we LOVE to pamper them! Pets are not like people, they ARE people. At least, that is what those of us who share our lives with them are inclined to think. We take them on vacation with us, buy them gifts for the holidays and celebrate their birthdays. Many of us have more than one pet family member. In fact, the Zoomin Groomin team has a combined total of more than 30 pet family members!
Ask any one of us and we'll tell you that Zoomin Groomin was our calling. We began with a small office and one Zoomin Groomin van in the suburbs just south of Boston in 2004. And we've worked it from the ground up. We wanted to provide Pet Parents with a truly convenient alternative for all of their beloved pet's grooming needs. Whether St Bernard or Chihuahua; Siamese cat or tabby, pet comfort is our first priority. We get to know each and every one of our pet clients and spend quality time with them so that he or she looks forward to the pampering as much as we do!
We know first-hand what it's like to start, grow and operate a pet business. We realize the importance of having a corporate office "lifeline" that is just a phone call away. Our Zoomin Groomin owner community is supported through regular conventions, conference calls, a mentoring program and online discussions.
Have you heard the call? Do you have a passion for pampering pets? If so, talk to Donna, our CEO! If you think running your own pet business is your calling, learn more about becoming a Zoomin Groomin franchisee.
There are a number of reasons why pets develop hot spots - those painful, itchy, red, raw sores on the skin. Hot spots may be caused by fleas, mites, ticks, insect stings, stress, boredom and infrequent bathing. They can become infected, so it's important to monitor hot spots carefully. The worse a hot spot becomes, the more irritating it gets for your pet, and it can become a vicious cycle.
The incidence of hot spots can increase during the warmer months, when your pet is often outdoors. Romping in the yard, running through the woods or on the beach, even walking through town can expose your pet to insects of all kinds, dirt, sand, environmental debris and germs. One of the best preventatives for hot spots is regular bathing. Keeping your pet's coat clean is half the battle when it comes to keeping hot spots at bay. Regular bathing also gives you or your groomer a chance to monitor the condition of your pet's skin.
Bathing your pet once a week or once every other week and brushing your pet's coat in between will help ensure that hot spots don't develop or get worse. If your pet does develop hot spots that seem to be getting progressively worse, be sure to seek medical advice from your veterinarian.
At Zoomin Groomin, we use PURE OXYGEN gentle bath products to help keep your pet's skin and coat fresh and healthy. PURE OXYGEN leaves no residue, removes build-up, is natural and odorless. Our pet parents always remark how shiny and soft their pet's coat is after a Zoomin Groomin visit!
