    Pet Groomer

    grooming a catPet Groomers give cats, dogs and other small animals a bath, clip their coats, trim nails, and clean ears. Grooming an animal includes a shampoo, combing or brushing, and blow-drying of the coat, as well as cutting or clipping the coat to remove any mats and tangles.

    Goooming a cat for the show ring, as in the photo on the right, takes special care and talent.

    Groomers need to be very patient with animals, and not have any allergies.

    There are not many courses available to learn how to become a pet groomer, but vocational schools may offer a course in grooming. Usually, this is an on-the-job learning process, and the veterinary clinic or grooming salon where you work will train you.
