We know that dog parents are always looking for the best ways to give their pets the care they need to keep them healthy.

Pet parents should create a schedule with their veterinarian and groomer. Most breeds need to be bathed every 4–8 weeks and groomed every 6–12 weeks.

Even if your dog looks healthy, routine vet exams can help detect diseases before they become serious and allow for early intervention. Your vet will track your dog's development and answer questions about their overall health.

With Vital Care, your dog gets the care they need from our knowledgeable store associates, Petco-certified groomers and veterinary partners.
