While I have some experience as a fellow pet owner and former vet receptionist and as a part-time groomer (many moons ago), the advice, tips, and suggestions within this post are not considered professional.

Always consult a veterinary doctor or local groomer if you have any questions or health concerns regarding your pet or before performing any of the steps below if you’re uncertain. And always use pet-friendly and safe practices on your pet, including any shampoos or conditioners.

Tackle these pet-related spring cleaning chores at your own pace. Some may take longer than others or may need to be broken up, depending on the severity of the mess to clean up or your household’s needs.


While it’s essential to clean and maintain your home, it’s equally important to include pet spring cleaning chores as well.

Not only will doing some of the tasks on this 14 pet-related spring cleaning checklist be beneficial for your pet and your overall peace of mind, but it will also make spring cleaning your home easier.
