Why do pet groomers need insurance?

Along with the risks of any small business, pet groomers face the added liability of pets being injured or becoming sick while in their care. Pet grooming insurance can cover legal expenses, veterinary bills, and property repairs after an accident at your salon or mobile dog grooming business.
