Benefits of Dog grooming

Everybody knows we should take action, but what does grooming do for your dog besides making them look pretty?

In general terms, a clean pet is a happy pet. No hair in the eyes, clean fur and skin, clipped nails and clean teeth all lead to a pet that is comfortable and better behaved.

But adverse, serious side effects occur when we don’t groom our pets. If we don’t have a tendency to our pet’s grooming needs on a regular basis, we encourage a number of issues which can result in expensive vet bills and difficult or even aggressive behaviour from your dog.

Long hair is at fault of a variety of discomfort and skin issues. Hair hanging over your pet’s eyes can restrict vision altering the pet’s capabilities and behaviour. When long hair is not brushed and washed regularly, pets often suffer matting and can load your dog with additional weight.

Matting of the hair can be painful and cause many skin conditions. Severe matting restricts blood flow, pulling tightly on the pet’s skin and making a straightforward pat painful. In some instances, matting can be so severe that it restricts body movement resulting in deformity.

Overgrown nails can be very painful, with long nails growing in to the paw pads and triggering infection. Long nails can cause your pet’s toes to bend and make a walking disfigurement.

Double coating from irregular brushing leads to extra coating, triggering your pet to suffer heat stress.

Grass seeds will never be easily detected if you aren’t hands-on with your Dog grooming coral springs, undetected grass seeds can lead to abscesses and severe infection. It isn’t unusual for a pet to reduce an eye from an undetected grass seed.

Fleas, ticks and mites are some of the most frequent parasites that may be fatal to your dog and they thrive on dirty and untreated bodies.

Dental disease can result in bad breath, teeth loss, reduced appetite if untreated can cause organ harm to your pet’s heart, liver and kidneys. Find out about dental health.

All of these issues can be detrimental to your pet’s mental wellbeing, because of the discomfort and pain they can cause. By maintaining your pet’s grooming needs frequently you can optimise your pet’s physical and mental health.

Great things about pet grooming include:
A pet that looks and smells nice on a regular basis, plus your best friend will get rid discomfort, feel good and behave well.
Reduced threat of eye, ear, skin, teeth and nail infections, ensuring your dog is clear of pain and disease!
