Benefits Of Grooming

Everybody knows we should take action, but what does grooming do for your pet 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 tend to our pet’s grooming needs frequently, we encourage a variety 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 number of discomfort and skin issues. Hair hanging over your pet’s eyes can restrict vision altering the pet’s features 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 hurt and cause many skin conditions. Severe matting restricts blood circulation, pulling tightly over a pet’s skin and making a straightforward pat painful. In some cases, matting can be so severe that this restricts body movement resulting in deformity.

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

Double coating from irregular brushing contributes to extra coating, triggering your dog to suffer heat stress.

Grass seeds will never be easily detected if you aren’t hands-on with your grooming, undetected grass seeds can result in abscesses and severe infection. It is not unusual for a pet to lose an eye from an undetected grass seed.

Fleas, ticks and mites are some of the most typical 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 in case untreated can cause organ damage to your pet’s heart, liver and kidneys. Find out about dental health.

Many 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 on a regular basis you can optimise your pet’s physical and mental health.
