Generally 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 whenever we don’t groom our pets. If we don’t tend to our pet’s grooming needs frequently, we encourage a variety of issues that can result in expensive vet bills and difficult or even aggressive behaviour from your pet.
Long hair is the culprit of a variety of discomfort and skin issues. Hair hanging over your pet’s eyes can restrict vision altering the pet’s capacities and behaviour. When long hair is not brushed and washed regularly, pets often suffer matting and can load your pet with additional weight.
Matting of the hair can hurt and cause many skin conditions. Severe matting restricts blood circulation, pulling tightly on a 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 into the paw pads and triggering infection. Long nails can cause your pet’s toes to bend and build a walking disfigurement.
Double coating from irregular brushing brings about extra coating, creating 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 isn’t unusual for a pet to lose an eye from undetected grass seed.
Fleas, ticks, and mites are a few of the most common parasites that may be fatal to your dog and they thrive on dirty and untreated bodies.
