Many people underestimate just the benefits of professional grooming is for their pets. They may think grooming just refers to giving your pet a quick brush every now and again so they don’t look completely disheveled on their next walk.
But in reality, pet grooming is a very important task.
1. Great Pet Grooming Is Great Pet Care
An incredibly important reason to keep on top of your pets grooming is that good hygiene is intrinsically linked with better health.
An uncared for coat quickly leads to matting of the fur, those tight and uncomfortable knots of hair. However, these matted patches of fur are more than just an eyesore; they can potentially be a severe health risk for your cute pet.
Matted fur can lead to skin irritation and infection, block feces from exiting the body correctly, and in very serious cases, constrict blood flow to the limbs. There have been cases where extreme matting has led to amputations in dogs. So grooming is no joke!
2. A Comfy Pet Is a Happy One!
Imagine if you went without a wash for weeks. Try and focus on how uncomfortable that would make you feel in your own skin. What you have imagined is close to how it may feel for an unwashed puppy or kitty!
No pet wants to feel dirty, just how we humans are the same. Keeping them clean and fresh can do wonders for the mood of your pet, and help you out by preventing cat or dog dandruff getting all over the house!
It’s also important to realize that proper pet grooming doesn’t start and end with the coat! Overly long nails in your cat or dog can also cause serious discomfort and will need to be trimmed down to an acceptable level.
3. Keeps Your House Free Of Those Certain Smells
Let’s face it. We all have smelled that signature dog smell permeating the home before. Sadly, the smell is usually not as sweet as the dog causing it!
While there could be several reasons why your pet may be stinking up the place, proper grooming is usually the first step to prevent it from happening again in the future.
And it’s good to realize that as unpleasant as the smell may be for you, it’s not going to be enjoyable for the pet causing it either! Sorting it out is a win-win for both parties.
