Dogs need groomed just like humans need to bathe. In fact, groomers generally recommend that your fur kids be groomed every 6 to 8 weeks, depending on the size and needs of your dog. We know you love and cherish your pet’s wellbeing, which is why we are at the forefront of pet health and safety.
Let’s take a look at 8 reasons why grooming is good for your dog.
#1. It Prevents Matting
Matted and tangled fur is uncomfortable and can potentially cause pain to your pet. This matted hair creates the perfect environment for the breeding of fleas and ticks. Fleas and ticks can lead to big problems for your pet, so stop these pests in their tracks by eliminating their breeding ground.
#2. It’s Sanitary
Cleaning your dog’s private areas of hair is just plain good for their hygiene and wellbeing. A sanitary trim in these areas will help keep your dog’s from sticking to the fur and will keep urine from drying on long hair so your pup can stay clean and fresh for longer.
#3. It Removes the Unwanted
A professional groomer will use high-quality shampoos and other products to get rid of old hair, dirt and excess oil on your dog’s skin. At Bubbles Pet Spa we use only the best products for your furry friends to ensure their comfort is of the highest caliber. Our products help prevent skin problems and will help locate lumps and bumps that may not be noticeable without the trim.
#4. It’s Good for the Eyes
Crust in the corner of your dog’s eyes is extremely uncomfortable and tears will stain the eyes and cause a horrible odor. Your dog may also grow sores that can only be visible after the thick crust has been removed during grooming.
#5. It’s Cooling
Long hair on your dog’s paws will make it harder for your pup to cool off since they lower their internal temperature by panting and by circulating air around and through the pads on their feet.
#6. It’s Good for the Nails
Overgrown nails will make your dog walk on the sides of their paws, which is painful and uncomfortable and can cause arthritis down the road. If your dog’s nails are not trimmed on a regular basis, the quicks will grow really long and could grow into the pads, which is dangerous and painful for your dog.
#7. It Prevents Costly Procedures
Is your dog scooting around your carpet? It is most likely due to their anal glands filling up. Don’t wait until they burst and result in an expensive surgery and immense pain – get your pup groomed to keep this from happening.
#8. It Keeps the Ears Healthy
There is hair deep inside your dog’s ear canal that should be removed to avoid ear infections, which are painful, expensive and extremely uncomfortable. Certain severe ear infections can cause your dog’s skin to release a horrible odor.
Understanding the Importance of Pet Grooming
Grooming enhances your dog’s overall health by ensuring that they are in top shape both physically and mentally. Grooming boosts your dog’s circulation, muscle mass and will reduce the likelihood of infections. These reasons should give you the push you need to make grooming a regular occurrence for your dog. Both you and your dog will benefit from grooming and it is something that your dog will love and appreciate. Your furry friend will look and feel clean and grooming will help identify any medical issues before they become too big to tackle. When it comes to your pet’s safety and health, you can never be too cautious.
