Gossip from the Groomimg Room-How important is regular grooming to your pet's comfort and health?
Have you ever had your hair in a ponytail that was just a little too tight? Maybe your hair was just bunched up or stuck together?
A mat can feel the same way to your dog — a constant pull on the skin. Try to imagine those all over your body, and you have an idea of how uncomfortable an un groomed coat can be? A coat free of mats, burrs and tangles is as comfortable to your dog as fresh, clean clothes are to you.
Keeping your pet well groomed not only makes for a clean-smelling companion, regular grooming removes dead hair and dispenses the natural oil which keeps your pet’s coat and skin healthy, and improves your dog’s blood circulation.
Dogs need a groom, on average, every six to eight weeks. Washing them more frequently can remove oils from the skin, especially for short-haired breeds.
Dogs need the oil on their skin forgood health. Without it, they can develop itching, rashes and patches on the skin.
Regular grooming allows to detect any health problems which you might not notice, before they become serious, or even life-threatening.
For allergy sufferers, keeping your pooch clean may make having a dog possible.
