The Importance of Professional Pet Grooming

Keep Your Pet Clean!

Most people get haircuts to feel better about themselves, to appear better, or to just start again. But for dogs and cats, professional pet grooming is crucial; neglecting to properly comb pets can have major health repercussions. Here’s why it is vital:

Clean Coat

Just like people, dogs can get oily hair and clogged pores. By brushing them, you can control the amount of grease in their coat and help their coat breathe. A build-up of excess oil can irritate the skin, obstruct pores, and lead to other skin issues. Regular bathing also aids in preventing oil and grime build-up. Additionally, some breeds are more likely to develop seborrhea, a skin disorder. Seborrhea results in flaky dandruff on the coat as well as greasy, stinking, irritating oil in the ears, armpits, stomach, elbows, and ankles.

Preventing a Tangly Mess

Painful mats and knots can form in the coats of both dogs and cats, particularly those with long fur. Without routine grooming, mats may evolve from a minor skin irritant to a serious lesion or may stop the flow of blood. Knowing the type of coat a dog has will assist you to decide how frequently you should brush your dog. Dogs with short hair only need to be brushed once a week, however, a dog with a long double coat could need to be brushed three to four times weekly.

Emotional Health

The emotional health of your pet benefits from grooming as well. It not only helps you and your pet bond, but it also improves their behavior. Lack of positive human interaction can cause fearfulness, aggression, and other behavioral issues in dogs and cats. Taking your pet to a professional groomer can also give your dog social interaction and help them get used to being handled by strangers, both of which can be advantageous in the long run.
