The importance of grooming
Traditionally, we haven’t thought of our pet’s needs for regular bathing and brushing, but grooming and hygiene are just as important for your dog as they are for you. The benefits extend far beyond just making your dog look prettier, it keeps them healthy and happy. The need for grooming is just as important for a farm dog as it is for a little indoor dog. Unkempt long hair can restrict your pet’s vision, cause discomfort, and result in matting. Dirty, matted hair and undercoat can be painful and the cause of many skin conditions if not removed. It can also impede a dog’s ability to cool itself.
A professional groomer has the knowledge, tools and equipment to properly care for your pet’s coat, and alert you to potential health issues. Groomers also trim your dog’s nails. Long nails can make it difficult for your dog to walk correctly. Overgrown nails can grow into the paw pads causing pain and infection.
