We all know we should do it, but what does combing really do for your furry friend besides making them look pretty?
In general terms, a clean pet is a happy pet. Simply no hair in the eyes, clean fur and epidermis, clipped nails and clean teeth all lead to a pet that is comfortable and better behaved.
If we don’t usually our pet’s grooming needs on a regular foundation, we encourage many different issues which can lead to expensive vet bills and difficult or even intense behaviour from your dog.
Long hair is the culprit of a variety of discomfort and epidermis issues. Hair hanging over your pet’s eyes can restrict vision altering the pet’s abilities and behaviour. When long hair is not brushed and washed regularly, pets often experience matting and can fill your dog with extra weight.
Matting of the tresses can be painful and cause many skin conditions. Severe matting restricts the flow of blood, pulling tightly on a pet’s skin and making a simple pat agonizing. In some cases, matting can be so severe that it restricts body movement leading to problems.
Overgrown nails can be very painful, with long nails growing into the paw pads and causing infection. Long nails can cause your pet’s toes to bend and create a walking disfigurement.
Twice coating from irregular brushing leads to extra coating, leading to your pet to experience heat stress.
Grass seed products will not be easily detected if you are not hands-on with your grooming, undetected grass seeds can cause abscesses and severe infection. It is not unheard of for an animal to lose an eye from an hidden grass seed.
Fleas, clicks and mites are some of the most typical parasites that can be fatal to your pet and they thrive on dirty and untreated bodies.
Dental disease can lead to halitosis, teeth loss, reduced appetite and if untreated can cause organ damage to your pet’s heart, lean meats and kidneys. Learn more about dental health.
Just about all of these issues can be detrimental to your pet’s mental wellbeing, due to the discomfort and pain they can cause. By looking after your pet’s grooming needs on a regular schedule you can optimise your pet’s physical and emotional health.
