Health benefits of Regular Dog Grooming

An un-groomed coat is a sheer invitation to mats. Matted hair is a tangled mass that         pulls the skin and is an extremely uncomfortable condition for the dog. However regular    brushing/combing will never let such a situation arise where mats are formed all over the pooch’s body.

This is often the cause of painful arthritis and bone malformations if left unattended. Trimming will also avert a very painful condition where the nails grow into the foot pads of the canine. Pruning also offers a close view of the pet’s feet and helps to highlight some other concerns like cracked/dry paw-pads, tangled fur around the area and swelling.

Remember that a dog’s coat is like his suit/clothes; hence it is very vital for his hair to be free of bad odor, ticks, fleas, tangles, dead hair and dirt. Dogs with a double coat or silky hair such as Cocker-Spaniels need a special brushing technique to keep tangles away that involves dividing the coat into different small sections. Brush outwards from the skin and cover each section from head to tail. Depending upon the breed type of your pet you may want to get its hair cut short every once in a while.  A professional groomer will clip your dog’s coat in a safe manner.
