Grooming: It isn’t Only for Good Looks

It’s easy to overlook our pets daily/weekly grooming needs. We’re busy, and it isn’t very likely that our pest will let us know when they need to be brushed or bathed. And most times your pet’s coat probably looks shiny and healthy; in fact, unless he or she is muddy, your pet’s coat probably looks the same whether clean or dirty.

But your pet needs to be groomed regularly, either at home by you or by your friendly professional groomer at Groomingdale’s. It’s important to mention that regular grooming needs will vary between the breeds, meaning that the type of brush or comb used will differ depending on your pet’s coat. And if you have any questions about the type of brush or comb to use at home on your pet’s coat, then speak with your professional groomer at Groomingdale’s.

Here are a few ways to keep your pet looking and feeling his or her best…

When it comes to regular care, tooth brushing is high on the list. If your pet doesn’t appreciate getting his or her teeth brushed, or if he or she doesn’t have the obedience required to sit still, and to let you rub a soft-bristled tooth brush over the teeth and gum line, then it’s time to practice both obedience and conditioning: the tooth brush is not a toy or something scary, but is a tool you need to use regularly to keep their mouth clean.

Ears are another area often overlooked, but in all pets, some breeds of dog in particular, the ears are a place for an obstruction (grass seeds), hiding places for ticks and fleas, and have the potential to become infected. Regular ear cleaning, using either a commercially prepared ear cleaner or an at-home remedy, will keep your pet’s ears clean and keep you aware of any potential problems that could easily escalate if left unchecked.

Luckily, you also have the professional services at Groomingdale’s to keep your dog clean and healthy and happy. If you have any questions about the services offered at Groomingdale’s, then call today.
