As summer comes rolling in, the grooming salon at Fluffy Tails is bustling with animals because of their long-awaited spa appointment. I’ve seen it all! Clean dogs, dirty dogs, matted and well-brushed dogs. If you’re wondering why your groomer asks someone to come in regularly, below are a few reasons why.
1. Regular grooming really helps to maintain a wholesome coat and epidermis. Scrubbing, blow drying, and brushing removes dead skin and wild hair as well as allowing air to circulate through the jacket. Brushing also really helps to distribute the pet’s oils throughout the jacket.
2. Groomers can inspect the skin and cover during grooming. Regular grooming may even give groomers an opportunity to find any abnormalities, including fleas and ticks. Quite often, groomers will be the first to find these critters and can find a very good possible way to remove them from your pet. Contact here
3. Matted head of hair can be dealt with by brushing or shaving under it, depending on the severity. Matted or pelted coats are nothing unusual in the beginning of warmer weather, but as a groomer, I help you never to wait before end of winter to cope with it. Mats tend to be painful and irritating since it can pinch and yank the skin. Envision the roots of your hairs being pinched and pulled all day long. Ouch!
4. Ears and nails are often overlooked over a pet, particularly if they haven’t been groomed in three or even more months. Hair does indeed increase in the ears and between your toes, so if indeed they expand too much time you might not notice the condition they are simply in. Regular nail trimming is important because when nails increase too long, it can be uncomfortable for your dog to walk, aside from stand. If you’ve ever worn a shoe that’s a size smaller, you might have a concept of how uncomfortable it could be. It’s also standard procedure to pluck (yes, pluck) the locks from your pet’s ear if there are any. Removing ear head of hair opens up the ear to let air flow through. When ear locks is left growing, it can attract dampness which can cause ear infections or yeast build up.
5. Here’s a very important factor I’m sure your individual hair stylist doesn’t offer at the salon: sanitary trims and poop cleaning! A sanitary lean is when groomers shave or lean round the genital and anus of your pet. That is to keep the area clean, and free of any tangles or unwanted mane. Occasionally I’ll visit a pet client that will come in a few times each year with a chunk of poop trapped on the bum. This is not okay! Any feces left over a pet should be removed immediately as it could cause irritation, inflammation, and matting about the bum. You wouldn’t leave poop on your baby’s bum, so why can you leave any on your dogs?
6. Grooming will always add a good clean about the eyes. If your dog has a whole lot of eye gunk in the inner eye corners, it’s better to remove them as soon as possible.
Discharge departed accumulating and developed round the eyes can cause irritation. Long term build-up can be hard to remove even by a groomer, and can result in discomfort and pain. If your dog has excessive and/or discolored eye discharge, it’s better to see a medical expert.
7. Regular and regular grooming is beneficial for most pets who have problems with anxiety. Sometime clients feel reluctant to bring in their hair babies for grooming because they simply don’t enjoy being groomed or are frightened. A fellow groomer once explained: a puppy that’s groomed every 3-6 months start to see the groomer’s as punishment, while a dog that’s groomed every 4-6 weeks view it as a part of life.
A clean dog is a happy dog! I really believe regular grooming should be treated such as a spa day. Every time they come in, they will leave looking and sense beautiful. Pre-booking appointments at the end of the prior groom will ensure a spot for your dog in the coming busy months.
