Why is grooming important? Going to a pet store for grooming is more important than cutting the dog’s hair. Many additional services can make the dog’s life more comfortable. In addition to bathing and cutting the dog’s hair, the beautician also helps them clean their ears, cut their nails, and check for problems throughout the body. If you can’t help your dog with these things, it is still recommended that you regularly take your dog to the pet shop for grooming. Every dog needs at least some grooming to maintain good looks and health.
Grooming is very important to your dog’s overall health and well-being. Shearing your dog during grooming can reduce hair loss and make your life easier because you don’t have to clean the hair around the house. Whether you take the dog to the grooming salon or take care of these needs yourself, the grooming process helps to check every part of the dog, before the problem gets worse, find the disease under the dog’s thick hair Some of the problems that can be prevented or discovered through regular grooming are:
General professional groomers will look at the dog’s eyes when they groom the dog. Do its eyes look clear and bright? What if they are red, liquid, white, turbid, or have a lot of eye feces? This means it’s time to see a veterinarian. Once the dog’s hair is too long, it may pounce on its face when exercising, irritating the dog’s eyes and causing it to shed tears, so that the dog is prone to two dirty tears. So cut the hair around the eyes of the dog regularly
The ears should be checked every week for signs of infection. When you turn the dog’s ears back, you should not smell any odors. Red earwax or foul odor may be a sign of infection and you should see a veterinarian. Help dogs pluck their ears and clean their ears during grooming. Pour ear powder into the dog’s ears, and then gently rub the ear holes so that the ear hair powder is in full contact with the ear hair and ear canal. Whether you use a tool or use your fingers to pull out, you are required to pull as quickly as possible, cut the numb with a sharp knife After plucking the ear hairs, put ear drops into the dog’s ears, gently massage the ear canal with your thumb and index finger for dozens of seconds, and then the dog will shake the head after releasing it. This is the dog’s instinct to protect the fragile part of the ear tube and make the earwax deep in the ear float to the surface. Once the dirt is thrown out, wipe it gently with dry cotton If the dog is prone to ear infections, cotton placed in the ears before bathing or swimming helps prevent water infection from entering the ear canal.
Some dogs who often run or walk on rough roads may not need to trim their nails. But most dogs need you or a groomer to help them trim their nails. Long nails will naturally bend the dog’s feet and it is inconvenient to land on the ground, and it will break easily over time, causing local injuries and infections.
Dental and oral problems
Brushing your teeth every day is the key to keeping your dog’s teeth healthy. According to pet doctors, 85% of dogs over 4 years old suffer from oral diseases, such as periodontal disease. Other common oral problems include tooth loss, tooth decay, abscesses, and even infections that can lead to death. If your dog does not let you brush your teeth, you can try tooth sprays, mouthwashes, molar sticks, molar bones, etc. to help your dog maintain oral health.
Trim messy hair
Unkempt hair not only looks bad but if you do not groom your dog regularly, it will seriously harm your dog. The matted hair can hide fleas, ticks, and lice, as well as invisible skin diseases.
After the dog’s hair gets wet, it is easier to find some bumps. Even if the dog hasn’t become very dirty, bathing regularly can help spot lumps. These lumps can be a sign of serious disease, even cancer. A gentle shower gel for dogs to prevent them from becoming very dry after washing.
It’s not that dogs must go to pet shops for grooming, but to remind some owners that not only do they have to bathe and cut their hair, but also cut nails, pluck their ears, and clean their ears. If the owner has time to help the dog grooming at home after self-study, this is better. Avoid that some tools in the pet shop are not clean enough to cause the dog to get skin diseases
