Pet Grooming Tips
Follow these steps to help keep your pet clean and content:
- Brushing your pet every day will keep their hair in good, clean
condition while spreading natural oils throughout their coat. It also
makes them look better and provides valuable bonding time for you and
your pet! Another perk of brushing your pet daily is the reduction of
pet hair in the home.
- Trimming your pet’s nails frequently is important. There are a variety
of animal nail-clippers available. If you are uncomfortable with
trimming your pet's nails yourself, your vet or groomer should be able
to do it at a fairly low cost.
- Ears need to be checked on a regular basis for signs of infection that
can lead to hearing loss. The skin inside the ears should be pale pink.
If there is a foul odour, unusual or excessive discharge, redness or
brown/black skin, see your veterinarian.
- Pets get cavities, too, so don’t forget to clean your pet's teeth with pet toothpaste or give them special dental chews.
- Bath your pet no more than once a month, but enough that he or she will
be free of dirt, fur-mats and foul odours. Remember to use shampoo that
is specially formulated for your pet.
