GROOMING YOUR PET AT HOME

Although it’s been great staying at home and receiving an extra dose of love from your pet or dog You may begin to notice that their grooming may not be adequate.

Maybe their coat is beginning to appear a bit knotted or the nails are beginning to scratch deeply into the wood furniture.

What should you do if the groomer you are using is closed or from you?

If you’re a lover of the DIY lifestyle or just an animal lover who would like to find how to better care for your pet from home, we’ve compiled some tips to assist you!

Trimming or Brushing Your Pets’ Fur

With spring just beginning and your cat or dog’s’ fur getting longer and longer each day, you might be thinking about ways to keep the coats they love so much.

Brushing

The routine brushing of your dog is an excellent method to promote healthful coats by eliminating excessive shed, spreading natural oils that improve overall shine, controlling hair tangles, stopping matting and aiding in removing the dead and dry coat.

When should you clean your dog?

  • Daily, based on coat length and breed
  • Prior to taking a bath
  • After taking a bath
  • When there is a time of seasonal shed

The brush you choose to use should be according to the purpose and length of the coat your dog has.

If you’re only brushing to keep up with your routine, consider using a brush (special grooming fine-tooth or an ordinary wide-tooth comb which has no cutting edges) as well as a pin-head brush.

However, if you’re hoping to get rid of hair mats, or any excess fur using a shedding blade or an all-purpose slicker brush is ideal.

We had the chance to discuss grooming and grooming Jess Okon over at Blue-9 Pet Products, an organisation that makes products for dog grooming for canines along with their owner.

“For flat-coated dogs, brush them at least once a week. Double coat dogs up to three times per week to eliminate dead undercoats, and also reduce shedding,” she said.

“And the curly-coated and long-coated dogs every day, paying particular attention to areas susceptible to matting, such as around the ears, armpits and the hips.”

In the case of cats, they’re provided with a grooming method that involves the use of their tongues.

However, regular brushing at least 2 or 3 times per week is advised for many reasons, such as:

  • Helping to improve blood circulation
  • Removing dead skin
  • Removal of hair that is not needed
  • Cleaning grease and dirt
  • Promoting healthy skin
  • Helps prevent tangles
  • Hairballs are kept to a minimum.

The act of brushing your cat can be useful if your cat is older and is unable to fully take care of themselves.
