5 Surprising Health Benefits of Dog Grooming, Highland Village, Texas

Dog grooming may be a great way of working on your pet’s appearance, but it also plays a key role in maintaining their health. Regular visits allow professional groomers to check on the state of your dog’s coat, skin, ears, and feet. They keep your dog clean while ensuring they’re in good shape. Here is a closer look at some of these benefits.

How Grooming Is Good for Your Dog’s Health

1. Protects Their Skin

If you’ve ever tried to comb through tangled hair, you’re probably familiar with the discomfort that rough tugs of a brush can cause. Mats and tangles form in fur that isn’t regularly groomed, particularly in breeds with long, thick, or curly coats. This, in turn, leads to redness and skin irritation, which can easily be avoided with dog grooming.

2. Reveals Abnormalities

The best dog groomers are thorough in their work. They’ll check your pet’s skin for unusual bumps, scratches, injuries, parasites, inflammation, and any other observable abnormalities. You can then report their most concerning findings to your veterinarian at your next appointment.

3. Removes Debris

4. Keeps Feet Healthy

Long, untamed nails can do a lot of damage to your dog’s feet. Uneven and excessive growth shifts their posture, resulting in damaged foot structure, pressure on joints, and a painful gait. Additionally, your dog will be more likely to scratch and hurt themselves. Although they may not like the process, keeping their nails clipped is a necessary precaution.

5. Spreads Natural Oils

Just like humans, your dog secretes natural oils that benefit their skin and hair. Brushing and combing help spread these oils throughout their fur, giving their coat the healthy, beautiful sheen associated with a good dog grooming session. With a freshly groomed coat, your pet will look and feel fantastic.
