3 Ways Grooming Can Improve Your Dog's Health, Manhattan, New York

People often think that dog grooming involves a warm bath and haircut. While these are crucial parts of this service, there is a lot more to an appointment than just aesthetics. Here is what your pup can gain from a dog grooming that doesn’t include a fabulous haircut.

A Guide to Dog Grooming Benefits

1. Detangling

If your furry pal has long hair, you know it’s a lot of work to keep them looking good. Dog grooming can help minimize tangles and make it easier to do a quick daily brush at home. Groomers use special shampoo to improve dogs’ coats and also make it easier to ensure they’re smooth and silky. Plus, having a tangle-free coat can reduce potential skin allergies and prevent pests from taking up residence in their fur.

2. Minimizing the Risk of Pest Issues

dog groomingWhen bathing a dog, you may find that they have fleas or a tick is biting their skin. It’s much easier to spot these issues when they’re wet, and their fur loses much of its volume. Using a flea and tick shampoo can help get rid of these uninvited guests; once you know of their presence, you can speak with a veterinarian about how to prevent future infestations.

3. Mitigating Ear Troubles

Dog grooming often includes ear cleaning. Groomers will remove built-up dirt, ear wax, and dust that accumulates, which may make it easier for your pup to hear. They’ll also trim ear hair if necessary to prevent ear infections. If they spot issues like ear mites, they’ll pass that information along; also, you can head to the vet to get it treated.
