Regular pet grooming entails much more than just making dogs and cats look pretty. Grooming actually helps keep pets and their owners healthy! Here in the Triangle, Paws in the City encourages all of our pet families to practice good nutrition and good grooming, for healthier, happier pets.
Grooming can benefit pets and their owners in four fundamental ways:
- Happy pets: Just like their humans, pets feel better after bathing and brushing. They feel clean, refreshed and happy and improved attitude shows immediately afterwards.
- Healthy fur: Brushing not only detangles matted hair, but also distributes the natural oils in the fur. Regular brushing removes dirt and dandruff, leaving the fur healthier as well as cleaner.
- Improved health: When grooming, check for skin problems, such as dry skin, bumps, fleas, or ticks. Catching these problem signs early can help prevent them from becoming more serious. Also check the pet’s ears, eyes, and nails, to be sure there are no signs of abnormalities or inflammation.
- Bonding for both pet and human: Spending some quiet time with the family pet; brushing hair and grooming nails and skin, gives both pets and humans the opportunity to de-stress and bond. Brushing and grooming actually have a calming effect that definitely makes everyone involved feel healthier and happier.
Of course, good health for a pet’s coat, skin, ears, eyes, and nails starts on the inside. Proper nutrition makes all the difference!
