How grooming impacts your pup’s health

Grooming is about more than just having a pretty and pampered pet -- although they do deserve it from time to time! While grooming you’re also tackling potential health conditions and keeping your dog more comfortable. Spot health problems before they become serious or even life-threatening.

Brushing can be a revelation. Along with smoothing out your pup’s hairs, brushing helps to remove dead hair, dirt, and dandruff.

Routine brushing also helps to bring out the natural oils in the dog’s fur. As you brush, the natural oils are spread all over your puppy’s fur giving the coat a healthier sheen.

Grooming also allows you to check your dog for any abnormalities. This includes problems such as:

  • Ticks
  • Fleas and dry patches
  • Issues with nails, teeth, ears, and eyes such as infection or inflammation.

When found at an early stage, these problems can be treated before they have a chance to become more serious.

All in all, grooming keeps your dog happy and healthy. So make sure to keep your dog properly and consistently groomed.
