Pet Grooming Tips!

Regular grooming should be an essential part of your pet’s health care routine and grooming is a good opportunity to give your pet a good check over for fleas, signs of irritation or any lumps that may require veterinary care. All dogs and cats require some brushing but the amount of time spent each week varies hugely between breeds and type of coat. Some long -haired breeds require brushing nearly every day, while those with shorter coats may only need a brush once a week.

A good time to brush your pet is when they are relaxed. For dogs, this is usually after a walk and for cats when they are chilled out and ready for a nap.  Get them used to being handled all over from a young age and keep grooming sessions very short when you start. A grooming mitt, like the Oakwood Pet Grooming Glove is the perfect tool to help get puppies and kittens used to being brushed.  The glove is gentle and removes loose hair as it massages the coat.  This glove is also great for adult pets that are wary of regular brushing.

Your grooming routine should also include and cleaning ears and trimming nails as necessary.
