There are many different aspects to pet maintenance- grooming, bathing, and nail trims to name a few. Keeping up with your pet’s ever changing coat and nails can prevent a painful situation for your pet.
Your pet’s coat should be regularly groomed and bathed to ensure clean, healthy fur and to help prevent tangles. If your pet goes a prolonged amount of time without being groomed, they could develop irritating mats in their fur, especially if they have a thick undercoat. In advanced cases, the entire coat may need to be shaved before new, healthy fur can grow naturally. Frequent grooming and brushing can stop the beginning stages from occurring and keep your pet’s coat pain-free.
An essential part of pet maintenance is the upkeep of their nails. Though natural wear and use will help, they are often not enough to keep the nails at a healthy length, just above the quick of the nail. In some cases, the nails will continue to grow, curving into your pet’s paw pads which can be extremely painful and lead to infections. Not to mention the damage they can do to yourself and your furniture. Getting your pet’s nails trimmed regularly can save a lot of heartache down the road.
