Don't let winter weather get between your pet and its health this season
Many people believe pet grooming should be confined to the spring and summer seasons, and let their pets go without visiting the groomer during the fall and winter months.
The most common reason for this is because owners don't want their pets to get cold, however, there are several reasons one should continue their regular grooms through the colder months:
• An overgrown coat collects dirt and odors.
• An overgrown coat mats, itches, and breaks off. Skin becomes irritated and maybe mat sores develop. Ouch!
• An overgrown matted coat picks up snow and ice, when it melts the dog gets soaked and stays wet. A wet dog is a colder dog.
• A wet matted coat mats tighter. By
time you get the dog groomed in the spring, there’s no hope for anything but a shave. Imagine your own hair uncombed for 4-6 months and then trying to save it. Ouch, OUCH!!
• If you try to bathe an overgrown matted dog during the winter, odds are that you’ll leave soap behind, causing itching and irritation. Also you won’t get the smell out, trust me.
• Matted coats trap tears, saliva, food, urine and feces. I don’t know about you, but my stomach turns at the thought of hugging a filthy, smelly dog, even if he is my best friend.
• You really don’t save much money skipping a few grooming sessions; it will cost you much more in the spring for the amount of work needed.
• What about short haired dogs like beagles, pointers, Dobermans, Rottweiler’s, and labs??
• Keeping a short haired dog bathed and brushed helps to keep their skin and hair healthier. Taking them to the grooming shop insures that their nails are clipped comfortable and their ears are cleaned.
