Just like human beings, animals also need love and care to feel good to maintain their health. It is common to see owners with pedigree dogs having beautifully groomed pets, however, grooming is also good for other breeds too especially long-haired ones. A well-groomed pet will also feel better with a clean coat and ears, with filed nails and you will also notice a positive difference in the dog’s behaviour too.
Clean and Healthy Pets
Having a clean and healthy pet is very important for the owner as well. Animals generally carry dust and germs and the more their physical well-being is neglected, there is a higher chance of an increase in allergies. But a clean healthy pet is a happy one. It is common to see long-haired dogs with matted, dirty fur when neglected and this is rather uncomfortable for them too. Keeping their nails short and trimmed will also prevent infections as well.
Pets Look Good and Feel Good
Paying a visit to a professional dog groomer will also result in your pet looking and feeling good – most dog breeds especially are sensitive and much more perceptive than they seem. A healthy mental state is very beneficial. A healthy, shiny coat is an added benefit for your pet, and there will be little to no animal odor as well. Groomers will be aware of what kinds of breeds might need regular cuts to maintain their looks, and they will do a professional job too. Some salons may include massages for the dogs and this is also great for their well-being.
Early Detection of Skin issues
Most pet grooming in Singapore have staff who are used to dealing with animals and are adept at recognizing abnormal skin issues such as rashes, lumps, discolorations, infections, lesions etc. or even gum and dental issues. A dog’s skin conditions can also reflect dietary issues as well. Detecting these kinds of issues early on can even prevent a major health issue in the future or prevent one before it progresses. The groomers will also check for parasites on the coat or mites that might be in your pet’s ears.
Adapting Your Pets to Sessions
A pet who is not used to visiting grooming salons can find it troublesome and annoying at first. But as time goes by, they will get used to the surrounding and the groomer too. The groomers will advice you on how often your dog will need to be groomed, as each breed is different. Some grooming salons will even let the owner watch and stay with their pet during grooming sessions to make them feel more comfortable.
