Good dog grooming includes more than a bath a couple times a year. Responsible pet owners need to pay attention to the health of nails, skin, and fur. A bath and trim is a good time to assess your dog’s health and help him or her feel good at the same time.
Grooming promotes healthy skin and hair
For best results, use clippers on clean dry fur. Use this opportunity to check for patches of dry skin, redness, or unusual textures. Trimmed fur helps prevent tangles and matts so your pet will look and feel better, too. The Andis Universal Pet Clipper is a popular at-home grooming product that features changeable combs; size 6 has a cut depth of 1/8” (3 mm).
