Hey you, pet parent! How's the fur situation at your place? Smooth and shiny like a shampoo commercial, or a little more on the "scratch-a-thon" side?
Regular grooming is essential for your pet's health and appearance. This includes daily or alternate day brushing regardless of hair length, using pet-specific hypoallergenic shampoos, getting professional haircuts based on breed-specific needs, investing in high-quality grooming tools, and seeking professional help for issues like matted fur or persistent odors.
“‘Summer’s here, I guess it’s time to shave down the dog…’ No!” But no, says Dr. Jeff Werber of Los Angeles County. For dogs, their coat is thermoregulatory, which means that NOT shaving them will keep them cooler.
