The Importance of Dog Grooming & Canine Skin Care

What’s the first thing you’ll notice if you see an unhealthy, abandoned dog in the streets? Chances are, you’ll notice the dirty scruffy coat first. This indicates that a healthy coat is one of the most obvious signs of proper care and good health in your dog. 

Here at Dallas Mobile Pet Spaw, we are passionate about helping dog owners keep their beloved pets healthy through our professional grooming services. We understand that grooming provides several health benefits for dogs, some of which may not even be immediately obvious. Here’s why dog grooming and canine skin care are important.

Coat and Skin Ventilation

Grooming your dog helps to ventilate their coat and skin. It gets rid of old and damaged hair and allows healthy and strong hair to grow in its place. Good skin ventilation can also help reduce the level of grease in your dog’s coat. Getting rid of these potential pore-blocking greases can reduce the risk of irritation and other skin issues. For short-haired or even hairless dogs, it’s important to take extra precaution with their coats to ensure their skin isn’t irritated.

Soothing and Relaxing

Something as simple as brushing your dog’s coat can be quite soothing and relaxing. It acts as a sort of massage which promotes healthy blood circulation. Spending time to groom your pet is also a great bonding time for you and your dog. Both of you will find this experience quite soothing.

Prevents Matting and Sores

Matting occurs when loose hair on your dog’s coat becomes tangled. This can become worse over time if your dog is not properly groomed regularly. The matted hair will pull at their skin and may cause painful sores to appear. This can also open the door to infection to the skin underneath the fur. Regular grooming by our experts at Dallas Mobile Pet Spaw helps to prevent this. Not to mention pet grooming becomes more convenient than ever with our mobile services that come to you.

Grooming Is an Opportunity for A Health Checkup

Sometimes, we wish dogs could talk. Since they can’t, we have to pay attention to their moods and behaviors to understand how they feel. Grooming is an opportunity for a basic health check. During grooming, expert groomers lookout for sores, injuries, lumps, scratches, and other likely problems with your dog’s skin. You can also opt for dental care, which is crucial for a dog’s overall wellness. Sometimes, issues remain hidden until it is too late, but professional grooming presents an opportunity for a check-up and to recommend further care when necessary.
