Grooming For Good Dog Health

Every dog needs to be kept clean and well groomed, regardless of breed, for their good health and comfort.  Whether you tackle the job yourself or hire a professional, there are certain aspects that should not be overlooked. 

*Haircut- Longer haired dogs often require clippings to maintain a healthy coat, free of matts and dead hair.
*Brushings should be done weekly and can easily be done at home.  Brushings improve circuation and keeps your dog's coat healthy and flake free.
*Brushing teeth is important to remove harmful bacteria from the mouth that can potentially spread to other parts of the body.
*Bathing from time to time.  My suggestion is about every 4 weeks in warmer months and perhaps every 8 weeks in colder months.
*Nail trimmings are important to prevent pain and injury from occurring on the paws from lengthy nails. 
*Ear cleanings about once a month will help prevent harmful infections which can lead to hearing loss.
