How Professional Dog Grooming Improves Your Dog’s Health

Dog Getting a Bath from a Groomer

While we all love to have our dogs professionally cleaned and groomed to have them looking their best, grooming can play an even more important role by ensuring the health of your furry friend.

Whether it be a bathing, brushing or any other grooming services, regular grooming will have a professional groomer get up close and personal with your pup where they can see if anything is out of the ordinary.

No matter if it be fixing something that may be making your dog uncomfortable or finding a potentially harmful issue, regular grooming will help ensure that your dog lives a long and happy life.

Detects issues at the source

When you bring your dog to a groomer to be brushed and bathed on a regular basis, the groomer should be able to see if anything is out of the ordinary.

Since they will become very familiar with your pup, they should be able to detect even the slightest of changes with your dog that may end up being something life threatening.

While this can be thought of as a kind of regular checkup, your dog should go to a veterinarian as soon as possible if any potential serious issue is discovered during grooming.

Prevent mats

Having your dog brushed regularly by a professional groomer can help prevent mats from forming. These mats can cause pain and stress for your dog as they pull at the skin.

These mats can progressively get worse if not brushed out right away, so it’s important to discover them quickly.

Detects hyperthyroidism, dermatitis & more

When your dog is groomed on a regular basis, a groomer will be able to detect a wide variety of issues.

A dull coat or inflamed ears may indicate hyperthyroidism which can lead to weight gain and decreased energy. Red, blotchy skin can be a symptom of contact dermatitis and any black specs that are found may be a sign that ticks and fleas are present.

These hazards can often be discovered when bathing your dog, as wet fur allows you to get a good look at the skin.

When you’d like to have your dog professionally groomed to avoid these issues down the line, we ask that you think of our all-inclusive pet resort and spa at Tailwaggers Country Inn.

We will be happy to treat your four-legged friend to a shinier coat, improved overall health and a Paws-itively gorgeous appearance at our grooming facility.
