Important Tips for Dog Grooming Enthusiasts
No matter the style, your dog’s coat can say a lot about their health. A happy, healthy dog should have a beautiful, glossy coat and good nutrition. Regular pet grooming and parasite prevention can go a long way when it comes to keeping your pup healthy. Denise Petryk, DVM, an on-staff veterinarian at Trupanion, provides some great tips to monitor and care for your pet’s coat.
“Groom your pet regularly. It’s a great way to bond with your pet and keep an eye on the state of their coat. A bath can reduce dander and itching and a regular brushing can help reduce excess hair and bond with your pup.
Talk to your veterinarian about a balanced diet for your pet and stay on top of parasite prevention to keep pesky fleas and ticks at bay. Watch for balding or excessive shedding. Bald spots, hair loss, or areas of thin or missing hair can mean a number of things, and can be so difficult to diagnose. Some of the main causes include hormonal imbalance, stress, parasites or allergies to food and flea bites.
If you discover that your pet has a lackluster coat, thinning hair, bald patches or is suffering from any form of skin irritation, it’s important to talk to your veterinarian and try to identify the underlying cause.”
