A Well Groomed Pet Rocks The Kazbar!

Sep 1, 2008
Grooming is a vital part of having a dog or a cat. It's more than just cosmetic reasons that you should take care of your pet in this way - neglect can also cause health issues.

The coat is the first area we will look at. Anyone who owns a long haired dog will know what havoc the elements can cause. Matted fur, tangles and the creation of a perfect home for fleas, ticks and so on are the risks you take if you don't groom your dog.

Outdoor dogs, especially long haired ones will have their owner's work cut out for them in the less clement seasons. A romp in the rain, mud and wind will quickly give your dog a 'bad hair day' so prepare yourself for regular attention to his coat..

Great products for dog grooming have become much more readily available over the years, which lessen the workload for you the owner and turn your dog out to perfection.

Stray hair from your pet can provoke allergies, but you can combat this at the source by using a FURminator. This patented innovation gently removes, without cutting, the sub-coat, and your dog will think he is just having a massage.

It has been designed with an ergonomic handle making it easy to grip and utilize, and does not affect the topcoat. With regular use this excellent tool can reduce shedding by up to 90%, which may help with allergies that many people suffer from.

Kong produces the Zoom Groom Brush for Dogs in their own colours, Boysenberry and Raspberry. Your dog will relish the rub he is getting, while you are using the brush's innovative design to remove hair.

The brush is really gentle on the skin, so Pooch will love it, and may even be inspired to roll onto his back. A circular motion will get the best results.

Long nails are a problem as they can split causing bleeding and possible infection, but nail clipping at home has been revolutionized by the Master Grooming Tools Guillotine Nail Clippers. A non-slip grip and sharp blades are features of this design, modelled to make life easier for the user. Your dog may take exception at first to nail clipping but with practice, you will both be pros in no time.

As a finishing touch, there are so many products to make your dog smell heavenly. 8in1 have an especially good range of shampoos, sprays and conditioners with scents such as Baby Powder and fruity combinations to give the finishing touch to your dog's beauty regime. Alcohol-free, and softened with Aloe Vera, your dog's coat will gleam with health.

Westie owners and other pale dog owners may be interested in Eye Wipes to clean away those rusty stains from round the eyes. Clean eyes are a must especially for showdogs where such an obvious slip in grooming could mean the loss of a prize. For your own self respect, ensure your dog looks his best!
