Want Your Pet To Have That Gorgeous Shiny Coat?

Aug 17, 2007
The coat of fur on your precious pet speaks tremendously about their health condition. In addition to giving your pet a loving family, regular grooming and wholesome natural diet with adequate supplementation will help ensure their fur coat shine vibrantly. People are bound to envy their gorgeous coat and you can be assured that it comes along with optimum health and vitality as well.

Here are some basics that can help you achieve that silky lustrous coat on your pet that other dog owners envy. For this to work, ensure your pet gets proper healthy nutrition daily, daily exercise and of course, a loving family to ensure faster result. An unhappy dog in a family that does not love them will not look good for sure! So make sure you spend some time with your pet daily no matter how busy you are. It makes a lot of difference to them even if it is just for 10 minutes a day of quality time to cuddle, massage or just be with them doing nothing.

Groom Regularly

Groom them regularly (daily preferred even for short hair coat), this also control shedding. Talk to your local pet shop to ask for recommendation for the coat type of the breed. Some combs/brushes are more suitable for different breed type. Ensure that the brush or comb is quality brush or comb so as not to cause discomfort to your dog. Rounded tip bristle is best as it does not hurt the skin and grooming a more pleasant experience for your pet. One example of quality brushes and grooming needs can be found with Chris Christensen system.

Things to note when grooming your furry friend:

1) Brush or comb in the direction of the hair growth.

2) Place a non slip matt if your floor is too smooth.

3) Talk to your dog and calm him during the session if he fidgets.

Supplementation

Supplement your dog with omega oil to get that shinny gorgeous looking coat of fur. You may use Salmon oil or organic flaxseed oil if their coat appears dry, brittle or have dander problems. These supplements can be easily purchased at your local pet shop or pharmacy. Check to ensure the dosage is administered correctly according to their weight.

Things to note when purchasing flaxseed oil:

1) Check for expiry date, oil left on the shelve for too long can turn rancid especially if the bottles are exposed to light source

2) Get brands that have dark bottles where light source cannot damage the oil quality.

3) Check to ensure that administration of oil is also convenient. I personally prefer the squeezable bottles so there is no mess and no excess leakage problems.

4) Get organic range flaxseed oil. It costs a little more but it is well worth it!
