Do you conjure images of brushes and bows in your mind when you hear ‘pet grooming’? Contrary to popular belief, professional pet grooming is necessary for your beloved pet. It’s actually an important aspect of your dog’s health and well-being and helps in getting rid of fleas and ticks, shedding, and early detection of underlying diseases.

Here are a few more reasons to get your dog groomed professionally:

1. Grooming Encourages ‘Good Boy’ Behavior

Did you know brushing your dog’s coat not only helps avoid matting but also helps strengthen the bond the two of you share? Matting or knotting can cause ulcers and abrasions, leading to pain and discomfort. Regular grooming positively affects the mental health and behavior of your dog. After all, a good-looking and good-smelling dog is a joy to be around!

2. Prevent Pain For Longer

An integral part of grooming is trimming your dog’s nails regularly to keep them from curling and becoming hotspots for germs. Uncut nails cause dogs to walk with misaligned pads, which leads to joint pain.

Professional groomers can also detect other health problems while grooming, such as lumps, rashes, infections, and lesions. This allows for early intervention and treatment to cure an existing or potential condition.

3. To Make Your Life Easier

If you have a ton of other errands to run during the day, you’re unlikely to find the time or energy a proper grooming session requires. Leaving the job to a professional pet groomer will take one thing off your plate, making your life a tad bit easier.

It’s also best to avoid grooming your dog yourself if you have a physical ailment because all the muscle movement may take a toll on your body.
