Canine Health and Hygiene
Grooming your dog is an essential part of your dog's health as it improves their quality of life. Having your pet groomed by a professional on a regular basis often helps in the early detection of arising medical issues. A professional groomer can help to identify the following medical concerns:
- Skin and Coat Conditions
Unless they have a penchant for rolling in the mud and dirt, most dogs only need to be bathed every 2 to 4 weeks. Bathing your dog too often can actually wash away the natural oils their bodies produce that are necessary for proper skin and fur health, especially for those with sensitive skin. At Ultimate Canine Care, we use hypoallergenic shampoos that are safe for those special needs pets!
Matting can affect their skin and coat health. We recommend brushing your dog every few days as regular brushing not only leaves them looking and feeling fantastic, but also helps keep them matt-free. We can offer brushing techniques and the appropriate tools for purchase to use at home.
You should check the length of your dog's nails every 2 weeks. Keeping your canine's nails short helps them walk comfortably and prevents potential injuries.
Prevent ear infection by keeping their ears clean and free of debris. Cleaning your pup's ears at least once a week will keep them comfortable and help them avoid serious health issues.
