Why Pet Grooming is So Important
Most of us understand the importance of our personal hygiene. It is important not only to make our lives more pleasant, but very important for our health. Just as bathing, brushing our teeth, cutting our hair and trimming our nails is an everyday part of living in human, civilized society, pet grooming is a necessary and common practice in that same civilization. Pet grooming is most commonly offered for dogs and cats, though cats are often more difficult to groom because of their natural aversion to water. Nonetheless, grooming is something that many pet owners have neglected, especially if the pet lives outside or spends a lot of time outdoors. But you should be aware that grooming is not just a just a nice thing, but extremely an important requirement for some dog breeds, for reasons outlined below.
You may groom your pet yourself, but pet grooming is a rewarding occupation, as well as being lucrative. The whole pet industry is a $32 billion a year business and is known for being recession-resistant. In that vast Pet Care Industry, the Pet Grooming segment is the fastest growing. And pet groomers have an historical record of which they can be proud.
In many ways, pet grooming to your animal is like receiving that gentle hug from a loved one. Pet grooming can include some or all of shampoos, flea treatments, hair cuts and exotic styling, pedicures, skin care, and moisturizing treatments. And although it generally starts with giving your pet a bath, grooming is more than just a ‘beauty session’ for your pet. Pets need grooming in order to prevent illness such as skin diseases and parasites. And pets aren’t as efficient as cooling themselves as humans, since they don’t sweat through their skin. So, pet fur trimming is a crucial part of pet grooming to help them maintain the right body temperature.
Don’t forget that pet grooming is an important part of pet ownership. Dogs that are consistently spruced up tend to have a better and shinier coat simply because the act of brushing and combing the dog’s hair stimulates the blood supply to the skin. Stimulating the blood supply puts the skin, and in fact, the whole pet in better health.
Pet Grooming is also a visible expression of your love for your pet. When your pet is groomed, that expression is not only visible to the people all around, but something that your pet feels in a very positive and rewarding way. Overall, pets are more likely to remain healthy, both mentally and physically, when they are kept clean and well groomed. And of course, periodic grooming makes your pet look, smell and feel great.
