Grooming Your Dog Is Healthy
A health routine that includes grooming ensures that your pooch isn’t harboring any skin conditions, cuts or scrapes that you may not be aware of. Gone unnoticed, injuries can become infected and lead to more dangerous health conditions. And if your dog is of the long-haired variety, keeping his or her coat from getting too long can limit the amount of hair ingested.
In fact, in some cases, grooming has even saved a dog’s life, according to iheartdogs.com. Check out this link to read a story about just that: http://iheartdogs.com/can-grooming-your-dog-save-their-life/.
Then there are the stories I’ve read on the Internet about those poor homeless dogs on death row at animal shelters who, after a nice grooming, had better success at being adopted into loving forever homes. Here is a link to just such a story with a happy ending: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tOj-p8ANmM.
