Pets are lots of fun when they’re active and romping around, but that doesn’t mean well when it comes to their looks and appearance. Their daily activities could make them look bad. Wouldn’t it be nice though to make them look as though they have just been groomed professionally?
That is possible to achieve, if you just know the right things to do. You can maintain their looks and keep them feeling grand.
Here is a part of an article that appeared on mcdonoughvoice.com, “Keep your pet looking spiffy between grooming appointments with these tips:
Get the tools: A comb, a brush, clippers, a good pair of scissors and toenail clippers are must-haves. Professional dog groomer Lisa Brezina of Spencer, Ind., also recommends buying ear cleaner and styptic powder, an anti-hemorrhagic that helps stop bleeding from minor cuts and toenails that have been trimmed too closely. “I prefer a multi-speed, changeable blade type of clippers,” Brezina says. “You may need different blade lengths and guard combs depending on the style of haircut you are planning.”
Learn the basics: Online video tutorials or one of many available books on pet grooming can provide a helpful base of information for beginners. Look for breed-specific information to make sure you’re using the proper technique for your pet.
Safety first: Exercise caution at all times. For example, instead of using scissors to remove small bits of matted fur, Brezina suggests using clippers with a No. 10 blade as you’ll be less likely to nick your pet’s skin.”
