Regular Pet Grooming Can Help Reduce Shedding
In other parts of the world, pets shed their fur in seasons. As the weather changes, house pets grow and lose their hair in cycles. In Southern California, the weather changes aren’t significant enough to cause this to happen. Instead, our pets tend to shed all year round. This adds up to a lot of hair on our carpets, furniture and clothing. While brushing your pet at home can reduce the amount of loose hair on your pet, regular grooming is your best defense against excessive shedding.
Professional grooming removes loose hair
Professional pet grooming helps remove dead hair in several ways. When your pet receives a bath at the pet salon, your groomer’s goal is to remove as much loose hair as possible. This starts with the way that the warm water is directed into their fur. The shampoo is then massaged deep into their coat, encouraging loose hair removal. After their bath, pets are dried with a high powered hand dryer. This dryer removes even more loose hair, preventing it from ending up in your car or home. Once dry, your pet is thoroughly brushed. This final brushing takes care of any extra hair that might be left over after the bath.
Regular trips to the groomer reduces shedding
Professional pet grooming is an extremely effective way to control shedding. For best results, pets should be groomed every four to six weeks. Even though it might be tempting to bathe your pet more often, additional baths between monthly grooming visits should be avoided as they can dry out the skin. Dry skin is itchy and more prone to damage and infection. Between baths, pets can be brushed at home to remove any loose hairs and prevent tangles. Ask your groomer which type of brush is best for your pet’s coat.
