Why You Should Use a Muzzle During Pet Grooming
Home pet grooming can be an experience for both animal and owner. The activity stresses out some dogs and cats and they behave differently when they are getting a bath or having their nails clipped. They may snip or bite at the pet groomer even if they are the ones they love. A loving, docile pet can become all teeth and nails if they do not want to be there. The best, most humane way to protect both human and animal during pet grooming is to use a muzzle. Though some people think that a muzzle is cruel, it can keep the animal restrained and stop them from possible doing harm.
The Proper Way to Bath Your House Pet
One of the keys to successfully bathing your pet is to make sure that you are in a safe enviroment. If you are putting your dog or cat in a tub or sink while you bath them make sure that they aren't going to slip. Placing a rubber mat in the tub or sink will give your pet a sense of security, rubber door mats work really well for this purpose. Also make sure that you aren't going to slip if water gets splashed on the floor. If you are using a hose to bath your dog outside, make sure you are in an area where they feel secure, and that, if they pull away from you grasp, they wont be able to run out into traffic.
Pet Grooming to Prevent Hairballs
Cat owners know that where there are cats there are also hairballs. Cats oral grooming habits involve swallowing large quantities of hair. Most of the swallowed hair passes harmlessly through the cat's digestive system. Problems occur when instead of passing through the cat's digestive system the hair remains in the cat's digestive system. As time passes the undigested hair collects with other undigested hair, these hairs stick together, until a hairball forms in the cat's stomach. The larger the hair ball becomes, the greater a risk it poses to the cat's health and well being.
