As WebMD Pets puts it, "Even if you don't mind finding a little fur on your favorite pants, grooming your cat or dog can offer both of you real benefits, including preventing painful knots and tangles, minimizing pet dander in the home, helping you catch signs of pet illness or parasites, and boosting the pet-person bond. All you need is a bit of time and the right tools."
And they're right: even if you don't mind being a human lint-catcher when you sit on the couch, shed fur that stays among "live" fur can cause a host of problems -- painful mats that pull up on the skin and pinch; hot spots; hiding places for parasites; and yeast infections on the skin.
There are great tools out there for removing the dead hair; plus, brushing is good for skin and coat anyway, and most dogs enjoy the one-on-one attention from you. Come see us and we'll guide you on how best to de-shed your particular pup -- or we'll do it for you!
