Grooming your pet is an important part of being their owner. By keeping your pet clean, you are doing your part to keep them healthy too. Infections can start with dirty coats, un-manicured paws, or even from buildup inside their ears! The attention to grooming required for pets varies depending on the type of breed, but they all need to stay clean. Pugs even need their wrinkles cleaned! (we’ll cover that) Pack animals in the wild take turns grooming each other for cleanliness and health. By grooming your pet you are strengthening your bond with them as a member of the family.
Keeping your dog’s ears clean is vital for their health and comfort. The frequency that their ears need to be cleaned varies by breed. Some dogs have floppy ears which naturally help protect the insides from dirt and other bacterias, while others have erect ears that easily become infiltrated with dirt and grime. The hairier your dog’s ears are, the more common it is for bacteria to build up and cause infections. Some dogs love getting their ears cleaned, but many do not. Be sure to have treats nearby to encourage your dog to let you groom them properly. Here’s how it’s done.
Pugs are a very unique breed due to the fact that their facial folds need to be cleaned regularly. As Pugs were a creation of generations worth of dog breeding, they do not have a natural way to clean these wrinkles themselves. Here’s an easy guide to keeping those wrinkles clean and infection free.
We hope this was helpful and informative to help you keep your dogs clean and infection free!
