Too many pet owners leave Puppy Paradise
everyday saying that the great haircut their pet just
received should hold over “until the weather gets
Unfortunately, it is common misconception among pet owners
that their pets need a thick matted coat to keep warm
during the winter. Actually, this is falsehood that can
do more harm than good.
A dense, matted coat may appear warm but,
these thick layers of hair contribute to many skin disorders.
A matted pet’s skin over time locks
moisture under the hair and dries the skin, and this repeated
process can contribute to many skin problems from dry
skin to dermatitis, infected ears, painfully long toenails
and other complex rashes which take weeks to go away and
can cost a lot in medical expenses.
Your pet’s skin needs as much cleansing
and moisturization as yours does. Every winter many people
suffer from mild bouts with dry, cracked skin that is
easily treatable with lotions. But imagine if you had
a thick mat of hair covering that dry skin. Doesn’t
sound comfortable, huh? But how can you avoid making your
pet suffer through a long, harsh winter?
The simple, easy, and inexpensive way
is through regular grooming. For most breeds, once every
6 to 8 weeks is enough to keep their coat in top condition
and their skin, ears, and nails healthy.
Many studies have shown that light, fluffy
coats are far warmer than thick, matted coats in the cold
weather. When matted, hair becomes compressed and loses
much of it s insulating properties.
Also, by maintaining your pet’s
coat throughout the winter, you can avoid shaving him
or her down for the summer months, a style which many
pet owners feel guilty about giving to their pets.
At Puppy Paradise, we can pamper your
pet and keep him or her looking and feeling great all
