Dog Coat Care Information

You may not be aware of it, but matts are a serious problem and can be detrimental to your pets well being, many owners do not understand how unhappy this condition makes their pet. Matts can become so tight it can tear the skin and cut blood circulation off to areas that are affected. Matting can also restrict the pet’s movement, creating a veritable straightjacket. Some pet owners think that because the dog is chewing and scratching there must be a flea or skin problem.... but not always, many problems can result from or be aggravated by the presence of matts. Often Matting will also hide other problems; sores, infections, cuts and maggots often result from un-maintained coats.

Matting is Painful!
Imagine how your head would feel if your hair was matted. Imagine trying to brush those matts out. Now imagine how your pet feels. But on pets, the matter is worse, as mats occur in the groin area, in armpits, around tails - all areas that move when the pets move, and the hair is constantly being tugged - ouch! Pets’ skin is just as sensitive as our own skin.


You will find in the long run, proper coat maintenance will cost you less and your pet will be much happier.
