Grooming is extremely important for your dog and cat’s healthy, happiness, and general well-being. It’s best to groom your pets daily if you can, and you should bring your dog for a professional groom every four to ten weeks (depending on the breed of your pup).
For cats, professional grooming should be scheduled every 4-6 weeks, especially if they shed a lot or are a breed prone to fut matting, such as Persians, Himalayans, Maine Coon, and other long hair cats.
How you groom is just as important as the frequency of the grooming. The undercoat must be removed to maintain good fur health and prevent painful matting. Not only are matts painful, but they also keep air from circulating through the coat and can cause serious health issues.
De-matting of hard knots is unpleasant for your dog and cat and expensive for you, but a little preventive pet maintenence can go a long way.
