Grooming At Home
Taking your pet to the groomer may be easy and convenient, but it can also be expensive, time-consuming, and some dogs are downright terrified of being handled by unfamiliar people. For many reasons, pet owners turn to grooming their dogs at-home in order to save time, money, and stress. Listed below are all the products you need to groom your dog at home.
Finding the Right Shampoo
There are a number of shampoo types available, but which is the right one for your pet? If your dog is young or suffers from extremely sensitive skin, NuVet’s Puppy & Kitten Shampoo is a good choice. Formulated specially for the sensitive skin of young pets, Puppy & Kitten shampoo is hypoallergenic and pH balanced, with no harsh soaps or detergents.
Is your dog one of the millions of pets in America that is affected by dry, flaky skin, hot spots, or allergies? If so, NuVet Hot Spot Tea Tree Shampoo is recommended. Not just for hot spots relief, this tea tree formulated solution provides instant relief to redness, irritation, and inflammation thanks to soothing ingredients such as coconut oil, tea tree oil, and Vitamins A, D, and E. With no alcohol, soaps, or detergents, pets with sensitive skin won’t suffer from dry skin after a bath, which is important for their comfort.
If your dog is prone to being smelly, an odor eliminating shampoo, like NuVet Odor Control Pet Shampoo is a necessity. This product combines the soap, alcohol, and detergent free properties of other NuVet shampoos with almond oil, fruit, and floral extracts to eliminate odors.
Once you find the best shampoo for your dog’s needs, invest in a highly absorbent towel to make drying and brushing after the bath a breeze, and to also eliminate the “wet dog” smell around the house.
To give your pet the full grooming treatment, there are a number of additional services that you can provide for your pet at home. A common part of a full-service groom is an ear cleaning. Regular ear treatments are important in order to keep ear mites, infections, and inflammation away. Purchase a gentle ear cleaner, such as NuVet Therapeutic Ear Treatment for this task. Another common grooming component is a nail trim. If your pet will allow it, trim his or her nails after the bath in order to keep paws comfortable. Pet parents should also invest in a good pair of straight-edge scissor to trim feet, tail, muzzle, and fur around the eyes if your dog is receiving a bath in between haircuts.
In Between Baths
Does your pet have a tendency to develop matted or clumped fur in between grooming appointments? Or, is your dog resistant to the bathing process in general? A good alternative to a bath is a conditioning spray, which not only soothes sensitive skin, but acts as a dry shampoo as well. NuVet’s Conditioning Oatmeal Spray conditions skin and fur while reducing redness, itchiness, and inflammation.
