3 reasons to make grooming a priority for your dog

SPONSORED

Is your four-legged friend in need of a visit to the groomer but you’ve been putting it off? Booking regular grooming appointments is not just a matter of physical appearance. Peter and Jeannie Gabor of the Downers-Grove based Cedar Lane Kennels offer these reasons why pet owners should make appointments for professional dog grooming services a priority:

1. Maintains health

When it comes to diseases, early detection is key. During appointments, groomers are able to give the dog’s entire body a thorough once-over, allowing them to feel for any abnormal lumps or swelling or note any areas which are causing pain. Regular grooming also removes excess hair, making it easier to detect the presence of fleas or ticks. Additionally, being up close and personal with your furry friend allows the groomer to detect any strong odors which could mean an underlying medical issue. Grooming can also help keep your pet’s coat in shape, which allows for better body temperature regulation. Cedar Lane Kennels uses premium shampoos and grooming tools which are customized to your dog’s needs.

2. Keeps households cleaner

Regularly scheduled groomings help to cut down on shedding and dander in your house. The more a dog is brushed or combed, the less hair and dander will end up on the floors and furniture. For those who are allergy-prone, regular grooming can also help ward off flare-ups. Grooming can also help keep your pet’s coat in shape, which allows for better body temperature regulation and insulates against the heat and cold.

3. Helps build trust

Regular grooming visits helps your pet build trust and create a bond with both you and the groomer. But for that to happen, the experience should be an enjoyable one. Rest assured, you will find it at Cedar Lane Kennels staff, where grooming is a passion for the staff and pets are treated to one-on-one pampering.
