Dental Disease

Oral disease is the most frequently diagnosed health issue for dogs over 2 1/2 to 3 years of age. Over 80% will suffer from this preventable problem.

Plaque – Bacteria and proteins from saliva stick to the tooth and form plaque which constantly coats the teeth. 

It is soft, off-white in colour and can be easily wiped or brushed from tooth surface.

Tartar – Within 48-72 hours, calcium salts are deposited in this plaque film and turned into tartar.

It is a hard yellow-brown crust that cannot be wiped or brushed off. It must be carefully scrap off.

Tartar advances under the gum line and starts a prices called periodontal disease.

Importance of Regular Grooming

Having a regular grooming routine is important. It not only makes your pet presentable, it also allows them to feel good. It is also a way to maintain a proper skin and coat care for your pet. We would emphasize on a fix scheduled grooming session due to many reasons and we are going to share with you on this post.

Knots and Tangle Free

Simple brushing and combing can be done at home by owners themselves. Long coated breeds require regular brushing and combing in order to maintain the coat in tip top condition. Take some time out from your hectic schedule and give your pet the needed brushing and combing. Brushing and combing help removes any knots on your pet’s coat. A tangle and knot free fur allow your pet’s skin to breathe with ease.

Trimmed Nails

Untrimmed nails cause your pet to be in pain when they walk. In order to allow them to walk comfortably and pain-free, trim their nails regularly. If you’re unsure on how to trim or dare not to do it yourself, contact us and schedule a nail trimming session. It is advisable to do it at least once a month to maintain well-trimmed nails.

Physical Checks

Be it at home or with the groomer, regular grooming allows your pet to be physically checked. Any visible condition such as rashes, lumps or infections can be detected early before it gets worse.

It also allows you to spot any pests on your pet, such as fleas or ticks. And you are able to get it treated immediately with a medicated bath.

Express Anal Gland

Most owners do not know the importance of expressing the anal gland. Some pets may not be able to excrete out the glands neutrally and requires our help. An impacted and infected anal sac may cause a rupture that will leave a nasty wound after.

Check your pet’s anal sac and if you do not know how to empty it, always seek help from your vet or groomer.

Teeth Brushing

Many ignored this important oral hygiene. Like us, your pet needs its teeth brushed regularly.

Brushing and checking your pet’s teeth allows you to know if there’s anything wrong such as chip or decay. These may require a dental check at the vet.
