While not all pets are the same and will not need the same level of care to manage their appearance, regular baths, brush-outs, and nail trims are beneficial to every pet.
They can prevent:
The build-up of dirt, oil, dead skin cells, and loose hair
Painful matting that pulls on the skin, causing irritation
Potential skin infections
Overgrown nails that accumulate bacteria and can grow into the paw pads, affecting your pet’s posture and gait
Ruptured/infected anal glands
Ear mites and ear infections
