Things to consider between groomings:
• Trimming nails every 3-4 weeks is an important part of your dog’s well being. Dog nails have a nerve (called a quick) with a blood supply. If the quick is clipped, the nail will bleed and the dog will experience pain. Maintaining short nails will allow the quick to recede making the next nail trimming a breeze!
• Brushing and combing your dog every week will help prevent matting and skin problems such as hot spots. Gently brushing against the lay of the coat with a quality brush will help make your furry friend fluffy while retaining essential oils!
• Feeding a nutritious diet with foods concentrated in protein, fruits and vegetables will promote both keeping your dog looking beautiful on the outside but feeling great on the inside!
