Throughout the chaos of modern life, one thing is constant; we all like to look our best. Whether it’s for that important dinner-date, or simply for an afternoon walk to the shops, no one likes to feel that their appearance is letting them down. In an effort to look our best we purchase all manner of products, from cosmetic kits and expensive shampoos to designer clothes and fashionable accessories, and we use shop windows as mirrors to check and double-check our appearance.
If you haven’t already, spare a thought for your beloved canine; their coat is their whole appearance, and they wear it every day. At times, it may look glowing and full; at others, dishevelled and thinning. Yet, it can never be changed for a more desirable one. As a dog-owner, you are responsible for ensuring that your dog always looks their best, and there are a number of products available from VioVet that can help you to do this.
One of the most important ways that you can improve the quality of your dog’s coat is to take an interest in what they eat. Orijen Dog Food is a great way to provide your canine with the necessary nutrients that are required for a healthy lifestyle, but it is also remarkably well-suited for coat management. Developed with a unique biologically-appropriate ingredient ratio (70% meat, 30% fruit and vegetables, and 0% grain), Orijen is a well-respected brand that comes highly recommended.
A second way to provide your canine with a distinctive and enviable coat is to opt for a home-grooming kit. Furminator offer a comprehensive range of grooming products that are remarkably effective in maintaining your dog’s natural coat. The Furminator rake is adept at removing loose hair from thick and tangled coats, and an impressive range of waterless and traditional shampoos will help your dog to shine and sparkle with lasting cleanliness.
Home pet grooming is not very difficult to handle and can help you to build and maintain a healthy relationship with your pet. A further benefit is that you may notice a physical change, like lumps or bumps, which needs medical attention. Brushing is an important aspect and should happen daily; it removes dead hair and tangles and distributes natural skin oils. Be gentle and avoid scraping the skin. You may also use olive oils on your dog’s coat. It is a good way rehydrate the coat and to protect the skin. Another main aspect of dog grooming is clipping the nails. Be careful and don’t clip into the quick, otherwise the nail will bleed and your dog will experience pain. Also think of clipping the hair between the paws.
VioVet offer a number of other products that are useful for managing your dog’s coat, but the above suggestions are a great place to start. A dog’s appearance can say a lot about their owner, and helping your canine to develop a strikingly natural coat can be as rewarding as buying that new dress or having that new hair-cut. And your dog will love you for it.
