A well-groomed and healthy pet is the owner’s pride. But nothing spoils the exterior as much as unhealthy or piled wool. Daily hair combing of cats and dogs – both long-haired and short-haired – should become a habit for many reasons. First of all, it is a guarantee of cleanliness in the house and the animal itself, which means the health of the pet and its owner.
Pet hair combing should be accustomed to almost from birth. Although babies still have short hair, every night it is worth spending some time to get acquainted with the hairbrush. If you walk the comb in the direction of hair growth from head to tail, the baby will definitely like this procedure, he will get used to it. Scratching is a kind of massage, it stimulates blood circulation, improves the condition of the coat, and minimizes the formation of coltuns. Moulting reduces the amount of hair on the floors, walls, furniture, clothing, and in the stomach after licking there will be no wool lumps, which cause vomiting, constipation and even obstruction of the gastrointestinal tract, which can lead to death.
A two-sided comb is best used for combing: the side with a large gap between the teeth removes dust and debris from the cover, the smaller side removes dead hair, the base of the tangles. Special attention is paid to the “armpits” of the animal, the groin and neck. Many people think that combing wool is too much to do, and street cats, for example, do not have tangles. However, it should not be forgotten that the street animal often gets through the bushes and branches, and dying hair remains on these natural combs.
Koltuns do a lot of harm to the animal: they restrict the movement of animals, trying to get rid of them, licks the tangles and wet saliva, resulting in a favorable environment for the development of various bacteria and parasites inside the tangles.
