The secret of regular combing

The secret of regular combing

With the arrival of spring, the weather is finally warming up, the days are getting longer and our furry friends can't wait for proper walks and outdoor fun. However, just as we take off our coats in the spring, our pets also get rid of their thick winter fur. Get inspired by our tips and prepare your dog and cat for the coming spring with proper fur care.

The very first step to reviving your pet's fur should be brushing it. It doesn't matter what type of coat it has, with or without an undercoat, brushing will benefit your pet and keep it shed-free. However, the type of brush you use to comb your dog or cat depends on the type of fur.

Short fur generally does not require so much attention over the course of a year, so a rubber combing glove or a brush with thick bristles will come in handy for spring cleaning. For long fur, go for a comb with wide gaps to comb the matted fur or a brush with dense metal or plastic teeth. It is important to pay attention to how gentle the brush is to the skin. You will find out easily when you run the brush over your hand yourself. If it scratches you, it probably won't be pleasant for your pet either.

A dietary supplement that strengthens the quality of the skin and coat is, for example, the product Fitmin Purity Coat and skin. Thanks to its powder form, you can mix it with a pouch or canned meat and give it to the dog directly during feeding.

Even though the dog's coat is extremely important for its health, don't forget to check the overall condition of the animal during the preparations for the spring months. When bathing, be sure to check the ears and eyes to make sure they are clean and healthy. Don't forget the claws, which may need to be trimmed. That way you will know that you have not underestimated the preparation for spring and your pet will enjoy the coming season not only in beauty but especially in health.

Regular brushing removes dead hair, distributes natural oils for a clean and healthy coat, stimulates the surface of the skin, gets rid of dead and dry skin, and helps you become familiar with your dog's body. You should brush your dog every couple of days no matter the length of his coat. This will keep your Dog in top condition and well loved
