Easy Steps to a Beautiful Coat
Brushing helps your pet keep up with grooming! A healthy coat moves keeping pets cool in summer, fluffed up keeps them warm in winter and prevents dog smell and cat dandruff and mats. Brushing helps pets turn over coats, spreads natural oils, and promotes hair growth. Brushing also helps pets look their best and who does not want that!
Brush short-haired pets once a week and long haired pets every few days when shedding. The longer the coat, more care is needed to get through all the hair. If mats can’t be brushed out they may have to be
trimmed out to avoid bacteria and yeast infections of the skin.
- Use a rubber brush to loosen dead skin and dirt (short-haired pets)
- Use an undercoat/shedding rake to remove loose undercoat
- Use a slicker brush to ease out mats and tangles
- Use a bristle brush to remove dead hair
- Use a comb for ears, tails and hair around hocks and feet
Bathe dogs as often as needed. More baths may be needed during allergy season. Cats can be bathed two to three times a year as needed.
It's true, beauty starts from the inside. Give your pet nutrients that promote healthy skin and shiny thick coats. Older pets and problem coat pets benefit from
Doc Roy's® DERMA COAT PLUS
fatty acid vitamin supplement. DERMA COAT PLUS is designed to help the skin and coat resist allergens while giving a healthy shine to coat. If you have a scratching pet, give them Doc Roy's® TRI OMEGA 3
. TRI OMEGA 3 will help soothe skin inflammation due to scratching and allergies and can be used with DERMA COAT PLUS.
Pets enjoy being brushed and bathed and who does not love a beautiful coat! No matter what season, with a little vitamin help, you'll have a happier more beautiful pet!
