Whether you have just one dog or cat, or you’re a professional dog groomer, you know how important it is to keep your pet clean and groomed.

Why Using the Right Dog Clipper Blades is Important

With the right grooming habits, you can keep shedding under control, untangle hair, prevent and control skin conditions, and more. Revival® Animal Health offers numerous pet grooming clipper blades from Andis®, Oster® and Wahl® – everything you need to keep your dog or cat looking their best!

Keep in mind, when it comes to pet grooming clipper blades; the higher the number of the blade, the shorter and finer the cut. The blade number will determine the type of cut you get. So for example, a 50 blade is at the skin, where as a 3 blade leaves the fur longer.

You’ll always want to make sure you are using a cool running blade. And even with cool running blades, it’s always a good idea while grooming, no matter what blade you’re using to touch the blade to your wrist often to make sure it’s not getting too hot. If it’s hot on your skin, it is hot on the dog too. When you have a warm blade, use Andis®Cool Care Plus® or Oster®Kool Lube Spray often
to avoid irritating the pet’s skin.
