When it comes to your pet, matted fur is more than just a cosmetic faux pas. Those mats can cause serious skin issues and other medical problems.
Even small mats can bother your four-legged friend. They provide the perfect cover for fleas and ticks. And mats on your pet’s backside get soiled and smelly, sometimes even blocking your buddy’s eliminations.
As mats in the fur enlarge, they can lead to skin infections and maggot infestations.
So be sure that good grooming is part of your pet’s health plan. The longer the fur, the more often you should brush. And if mats form, they need to be clipped right away. Use the proper clipping tool to avoid injuring the skin.
Beauty may only be skin deep, but that skin is an important part of your pet’s health.
