Things To Consider When Clipping A Dog
Clipping a dog is an art form. Clipping your dog’s coat or nails needs to be carried out in a careful manner to avoid any injuries.
Characteristics of a dog’s breed needs to be considered when clipping its coat. If the coat is not properly clipped, it may lead to dust accumulation in the coat and the animal may start showing signs of skin diseases. This is true especially when grooming is not done in a proper manner.
Clipping your dog’s coat helps to get rid of parasites, and also, the clipping of your dog exposes any parasitic problem that the dog is likely to suffer. Many pet health parlors are available if you are looking for a professional to clip your dog.
Always use sharp clippers. In the colder regions, avoid close clipping as closer clipping in the winter seasons may expose the dog to undue environmental stress and the dog may become more vulnerable to frostbite.
Avoid clipping the coat and especially the nails too close because this may cause injury to the underlying tissues and may cause bleeding your pet.
Avoid any clipping activity when the animal is not healthy.
