Taking proper care of your dogs claws - essential for great overall health

Hygienic care is essential for your dog’s health and comfort. A few simple routines, like trimming your furry friend’s nails and coat, or even cleaning his ears, can significantly improve your pup’s daily life. Taking a few minutes to groom your pet at home will not only keep him in shape but will also help you bond even more with your pooch, while also avoiding expensive visits to the groomer.

How often should you groom your dog? Or what usually entails? The answer to these questions varies from breed to breed and according to your pooch’s lifestyle. You should take into account how much fur he has, or if he is constantly out wasting his nails and coming back full of mud.

Regardless of your dog’s characteristics, you can perform many basic grooming tasks safely at home. In this article, we’ll show you the easiest way to take care of your pup in 3 easy steps:

1. FACE

One of the most important parts of dogs. Through the face they see, smell, hear, and taste. Making regular checkups in this area is important to their well-being, so take a look at all cavities in your puppy’s face: eyes, nose, ears, and mouth.

 

Eyes

Check your dog’s eyes for dirt and tear scabs. Excessive build-up can cause infection. To avoid any discomfort, use the Dog Cleaning Wipes to clean up your pet’s eyes whenever you notice something stuck around it.

Also, look for any signs of dryness, swelling, or redness, this could be a sign of irritation or other illnesses, such as keratoconjunctivitis. In that case, consider taking your dog to the vet.

 

Nose

A healthy dog should have a moist nose, although sometimes it’s normal to be dry after a long nap, due to dry air, or even after sunburn. To avoid dryness, make sure your pup always has water available to stay hydrated.

In addition, you can apply the Healing Paw Soother Balm to his nose to moisturize. Natural ingredients combine mango butter. rice bran oil, sunflower oil, carnauba wax, and vitamin E, which are ideal to soothe any dry area of your pet.

 

Ears

Your dog’s ears can collect lots of dirt and wax. To keep it clean, apply the Dog Cleaning Wipes to the folds and flaps of the ears once a month.

PS: Never use human cotton swabs to clean your pet’s ears, as they can severely damage his eardrums.

 

Mouth

Like humans, your pup can get cavities, tartar, and plaque if his teeth are not brushed regularly. To provide him a good breath, brush his teeth with a dog toothpaste or use a chew toy to keep his mouth clean and prevent illness.

2. COAT

Brush your dog’s fur daily to keep all dirt and dead hair away from your pup. It’s also a way to keep the coat neat, shiny, and smooth.

 

If your dog has long hair, you should also trim his fur from time to time. This task requires a keen eye and patience (for you and your pet). To make it easier, try to keep your puppy busy with extra treats or toys while you’re trimming.

 

Use hair clippers or scissors to trim his coat, and position him on an elevated table. Always start from the neck and work down to the tail following the direction of the hair. Be careful with delicate areas, like the underbelly, armpit, and tail.

Lastly, groom the head. Hold still your dog’s head to carefully trim his face. Follow his facial lines and gently trim the ear flaps, the eyebrows, below the jaws, and the sides of the face.

3. PAWS

One of your dog’s most sensitive parts is his paws. They absorb shock, provide traction and insulation to keep him warm, and get a grip on the floor. His nails are also essential for walking comfort, keeping your pet upright, and his joints healthy. That’s why paw and nail care are essential for your pet to get the most of life.

Paw care

Paws are the first to feel the weather change also protecting the feet from extreme temperatures, so make sure they’re always in good health for your pooch’s comfort.

After a stroll, your pup’s feet will become dirty and some small debris may end up lodged in his paws. Use the Paw Plunger to comfortably remove all the dirt without damaging your pup’s skin.

It’s extremely important to ensure that your furball paws are moisturized, as dry feet tend to crack and bleed. To avoid this discomfort, apply the Healing Paw Soother Balm on his footpads and elbows. You can apply it daily after cleansing, resulting in smooth, and healthy skin in just a few days.

Nail care

A task commonly neglected by pet owners, nail trimming is essential to your pet’s comfort and health. Overgrown nails tend to bend and press into his paws, hurting your pooch. To prevent your dog from any pain, use LuckyTail Nail Grinder for safe and quick nail shortening.

Grinding your pooch’s nails every two weeks will ensure a comfortable walk to enjoy, play, run as much as your dog can. If you want to know how to grind your dog’s nails at home, check out this article on the LuckyTail blog.
