In order to maintain the health of your pets hair you should provide these nutrients:


  • Omega-3 fatty acids

  • Linoleic acid

  • Zinc

  • Biotin


The condition of your pets skin and hair are good indicators of its health.


If you want your pet to maintain it’s healthy skin and hair, it requires a high quality and balanced diet that has digestible proteins, carbohydrates, fats, minerals and vitamins.


A pet whose diet doesn’t fulfill his needs will have a dull, dry hair and will often shed excessively.


When to groom your pet:


Breeds that grow hair continuously without shedding require regular grooming .


Where other breeds that have long, thick hair coats with both an outer coat and an undercoat they go through two heavy seasonal shedding cycles per year, where a lot of the undercoat falls out. They require regular baths and combing.

Many short-haired breeds don’t have an undercoat, and these breeds often shed hair in low levels all year round. They require regular combing

Illness or stress, especially if it is chronic or long-standing, will affect the appearance of your dog’s coat, particularly its shine and texture, and many dogs will shed excessively when they are under stress


If the dog is healthy, it requires bathing when their hair becomes dirty or when they develop a odor."


Grooming helps remove fallen hairs and dead skin cells, clean the hair and skin, get rid of external parasites, and help spread natural skin oils across the hair.


What does your pets fur or hair say about it?


Thinning hair could be caused by a thyroid gland that doesn't make enough hormones.


Dull hair could be caused due to a lack of healthy fats in its diet.


Smelly fur even when he's clean Could be due to a bacterial yeast infection, allergy, or hypothyroidism.

Dogs require showering when they become dirty or smelly.


Showering too often is bad for the dogs skin.


Once a month is generally more than enough However Dogs with an oily skin need bathing once a week.


Breeds with water-repellent coats should be bathed less often so as to preserve their natural oils.

Cats don’t require showering since they do it themselves but this is how to do it:


Fill half of the sink with warm water then wet the cat from the shoulders to the tail and apply shampoo. Since cats really hate water splashed on their face, use a cloth gently to clean it’s head. Put it in a towel and fold it around it and make sure to dry the cat well.

Only use a cotton ball to clean inside its ears.

Start trimming claws from when they are young so that they get used to it because they usually hate it.


Rest the cat in your lap, take one of her toes in your hand, lightly press the center of its paw until the nail come out. trim only the sharp tip of one nail (to be safe leave a bit of the white part and never cut the pink part of the nail), release your cat’s toe and give it a treat. don’t trim more than two claws in one sitting until your cat is comfortable. When you are done, play with it as a reward.
