Some owners complain that their dogs are constantly scratching although they are scrupulous about eradicating fleas and other skin parasites. There is no need to let him suffer – and, let’s face it, a dog that is constantly scratching or chewing his coat is pretty irritating to have around, too. If you discuss it with your Cardiff dog groomer here at Mucky Pups you will almost certainly find the cause is either matted hair in the coat or a dry and flaky skin. Just like humans, fur babies need their skin to be moisturised and soft to prevent irritation and also for the dead hair to be combed or brushed out regularly.
If your dog has a really badly matted coat he may need a fairly drastic looking cut but there is no need to worry. The coat grows back really quickly and your Chepstow dog groomer can help you learn techniques for grooming which even an unwilling dog will learn to enjoy. The salon has a wide range of brushes, combs and mitts to help you keep the new, shiny coat in peak condition and stop the itch/scratch cycle.
