Interest in pet care is increasing day by day. The popularity of private beauty shops does not make me feel like they are always the same mind to keep my lovely pet always clean and beautiful. However, some beauty salons may be hesitant to take pets because of poor management or too expensive.
If you do not have much experience, but you want to take care of your pets' cleanliness and hygiene yourself as a guardian? From now on, let's start with three basic points: bathing, hair care, and nail shaping.

The best thing to keep in mind when bathing dogs or cats is that you should use pet shampoo and conditioner, not human use. According to Brent Lotz, a pet groomer, the shampoo used by humans is very dangerous because it can poison the pet when swallowed. Therefore, it is better to choose the natural or organic ingredients of the product and make the pet hair shiny. However, it is important to note that if you purchase only low-quality items, you may end up with chemicals that can harm your pets.
When bathing, first dilute the shampoo in water so that it can be completely rinsed later. This is also very important to prevent animal skin from peeling, itching and dryness. Be careful not to leave any shampoo and conditioner ingredients on the fur. After bathing, you should apply essential oil so that you can get a fresh smell from your pet.

Hair care and gargle
Hair care and brushing are also as important as bathing. Especially if it smells good or looks dirty on the outside.
You need to brush your hair for hair care, which not only helps reduce pet hair loss, but also helps prevent allergies. Brushes should be done once or twice a week for a few minutes. Ray Truting, a care groom at the Connecticut Veterinary Center in the United States, stressed that pet hair care is one of the things a caregiver should do. According to him, the brush is the key to keeping puppies and cats clean.
However, it is important to first identify the type of fur of a pet before brushing it up in earnest. Short varieties with short hair should use short combs and medium length varieties with underholes should use combs with longer combs. If the hair is long, it is better to use iron comb.
The easiest way to make brushes effortless is to apply a small amount of baby powder to the hair to prevent tangling. It is also important to spray talc free powder with no talc powder to avoid irritating your pet's skin. When you trim, you should keep your pet standing and get used to this posture every time you care. When a pet gets used to this kind of posture, he or she can take care of it whenever brushing, and the caregiver can work easily.
Brushing is good for dental health as often as possible. It is best to do it every day, but if not, you should be able to do it at least once or twice a week. Toothpastes also have pet products that are toxic to your pet, so you must buy pet toothpaste. You should brush your teeth in a gentle manner so that you can prepare for the attack of your pet.
Cutting the toenails is best left to a professional groomer or hairdresser. However, if it is difficult to do so every time, you should start with careful awareness of a few important things.
The first thing you need to do is get your pets getting used to the sound of a toenail mower. When you cut your toenails, you only have to shave until you can see the pink or black spots at the end. In addition, the nail can be torn by the tool, allowing the tool to be removed immediately after use.
It is good to trim the claws once every 3 to 4 weeks, but if you trim the fur around the claws, you can prevent it from slipping on the floor.
