Bad hair days for dogs

Friday, February 17, 2012
posted by Jim Murphy

Dog hair mats are a mixture of shedding hair, hair, dirt and debris.  These are impossible to brush and can get you and your dog very frustrated.  Long, thick, curly or silky haired dogs are most prone to hair mats, so are dogs that like to play in water. How can you prevent these from forming?  Brush you dog daily with a good quality brush to remove shed fur. If your pet has long hair, consider a hair cut. Bath you pet regularly because clean fur is less likely to mat. Excessive licking or scratching also causes mats so promptly treat the source of your pets itching.  Finally, a strong, healthy coat begins with good nutrition. If you do find a mat, eliminate it right away before that situation becomes much worse.

Remember, your pets count!
