5 Effective Ways to Control Shedding

As much as we adore our pets, the same cannot be said for their stray hairs. While it is a natural process to replace damaged hairs, excessive shedding can pose as a frustrating problem for pet owners. From the Siberian cat to the Beagle, here are tips to help control the process.

Frequent brushes

Frequently brushing your dog or cat’s coat is an excellent way to groom your pet while controlling the shedding process. To avoid stray hairs from littering the floor, it is advisable to brush your pet outdoors. If not, do consider engaging in Singapore’s best pet grooming services for your furry friend. At the groomer’s, feel free to request for the use of a lint roller before brushing with a wire slicker brush – an excellent treat for your dog.

Regular bathes

Besides frequent brushing, provide your pet with warm water baths. Do ensure to give your pet a good brushing beforehand, to avoid matted fur. In need of some help? Consult with some of the best pet grooming providers about shampoos and other equipment that can help simplify the process and control shedding.

Use rubber gloves during grooming sessions

Ever wondered why professional groomers always seem to be donning rubber gloves? Excellent for capturing pet hair, a good old pair of rubber gloves will prevent stray hair from littering your apartment. Give it a try and marvel at its effectiveness.

Nip the easy-to-miss areas

When grooming at home, most pet owners have the tendency to miss out on the fur behind the ears, at the paws or right at the joints. As the sensitive points for cats and dogs, do take extra care when grooming your furry companion.

Engage professional pet groomers

Pet grooming services in Singapore is a growing business – you can even enlist the services of mobile pet grooming to visit your home! Not only are these professionals more experienced in pet handling, they will be better at catering to your pet’s needs.

Although it may be impossible to prevent shedding, there are ways to help minimize the process. In addition to controlling shedding, employ the above tips to keep your pet’s fur in tip-top condition!
