6 Reasons Why You Should Take Your Dog To A Groomer

6 Reasons Why You Should Take Your Dog To A Groomer

dog, groomer, bow

Keeping Fido looking his best is a priority for many dog parents. Our previous post elaborated on how to find a good dog groomer, but didn’t say why we need a dog groomer.

If you are more of a do-it-yourselfer when it comes to your pup’s coat and nail maintenance, or you are just not sure about sending your pup to a professional dog groomer, continue reading to learn why you might want to give it a try.

1. Experience

You know and love your dog a lot. However, a dog groomer not only knows and loves dogs but also understands everything there is to know about dog fur and how to take care of it. Dogs of all shapes and sizes have probably walked through your groomer’s door. Trust that they have the experience required to properly care for your dog’s fur.

2. Great Products

Just like a human hair salon, a professional groomer has access to high quality products. They will have a variety of shampoos and conditioners formulated especially for dogs.

Your groomer should be able to determine which product will benefit your pet most, based on their hair and skin type. They will also be able to suggest products that you can purchase at home. Don’t be afraid to ask for recommendations.

One product many dog parents are turning to in an effort to maintain a shiny and healthy coat in their dog is NuVet Plus. To see what they have to say, visit NuVet Labs Facebook page.

3. Nail Trimming

A common issue that dog parents face is trimming their dog’s nails. Energetic dogs, coupled with lack of grooming experience and improper nail trimming equipment, can lead to the headache that is cutting a dog’s nails.

Injury to dogs and owner alike are not that uncommon. By allowing a trusted groomer to take over, you save yourself the headache and can relax knowing the job is being done properly.

4. Proper Equipment

A major bonus of taking your dog to a professional is the equipment your groomer has access to. Proper equipment helps make the grooming process more streamlined.

Special clippers, tubs and other equipment are all designed with the safety and well being of dogs in mind. As a result, you can prevent some of the safety issues, such as slipping in the tub, that a typical bathroom can pose for your dog.

5. Great Looking Pup

One of the greatest benefits for visiting the groomer is witnessing how great your dog looks and feels. In addition to a great new haircut, your pup may receive a massage that can help loosen any tense muscles, as well as de-stress your dog.

Your groomer will also be able to provide you with hair care tips to help keep Fido looking his best. Another great way to help support a healthy and shiny skin and coat for your dog is to provide him with NuVet Plus for dogs, which is trusted by dog parents and pet professionals everywhere.

6. Second Set of Well-Trained Eyes

During the grooming process, your groomer will be on the lookout for any strange skin issues, which they can alert you to. Your groomer will also be able to notice if your pup has any ticks or fleas. Since your groomer only sees Fido occasionally, they can provide an unbiased set of eyes that may be helpful.

Fortunately for pet parents, there are individuals who have devoted a large part of their lives to pet care. Don’t hesitate to take advantage of dog care experts, such as groomers, in your neighborhood.

Just like grooming, good nutrition is also important, which is why we created NuVet Plus canine formula. Formulated with a dog’s special needs in mind, you can feel confident in providing your pooch with this human-grade nutritional supplement.

DIY Organic Shampoo for Your Dog

DIY, dog shampoo, organic shampoo

There is a wide range of doggie shampoos available on the market these days, and choosing the right one to suit your four-legged family member’s needs can be extremely difficult. Imagine if you could formulate your dog’s own shampoo the way you want to, as much as you want and whenever you want. Fortunately for you, you can! Here is a DIY organic doggie shampoo recipe that you can easily follow at home!

Why Make Your Own Organic Doggie Shampoo?

There are several reasons that some people prefer to make their own doggie shampoo instead of buying commercially sold ones. For example, making your own organic shampoo can save time and money. The ingredients for the shampoo can be cheaply bought from the market and you can make as much as you want. Plus, you don’t have to take a trip to the pet store every time you run out.

Another benefit of DIY organic shampoo is that you know exactly what the ingredients are and where they’re from. You can even adjust the ingredients to fit your dog’s needs. By making your own doggie shampoo, it is almost as if you have an unlimited supply of tailor-made shampoo for your canine companion at home.

Ingredients and Materials

  • 1 empty squeeze bottle – 12-16 oz. (larger if you want to make 2x the amount)
  • 1/2 cup organic liquid castile soap – made from olive oil, this gentle substance will serve as the base for your doggie shampoo.
  • 1/4 cup organic apple cider vinegar – fights odor and repels fleas, keeping your pup smelling lovely. It also adds gleam to your dog’s fur.
  • 1 tbsp. organic olive oil – this essential oil is conditioning. It also helps prevent your dogs hair from drying out.
  • 2 tbsp. water – for mixing and diluting
  • Organic lavender essential oil – Lavender has a calming property, which could be beneficial during bath time. It is also a natural tick and flea repellant.
  • Organic eucalyptus oil – fights unwanted odor, fleas, ticks and can help soothe sensitive skin.

Procedure

  1. Using a funnel, pour 1/2 cup of organic liquid castile soap into the squeeze bottle.
  2. Add the apple cider vinegar to the castile soap.
  3. Put in a tablespoon of olive oil.
  4. Add 2 tablespoons of water.
  5. Put in 4 drops of lavender essential oil and 4 drops of eucalyptus essential oil to the mixture.
  6. Shake well. Make sure to shake before use because the ingredients tend to settle at the bottom of the bottle.

Note: You can adjust the amount of the essential oils you put in the shampoo. You can play around with the ratio, depending on how you want it. If you want to add other essential oils, just make sure that it is safe for your pet and not to use too much of it.

How to Use

  1. Wet your pup with lukewarm water and apply an ample amount of shampoo. This is not a tearless shampoo so avoid the eye area.
  2. Lather well.
  3. Rinse thoroughly and completely.
  4. Towel dry and groom Fido any way you want.
  5. Enjoy the rest of the day with a fresh-smelling and happier pup!

Canine Shampoo

It will be fun creating your own shampoo for your dog, especially if you can see how effective it is in keeping your pup’s coat beautiful and healthy looking. However, if you prefer to leave shampoo making to the professionals, Nuvet has various shampoo products.

Some of the NuVet shampoo products include a hypoallergenic conditioning shampoo for dry skin, tearless puppy and kitten shampoo, soothing tea tree shampoo, and odor control pet shampoo. All of NuVet’s shampoo products are soap and detergent free so they will not extract crucial oils from your pet’s skin.

Aside from keeping your pet’s fur in top condition, it is just as important to maintain their inner beauty. To do this, give them a nutritional pet supplement such as NuVet Plus. NuVet Plus helps keep your pet healthy from the inside out.

NuVet Plus is made from natural ingredients and is manufactured in a FDA registered lab which is why more and more dog parents are choosing NuVet Plus for their pets. See what dog lovers have to say about NuVet products on NuVet’s Facebook page.


Pets Love Chicken Liver!

Pets Love Chicken Liver!

Many pet owners know that their pet will gobble up a chicken liver in a matter of seconds, but they don’t realize how beneficial this organ meat is for their pet. Chicken liver is filled with nutrients that can help boost your pet’s overall health and help keep them healthy, but it’s not always convenient to retrieve a chicken liver from the butcher and prepare it for your dog. Pet owners should know that their dog can enjoy all of the benefits of chicken liver, without going through the inconvenience of going to the butcher, by supplementing their pet’s daily diet with NuVet Plus.

 What are the Health Benefits Associated with Chicken Liver?

• Chicken liver is a rich source of essential amino acids, B-vitamins, folic acid and proteins. Liver is an excellent source of protein for your pet, supporting muscle development and energy levels. It also contains a sufficient amount of fat and Vitamin A, which promotes longevity and quality of life for your pet. Liver, however, should only be offered in moderation.

• Chicken liver is also filled with nutrients such as copper, phosphorous, magnesium, zinc and iron. It also contains Omega-3 fatty acids. These nutrients are important components of a healthy, well-balanced diet. The compounds in chicken liver aid in digestion, help to strengthen the nervous system, promote proper tissue development and the production of red blood cells. The properties in chicken liver can be especially beneficial in pets with low iron levels.

• In addition to all of the physical health benefits associated with chicken liver, it can also help your canine or feline companion lead a stress-free life. Research has shown that dogs who consume chicken liver show reduced stress levels and are considered happier than dogs that do not enjoy the benefits of chicken liver. By aiding to relieve stress and support mood balance, chicken liver helps prevent your pet from participating in problem behaviors associated with stress or anxiety.

It is true that chicken liver can easily be purchased from your local supermarket or butcher shop. However, that requires you to properly clean and prepare the organ before serving it to your furry friend. Luckily, there is an easier way to provide the delicious taste and various health benefits associated with chicken liver to your pet. Simply purchase NuVet Plus supplements for your pet. This nutritional supplement is designed to provide your dog with a nutritionally-balanced diet, which includes the highest quality natural ingredients. The chicken liver included in the NuVet Plus supplement is 100 percent pure chicken liver and has been paddle-dried in order to preserve the maximum amount of nutrients in the organ.
