Grooming your pet
Whatever pet you might have, whether it is a dog, cat or rabbit, they will need to be groomed.
There are a variety of products on the market, which can help you in this task. Grooming products include brushes, combs and gloves, which can be used to make your pet look tidy and presentable.
Before you begin to groom your animal, they will need to be bathed and washed to ensure that their skin and fur is clean in preparation for grooming. There are specialist shampoos for different animals, which have been specially produced to clean them thoroughly. Using shampoo for humans is not advised when shampooing your dog or cat because they are often heavily perfumed and might irritate the skin.
Once their fur is dry, position the animal comfortably on your knee or on a work surface and then start to brush through their fur firmly but carefully, ensuring that the brush or comb does not snag. You dont want to hurt them. Work your way all over their body; dont forget their stomach and the insides of their legs as well as their ears and face.
Once finished, your pet will be smelling and looking clean and tidy.
