The Benefits of Grooming Your Pet

Even with the best products, grooming your pet can be a hassle. Some animals hate water, while others simply can’t sit still for the amount of time that is required. However, it’s important to groom your pet on a regular basis. In today’s post, we will discuss the benefits of grooming your pet to give you a better idea of how you can both benefit from this seemingly not-so-enjoyable activity.

The first step to successful grooming is having the right pet combs and brushes in your arsenal. It can be difficult to find not only the right products, but also products that work as they promise. Luckily, The Untangler is here to help! Our line of pet combs and brushes are designed to help detangle fur while also stimulating natural oil production, resulting in a shiny, healthy coat. Traditional combs have sharp teeth that pull and tug when you try to work through tangles. The Untangler, on the other hand, has rotating, stainless-steel teeth that allow you to comb through tough areas in your pet’s coat with ease. If you’re ready to make grooming an enjoyable experience for both you and your pet, shop The Untangler today!

A Clean-Smelling Pet Leads to a Happy Owner

There’s nothing like cuddling up with your pet on the couch to watch your favorite show or movie after a long day at work. That being said, a relaxing night can quickly take a turn when you realize that the awful odor that you are smelling is coming from your pet.


One of the most noticeable benefits of grooming your pet on a regular basis is that they will smell better. We all love to give our pets love and attention, but let’s face it, they like to get dirty and if they go a long time without a bath, they can start to smell. Grooming your pet on a regular basis will help to combat any nasty smells that may occur just from normal everyday activities.

Your Pet will Feel More Comfortable

Have you ever accidentally put your shoes on the wrong feet or tried to put on a shirt that was a couple sizes too small? If you have, it probably felt really uncomfortable until you took off your shoes or put on a different shirt. Now imagine if you had to endure that uncomfortable feeling for days at a time. Pets that aren’t groomed on a regular basis, especially pets with long fur, develop mats and tangles in their fur. To your pet, those mats feel just as uncomfortable as you feel when you’re wearing shoes on the wrong feet.

The good news is that if you groom your pet on a regular basis, he or she won’t ever have to know how that discomfort feels! With that in mind, we’re not saying that you need to give your pet a bath every day. Simply combing through your pet’s fur will be enough to untangle any mats before they get too bad.

Grooming Allows You to Check for Health Concerns

In addition to untangling any problem areas in your pet’s fur, regular grooming allows you the opportunity to check your pet for any health concerns. With the weather getting warmer, there’s a good chance that your dog, or even your cat, will be spending a lot of time outside. One of the biggest health concerns for pets that spend a good amount of time outside is ticks. Ticks can easily hide in the deeper layers of your pet’s fur, and without regular grooming, you may not enough know that they are there. If you comb through your pet’s fur on a regular basis, you will be able to check not only for ticks, but also for other bugs, lumps, and other injuries.

Take Control of Your Pet’s Shedding

If your pet has long fur, then you’re probably not a stranger to shedding. In previous blogs, we’ve given you a few tips and natural remedies to combat your pet’s obnoxious shedding. That being said, the most effective way to take control of excessive shedding is to groom your pet.

When you use a comb or brush to groom your pet, it allows you to reach into the deeper layers of their fur and remove any loose fur that is just waiting to fall on your freshly vacuumed rug. Instead of waiting for the onslaught of dog or cat hair to appear on every surface of your home, you can take control and capture that hair with your mighty comb. Not to mention, it will probably help your pet feel a lot cooler in the warmer temperatures.
