Grooming your dog is crucial for their health and hygiene. Although pet parents can choose to groom their furry friends themselves, it’s also an option to seek professional grooming services. One essential aspect of grooming, especially for dogs with long coats, is trimming their fur every four to six weeks. If left unattended, a heavy amount of fur can cause matting, which can lead to various complications like bacterial infections, hot spots, and scars. Additionally, matting can hinder blood circulation on the skin and cause discomfort and inflammation. During summer, thick coats can also lead to heat stroke, making it even more important to keep your dog’s fur well-trimmed.
Don’t wait until your furry friend experiences any discomfort before giving them a good grooming. Providing your dog with a haircut can be like a breath of fresh air for them, allowing them to shed the weight of their heavy fur. In fact, after rescuing a dog named Lazarus from a barn, the first course of action for animal rescuers was to take him to a groomer. Lazarus had been trapped in the barn for an extended period, which was evident in his thick coat of fur. Unfortunately, his previous owner was unable to care for him due to a severe illness, leaving the poor pup trapped in the barn for six years. Lazarus’ coat had become so thick that it appeared painful and uncomfortable for him to move around. Concerned citizens contacted an animal rescue group to come to his aid, but even after being rescued, Lazarus remained suspicious of people’s intentions as he had grown used to being alone for so long.
Lazarus, the furry and dirty dog, was given a new lease on life after being rescued and brought to groomers by his saviors. The rescuers noticed that his coat weighed more than his actual body, making it hard for him to move. Lazarus was then given a much-needed haircut and bath by Jessica Kincheloe. Despite being initially suspicious, Lazarus eventually trusted Jessica’s process and flaunted his natural charms. Furthermore, he was taken to Big Fluffy Dog Rescue for treatment and therapy to ensure he was fit enough to find a forever home. After undergoing several training sessions, Lazarus finally met his new family and left behind his fears and doubts. The video below shows his remarkable transformation.
