Cleaning your Dogs Ears

Cleaning your pets ears will help prevent infections and odor.

Cleaning your pets ears will help prevent infections and odor.

Cleaning your dog’s ears is also important. Your dog groomer will use a mild cleanser around the entrance of the canal, which will simultaneously clean the ears and reduce any odor. If your dog is prone to ear infections, veterinarians will often prescribe and ear solution which is used to clean the ear canal. As a dog owner, you should check your pet’s ears often to make sure they are not infected. Breeds such as Cocker Spaniels or Basset Hounds with fallen ears often suffer from ear problems because of the lack of air ventilation. Ears that are not kept clean and dry could lead to ear infections and sometimes even deafness at an early age. If you notice an odor or if your dog has very dirty ears, you should see your vet to determine the problem and to get the right medication for your doggie.

A Smile is Worth a Thousand Words…

Brushing your dogs teeth is just as important as brushing your own!

Brushing your dogs teeth is just as important as brushing your own!

Maintaining your dog’s oral health is important. Between visits to your groomer, brush your dog’s teeth. This should be done at least twice a week. Brushing your K9’s teeth will keep his or her breath fresh and will help to avoid gum disease. Your local pet store will have tasty toothpaste flavors like beef, chicken or peanut butter! They will also have unique tooth brushes to aid in your quest to keep that smile bright.

Bathing Between Visits with Your Pet Groomer

bathing

One of your dog groomers biggest jobs is bathing and drying your pet!

After brushing your pet, it is time for a bath! It is a good idea to place a cotton ball inside the dog’s ears prior to bathing. This will help to prevent ear infections and it will keep the ears dry. Most dogs should be bathed every four weeks. Human shampoo should never be used because the pH balance is harmful to your dog’s skin, which can lead to rashes and skin irritations. If you and your dog have very active lifestyles and more frequent bathing is necessary, be sure to use a very mild shampoo that is chemical free with a natural base such as Earth Bath. Don’t forget to use a conditioner on your dog’s fur! Be sure to thoroughly wash the shampoo and conditioner from your dog’s body. Residue from the products can dry out your furry friend’s skin and can cause irritation.  After the bath, you need to dry your pet. Air drying your pet is best, especially if you have a long haired dog as wet long fur easily creates mats. If you are drying your dog with an at home hair dryer, be aware of how hot the air is on your dog’s skin. If your dog is afraid of the air dryer, try to introduce him or her slowly and towel dry in the meantime. If you are not a professional pet groomer, a towel dry is an option as you can easily dry out or burn your pets skin with an at home hair dryer.

If your busy life style won’t allow time to bath and dry your furry friend, call Roma at aRomatherapy Mobile Pet Grooming to make an appointment for your beloved dog! There are many other important grooming services that can be provided by your local groomer. Please call 310.991.7226 to speak to Roma about the services at aRomatherapy Mobile Pet Grooming.

Brushing

Brushing between visits to your local pet groomer will keep your dogs coat looking great!

Between visits to your groomer, brushing your dog not only removes the loose fur and helps with shedding, but it also stimulates the skin and helps with circulation. If you have a long haired dog, brushing is especially important. Brushing your doggies fur will also help to prevent mats and tangles and protect him or her from having to be shaved or from endless brushing (which your pet will not appreciate!) A groomer will brush your pet, normally before shampooing, and will let you know if they detect any parasites on the skin. Shedding is a natural process for your pet. Many groomers use a Furminator to remove loose fur from your pet. The tool comes in many shapes and sizes so that it will work with any fur type. Your do­­­­­g’s coat will look great once all the old hair is removed during brushing and grooming!

Trimming Your Pups Nails

nail-trimming

Most dog owners prefer not to take a chance when it comes to nail trimming which is 100% understandable. Trimming your dog’s nails can be tricky, especially if your pet has black nails. The inside of a dog’s nail houses a nerve and the nerves are different lengths depending on the dog. An inexperienced executor could accidentally cut the nerve, and the nail will bleed when it happens. If the nail begins to bleed and the nerve has been severed, the dog will feel pain and will fear having his or her nails trimmed. Most dog’s nails should be clipped every four weeks. If you are unclear, unsure, or have never clipped your dog’s nails, be safe and allow your professional groomer or your vet to cut your pet’s nails! If you choose to trim your dog’s nails yourself, remember to always use a clean, sharp nail trimmer. Also, trim the nail at a 45 degree angle and cut slowly. Watch your dog for any signs of pain or bleeding and if you notice any, stop immediately as you are too close to the nerve. Always keep quick stop near to stop any bleeding in case of a mishap.

If you are nervous to trim  your pets nails or if your pet is nervous about having his or her nails clipped, call Roma at aRomatherapy Mobile Pet Grooming to make an appointment for your beloved dog! There are many other important grooming services that can be provided by your local groomer. Please call 310.991.7226 to speak to Roma about the services at aRomatherapy Mobile Pet Grooming.

watts

We had much fun hanging out in Watts this weekend with the good people of Downtown Dog Rescue and the Amanda Foundation. We met, pet and pampered some real sweethearts. And we loved every minute of it! We love you Poodle, Profurio, Shakal, Shelly, Max, Kane, Tootie, Pepper, Precious & Flower and wish you happy […]

The Story of Forty

World meet “Forty” an adorable beautiful Maltese mix male that we had the privilege to meet and groom in Watts’ low cost spay & neuter event two weeks ago.

Image

This is His story: Forty showed up tucked in a small carrier matted from head to toe. It was apparent that he was frightened and lacked basic hygiene and care. After a quick conversation with his owner I realized that he is looking to sell him… I knew I had to get this baby out of this environment and onto a new happy life. The good people of Downtown Dog Rescue agreed to take Forty and find him a home so off we went to the ATM. $40, that’s what it took to get a hold on this little angel! Roma ushered him in the van and the pampering began! Forty had many large matts all over so Roma gave him a good shave down that revealed a sweet pink healthy skin. Next Forty got a few baths and blueberry facial, yummy! Throughout the grooming session Forty was calm & sweet, he let Roma do it all, like he knew exactly what he needed. After it was all done we witnessed Forty in all his glory, beautiful clean and fresh… Forty was ready to conquer the world! Image

And so he did, less than 24 hours after his transformation Forty found his forever loving home!!! We were so happy – elated – at the wonderful news. This sweet baby has gone from rags to riches and it warms our heart to know that he gets the love and affection he deserves. We love you Forty! We would like to thank Lori for agreeing to take Forty in and especially Debra for taking Forty home and placing him with his loving mom. This is what it’s all about.Image
