All healthy pets should boast glossy, mat-free coats. However, having a shining and healthy coat which will be jealous by others, need extra care and effort. This enterprises of a few important factors below.

Healthy Diet

Food for coat care involves studying canine nutrition and product labels. Learn how to read pet food product labels and look for healthy additives that develop hair coats. A good diet with at least 21% protein is important, not just the filler (flour, corn or wheat products). No table scraps and human food. Veterinarians are an excellent source of information for dietary advice to improve coat, skin and overall pet health.

Brush Regularly

Coat care basics include regular coat inspections, brushing and combing, bathing with the right product and healthy diet. Your pet has natural oils on her skin, and regular brush spread those oils through the coat and keep it shiny. Brushing also removes loose dirt from your dog's coat, and it feels great to your furry pal. Gently brush the hair down and in the direction of hair growth.

Removing Matts or Tanges

If you do encounter a tangle work from the outside of the tangle towards the inside, holding the hair between the tangle and the dog's body to prevent any pain. A mixture of them hair detangler and water can be sprayed on the matt and gently massaged in to eliminate the tangle. If you do need to remove the mat out of the hair, be very careful cause you might end up hurting your pet if you are not skillful enough. Always use blunt scissors and cut from closest to the skin to away from the skin, with the ends of the scissors pointing away from the dog's body, not towards it.


Choose the shampoo with natural ingredients. As they age, their skin may become more sensitive. Select a mild dog shampoo for your older dog. Shampoos made from coconut or palm oils are the mildest. Although bathing is an essential component in keeping their coat fresh and presentable, it should not be overdone. Most veterinarians suggest bathing a dog no more than once a month. Over bathing can dry skin and lead to hot spots and itching, which can lead to scratching and infection. If a dog is to be bathed more than once a month, an aloe based shampoo and conditioners should be used and foods and supplements with Omega fatty acids should be given to bolster the production of coat oils.

Essential Grooming Tools

Choose the right brush for your breed. Fine-toothed dog combs are used for soft, thin or silky coats whereas medium-toothed combs are used for normal coats. If your dog has very heavy or thick coat, use a wide-toothed comb. Bristle brushes are good for dogs with long coats and grooming mitts are good for short-haired breeds.

Choose the right shampoo:

Just like our shampoo, different skin type may required different treatment shampoo. Whether your dog has normal, oily or dry skin, scally skin or itchy and sensitive skin, all need to be studied properly. Choose an all natural formula for the shampoo. Natural formulas always work best.
