Keep reading to discover some benefits of regular grooming for your Shiba Inu, and also for some tips on making those grooming visits calm, enjoyable experiences for all involved.
Reasons to Take Your Shiba to The Groomer
If you are looking for a pet for your children, you may discover that designer pets are becoming increasingly popular as breeders mix various breeds together to develop interesting offspring. While you may be more familiar with designer dogs, such as the Goldendoodle (Golden Retriever and Poodle mix), there are designer domestic cats being bred as well. One type of bred cat is called a toyger, which is a portmanteau word of toy and tiger, even though a toyger has no more tiger DNA than any other domestic cat.
Ball pythons are non-venomous, easy to handle, and resilient. Proper care may result in a pet ball python living for several decades. If you would like to acquire a pet that won't require you to follow strict care guidelines, visit a pet shop that features ball pythons and habitat and food essentials.
Standard Versus Morph Ball Pythons
There are two distinct categories that ball pythons fall into. Standard pythons are black or brown with a series of lighter splotches along their sides and back.
An annual physical exam for pets is an important part of the preventative care that you should be providing your dog. Your veterinarian will perform a full examination that is designed to catch any potential health concerns early when they are still treatable.
1. Overall Appearance
Most exams begin with a basic check of your pet's overall appearance. This includes examining the condition of your dog's coat, looking for any skin irritations, and verifying that your dog seems alert and in apparent good health.
Some veterinary care you can plan for — like vaccines and dental cleanings. Other veterinary care you can't plan for — like an emergency surgery to remove the sock your dog swallowed. When you do find your pet in need of emergency vet care, it's important that you're able to remain calm, collected, and rational so that you can act in the best interest of your pet. It's a lot easier to stay calm when you know what to do.
I loved animals when I was growing up, and my first pet was a hamster. I loved waking up in the middle of the night just to watch him run on his wheel! Once I proved to my parents that I could care for him well, they then allowed me to get a dog who I also loved. When I moved out of the house as an adult, I also adopted a cat, a pet rat, and an iguana. I enjoy researching animal care before I adopt new pets and putting what I learn into action. However, one thing I also love is teaching new pet owners how to care for their animals. I decided to create a blog to share my pet care tips with everyone who needs a little extra help learning how to care for their animal companions!
