Today's Presentation: The Importance of Pet Grooming in Shared Living Environments
Highlights From The Chat
------------------------------Charlotte OteroCommunity Strategist at Maddie's Fundshe/her------------------------------
As a formal groomer, I appreciate what he and his wife have been doing to assist the community SO MUCH. Outside of my work as the ED for Fostering Love Rescues, I have been doing a lot of offsite grooming for our community of farm and guardian dogs. I began doing it out of my PT cruiser, a 5 gal bucket, camping shower accessories, (amazon quality) blow dryer, Bushes for days, and clippers for paw pad cleanups and sanitary trims. All of my clients are double-coated breeds since they're the ones not traveling off properties and more often than not, missing regular vet exams. There is such a huge need for dogs that don't live in homes. The lack of information for the community on matting is crazy. Had a woman who BREEDS Colorado mountain dogs (great Pyrenees type) telling people that the matting is good for protecting against bites in fights with wildlife. As a groomer, I can attest that just isn't the case; mats are painful, irritate the skin, poorly allow for circulation when it's hot and so much more. Kidd you not, I find wounds, punctures, and hotspots on almost every single first visit with a new client, (most times the owner had no clue despite interacting with their pup consistently)! Many pet parents even brush them, but with the wrong brush, it never gets down to the skin to pull out the undercoat!Oral health has been proven to shorten the lives of our pets, ear infections are being missed until they're extremely inflamed, and now we are getting a surge of ticks with sicknesses that neurologically have affected so many in our community because pet parents just don't realize how important skin checks are.
Our sanctuary would love to partake as a partner in educating the community in a fundraiser/classroom setting! Remote Facebook live events have been fruitful for us in the past too! We love what yall are doing! Keep up the amazing work!
