Grooming your small pet can mean anything from brushing its fur, to giving it a bath.
Brushing your small animal will give your pet a shiny healthy coat. And while a shiny coat looks good, it also has health benefits. Regular brushing can reduce shedding and prevent hairballs. The interaction of brushing your pet helps build the bond between you and your pet and helps make your pet more comfortable when being held.
Trimming nails is also important in small animals, as it is in all pets. Trimming your pets nails regularly can prevent nails from snagging and helps to reduce painful scratches. Nail Trimming adds to the overall health of your pet as well. Be sure not to cut the nail too short or bleeding and pain in your animal will occur.
