The health and well being of your pet is in the hands of the owner and to avoid unnecessary expense, what would come in handier than a pet cleaning kit?
Get yourself equipped with the basics of pet cleaning tools and avoid the hustle of paying to get your pet a good bath.
Advice from a veterinarian may be advisable for those new pet owners who want their pets spotless all the time.
When buying brushes one should know that there are three types of brushes, the bristle brush, wire-pin brush and the slicker. The slicker bristle is made up of fine wire bristles which are meant for dogs with very dense undercoat.
Wire pin brushes come either with rubber tips or without. These are more appropriate for pets with wooly coats. The other brush is not that popular and can be used for a number of things.
Combs also come in handy and the structure and size of combs depends on the purpose of the comb. Rubber toothed combs are used for messaging the skin while fine toothed combs can be used on those pets with coats.
Medium toothed combs are for general purposes while large toothed combs are used for thicker furs.
Clippers and blades also come in handy and like everything else they come in different brands and sizes. Some clippers are attached with blades which can be removed and replaced.
Scissors are also essential for hairstyling pets and options vary from curved shears to the blunt tipped scissors.
There are two types of grooming tables available in the market. There is the hydraulic table which used a pump to facilitate its movements and the electronic grooming table which is installed with a pump that enables automatic movement upwards and downwards.
Other necessary tools might include nail clippers which also differ in size according to which pet they are used for. Towels and specific shampoos can also be added to the list including a bathing tub in which to bathe your pet. [Pet Grooming Tips]
There are also de-matting tools which come in handy when brushes and combs have failed to do their job. Matt splitters are used for breaking up the matt so that it becomes simpler and easier to brush.
With this basic kit at hand and ready for use, your pet is always clean and will not shed off fur when you cuddle it. One can ensure the total happiness of both the pet and its owner.
