Fun Pet Facts:
Did you know that a group of kittens is called a "kindle," while a group of adult cats is called a "clowder"?
The Basenji dog, known for its unique yodel-like bark, is one of the few dog breeds that doesn't bark conventionally.
Dogs have a remarkable sense of time and can anticipate regular events, such as feeding time or your arrival home.
Rabbits have a special form of communication called "tooth purring," where they grind their teeth to express contentment.
Grooming Tips & Tricks:
Customized Grooming Plans: Every pet is unique, and so are their grooming needs. At Southern Divine Kennels, we create personalized grooming plans tailored to your pet's breed, size, and coat type.
The Art of Brushing: Regular brushing not only keeps your pet's coat healthy but also strengthens the bond between you and your furry friend. Use the appropriate brush for your pet's fur type to avoid discomfort.
Pawdicure Perfection: Keep those paw pads soft and healthy by regularly checking for debris and trimming any excess hair. This also prevents slipping on smooth surfaces.
Teeth and Ears TLC: Incorporate regular teeth brushing and ear cleaning into your grooming routine to maintain your pet's overall health.
In-Between Grooming Recommendations:
Hygiene Check: Between grooming appointments, be sure to check your pet's eyes, ears, and teeth for any signs of redness, discharge, or abnormalities.
Healthy Diet: A nutritious diet contributes to a shiny coat and overall well-being. Consult your veterinarian for advice on the best diet for your pet's specific needs.
Exercise and Play: Regular play and exercise keep your pet physically and mentally stimulated, promoting a healthy and happy lifestyle.
Comfortable Living Spaces: Ensure your pet's living areas are clean, cozy, and safe. Regularly wash bedding and toys to maintain a hygienic environment.
