AN EXPANDING ARRAY OF GROOMING PRODUCTS
The grooming sector doesn’t get the most shelf space in pet stores, but it might offer the most variety as it serves the numerous needs of consumers and their pets, which include birds and small animals.
It’s becoming common knowledge that grooming isn’t about keeping a pet clean or looking good, it’s about the health of the pet. There are plenty of products, such as HandsOn Gloves and TrueBlue Ear Wipes, which make grooming a way for pet parents to spend time and bond with their dog, cat, horse or other companion animal.
While grooming professionals require specialized tools for the different types of dog coats as well as those long-haired cat breeds, they aren’t the only ones looking for durable, reliable equipment that can stand up to frequent use for everything from ear care and odor control to de-shedding and nail trimming. Although clippers are essential for groomers, there’s no reason that consumers shouldn’t have access to quality equipment to help maintain their dog’s coat, especially if they’re caring for their dog’s hair and skin health with shampoo and conditioner.
