Matted Dog Coats

Have you ever imagined what it might feel like for you if you had matted knots of hair, similar to those your furbaby experiences?

The groomer/barber is fully booked up and as the days go by the physical discomfort, pain and emotional toll of having matted knots of fur pulling at your skin significantly impacts your overall well-being.

The impact of matting on dogs overall well-being.

A dog with matted fur can experience a range of discomforts that affect both their physical and emotional wellbeing. Physically, the mats can pull on the skin, causing discomfort, pain, and even sores or skin irritation. This discomfort can lead to changes in behavior, such as increased irritability or aggression, as the dog may become defensive due to the discomfort they're experiencing.

Matted fur can also restrict movement, making it difficult for the dog to walk or run comfortably. In severe cases, mats can become tight against the skin, leading to circulation problems and potential nerve damage. Additionally, mats can trap moisture and bacteria close to the skin, increasing the risk of skin infections and hot spots.

Emotionally, the discomfort and physical limitations caused by matted fur can lead to stress and anxiety in dogs. They may become withdrawn, less playful, or even exhibit signs of depression. Furthermore, the inability to groom themselves properly due to mats can affect their self-esteem and overall sense of well-being.
