Grooming is not just about maintaining your dog’s level of cleanliness, and it is not just about keeping your dog looking good. Grooming is about maintaining both your dog’s physical health as well as his appearance.
To do this you must begin training your dog to endure grooming while he is still a puppy. If you wait too long to begin the grooming sessions, your puppy may not be agreeable to it later on, especially when it comes to ear cleaning and nail clipping.
Another benefit of grooming is that it allows you to check your dog for any abnormalities.

Many of the newer anti-parasite medications aim at preventing a wide variety of parasites while many of the curative treatments only kill one or two types of parasites. The newest preventative, prescription products include Advantage, Frontline, Revolution, Heartgard, Interceptor, Program, Sentinel, and Proheart, though there are many others available.
