Coat care tips

A few hints and tips to help keep your dog's coat in good health.

Brushing

Brushing your dog removes skin-irritating dust and dirt from their coat and helps them shed smoothly. Long-haired dogs usually need brushing every day, and it's especially important to remove dead hairs and detangle their coat. If your dog has a short coat, occasional brushing is probably enough unless recommended otherwise by your veterinarian.

Grooming

Different types of dogs have different types of coats. Therefore it's important that you use grooming products and shampoo suitable for your dog's coat type. Your vet or groomer will be able to offer advice.

Skin Health

If your dog's having issues with his coat, it's important to check your dog's skin. Excessive scaling, dryness, red marks, redness around scratches, and of course parasites are your cue to call the vet.
