Skin and fur

 Long coats must be brushed regularly to prevent matting. Brush from head to tail, not the other way around. If you are not sure how to care for your animal's coat, ask an experienced dog groomer. Thick or matted hair often leads to skin disease (flea allergy dermatitis; FAD), especially in combination with dampness or dirt.

While some dogs just naturally smell a little ripe, bad odors often are a sign that they are already in the process of unwanted and it is necessary to take into consideration the beginning of treatment.

Always rinse with lukewarm water, if necessary, a small amount of high quality shampoo - shampoo that contains natural active ingredients such as essential oils or base oils in a wide variety and significant percentages (most shampoos contain cleaning detergents and some extracts only).

Quality shampoo should be massaged well and be let contact with the skin from 7 to 10 minutes.

Treatment continuation with conditioner, will undoubtedly improve the results.

The Best Shampoo for Your Dog is Not Your Shampoo.

If a shampoo that is formulated for human skin is used on a dog, the dog's acid mantle will be disrupted, creating an environment where bacteria, parasites, and viruses can run rampant.

Rinse well after treatment.

In most cases of using a quality shampoo you will get the desired results.

In extreme cases visit a vet!

 

Eyes

Eyes should be inspected regularly, at the very least once a year when the animal receives its annual vaccinations by a veterinarian. Many dog breeds eyes are susceptible to enhanced lacrimation. To prevent the secretion from becoming encrusted it should be removed soon using a clean damp cloth.

 

Teeth and gingiva

Teeth should also be inspected regularly. Although dogs rarely get cavities, many dogs have some degree of periodontal disease caused by plaque bacteria. Over time, periodontal disease can lead to erosion of gum tissue and the bones supporting the teeth, causing teeth to loosen and fall out. This can be prevented through correct nutrition.

 

Ears

Also pay attention to the health of the ears: droopy ears and long hair often lead to poor ventilation and make self-cleaning difficult; painful ear infections may result. Plucking, regular inspection and the use of special ear cleansers are necessary in these cases

 

Vitality

One major reason for people to have a dog is their vitality. The companionship of such an animal can make life easier and happier and help compensate for many other shortcomings. Maintaining your dog's vitality and happiness requires that you provide a balanced diet (nutrition) and give your dog sufficient exercise and animation.
