Dogs are indeed man’s best friend, so it is but right to consider their needs and spend time with them like members of our family. You’ll be able to watch a lot of YouTube videos about dog training tutorials but not as many as dog care tips, so we will share with you relevant information about dog care that can help you become a better dog owner. You have to make sure that your dog supplies are enough, so your dog remains healthy and happy all the time. A fine-toothed metal comb and flea comb are important in removing loose dead hair, but remember that is your dog’s coat is heavily tangled, do not use a comb as it will only hurt her. Natural bristle brush is ideal for shorthaired dogs such as Collies and Huskies.
Many pet owners overlook dog foot care, and because dogs spend much time on their feet, they are prone to wounds and punctures, as well as abrasions and scrapes, that is why this is a very important aspect of dog care. Inspect your dog’s feet regularly and if grass sees become embedded in the paw, you can remove them with tweezers. If your dog stepped on something soft and sticky, soften and remove it using a margarine, shortening, or peanut butter, and if your dog stepped in a chewing gum, just apply some ice to make it brittle, making it easier to remove. Even dogs are not really prone to dental cavities, they are prone to gum disease due to tartar buildup leading to gingivitis. Like humans, dogs need to be brushed regularly using a small soft toothbrush or finger brush with a tooth-cleaning solution or toothpaste specially formulated for pets. It is important to check the ears of your dog daily and make sure that the inside is light pink without discharge or bad smell. You can remove foreign bodies with your fingers, and then clean her ear using mineral oil.
To take care of your dog’s eyes, check for any redness, discharge or tearing, and wipe away dried matter from her eyes using moistened cotton ball. Remember that eye issues that don’t resolve within 24 hours should seek a veterinarian. Accustom your dog to the bathing process while she is still young and open to new experiences, but dogs don’t really need frequent bathing only when they are dirty or smelly. There is nothing loving and sweeter than taking care of your dog through proper grooming.
