Hygiene And Care Of French Bulldog Puppies And Adults
Being a French Bulldog owner means that you will need to pay close attention to your pet’s hygiene. Regularly cleaning your dog’s ears and eyes are essential in keeping them healthy, as well as cutting their claws and keeping their bodies clean.
Taking care of a Frenchie’s coat is fairly simple since the hairs are short and straight. Brush your puppy with a special comb to avoid damaging the skin, bristle brushes work best in that case. Follow the combing sessions with praise, puppies love it!
French Bulldogs like to bathe, but they should not be washed before the age of one. Instead, clean your puppy’s coat by gently combing it through. A dull coat could result from malnutrition or signal a disease. Consult with your veterinarian if your puppy’s coat becomes preoccupying.
You should clean your Frenchie’s ears once every two weeks using cotton balls or finger pads. A healthy pup should not have any discharge or unpleasant odor coming from the ear canal. If they have these symptoms, contact your veterinarian immediately.
A French Bulldog puppy’s eyes should be clean and shiny. They need to be wiped daily with a damp cloth. Tearing, redness or pus indicate an infection.
You need to take special care of your Frenchie’s teeth. Do not offer bones for your puppy to gnaw on, as it could result in teeth deterioration. Instead, give your pet toys to reduce teething pain, and make sure that the permanent fangs grow in place of the fallen milk ones (do not allow the teeth to grow in 2 rows). Pay attention to the color of the enamel; if plaque or stone appears, consult a doctor.
