Fo-Tzu Breed Maintenance
To keep your Fo-Tzu’s coat and skin healthy, you need to brush them at least four or five times a week. It is best to use a wire pin brush for regular grooming and a slicker brush for tangles and mats. This breed has a tendency to have skin problems so you have to check with your veterinary care provider about what kind of shampoo and soap to use, if any. However, do not bathe them too often because it dries out their skin. You should also clean their ears once a week with a wet cotton ball and keep watch for ear wax buildup, mites, and redness because Shih-Tzus are susceptible to ear infections. In addition, trim their toenails when needed.
