German Anatolian Shepherd Breed Maintenance
Although bathing is only required a few times a year, German Anatolian Shepherds have very thick undercoats and tend to shed heavily year round and require thorough brushing two to four times a week to remove dead hair and to prevent the dense undercoat from tangling and matting. The German Shepherd also sheds more actively on a seasonal basis, a phenomenon called “blowing their coat”. If your German Anatolian Shepherd inherits this quality, they may require more frequent brushing and bathing when the seasons change. This crossbreed may also be somewhat prone to ear infections, so their ears should be cleaned and examined at least once a week.
German Anatolian Shepherds often suffer from elbow dysplasia. Secure pet health insurance today to avoid high veterinary care costs. Our pet insurance tool lets you compare plans from leading companies like Figo and Spot. Find the “pawfect” plan for your pet in just a few clicks!
