Havana Silk Breed Maintenance
Your Havana Silk loves to be the center of attention, so grooming time should not be an issue with this little poser. A gentle brushing of the coat to prevent tangles or matting is all that is needed. They don't require a regular bath, only if they get to smell a bit too 'doggie'. Ensure you use a gentle conditioning dog shampoo that will protect the silky coat during bathing to maintain the beauty of the coat. You may prefer to blow wave their hair dry in cooler months, just be careful to keep the heat down so you don't burn them. Grooming is a great time to check your dog's body for cuts or lumps. Dogs don't let on when they are hurting unless it is quite painful. Because of their long facial hair, check your Havana Silk's eyes and inner ears for any signs of inflammation or health issues. The inner ear can be gently wiped out with a damp cloth and dried with a towel, but never poke anything in the ear, it could damage their hearing. A manicure to tidy up long nails is all that is needed to finish the session off.
Insuring your Havana Silk puppy as soon as “pawssible” is essential for preventing high vet care costs. Start comparing insurance plans from leading insurers like Healthy Paws and Embrace and save over $270 a year.
