Italian Cavalier Greyhound Breed Maintenance
These hybrids are seasonal shedders and may need to be brushed a few times a week in order to remove loose fur and dirt that may be trapped in the coat. These dogs have very sensitive skin so make sure you use a slicker brush or pin brush to gently pull out loose fur before it tangles. Pay special attention to your hybrid's eyes and clean around that area daily as they can be prone to tear staining. As these dogs have floppy ears, check the ears weekly so that they remain clean and free of debris as infection can develop quite rapidly if they are allowed to get moist or full of dirt. As with all dogs, weekly teeth brushing is essential in order to prevent dental disease. Regular nail trimming every 6 to 12 weeks is a necessity if they are not worn down through physical activity.
