Jug Breed Maintenance
The Jug is typically an easy animal to groom. They require only occasional bathing and the short, neat coat that is most commonly seen can be maintained simply by brushing the dog once or twice a week with a bristle or slicker brush. Although mats are less likely with short coats, regular brushing helps to remove dead hair and to properly distribute the dog’s natural oils, keeping their coat shiny and supple.
Dogs that inherit the broken or rough coat from the Jack Russell will typically require more brushing, both in the duration and number of sessions. This particular crossbreed may also be more prone to dental disease than other dogs, so regular tooth brushing and dental visits may both improve and extend this hybrid’s life.
Jugs often suffer from patellar luxation and hip 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!
