July Hound Breed Maintenance
The July Hound has a short, weatherproof coat that is typically quite easy to manage. Bathing should only occur on an occasional basis as bathing that occurs too frequently may strip the coat of the natural oils that keep it healthy and leave the dog more susceptible to the cold. Their moderate year-round shedding can usually be handled with a weekly grooming session with a slicker brush, wet washcloth, or grooming glove. It is particularly important to check the ears for moisture and debris as dog breeds with long, hanging ears are more likely to develop ear infections than other dog breeds are.
July Hounds often suffer from a range of common canine health problems. Secure pet health insurance today to avoid high veterinary care costs. Wag! Wellness lets pet parents compare insurance plans from leading companies like Figo and Spot. Find the “pawfect” plan for your pet in just a few clicks!
