Mountain Cur Breed Maintenance
The Mountain Cur is relatively easy to groom, except when he
sheds seasonally usually once or twice a year. Brush him using a natural
bristle brush, soft slicker brush or a hound mitt to remove loose or dead hair.
Weekly brushing will keep his coat and skin healthy and shiny. He can
experience dry skin or dandruff if he is bathed excessively. Only bathe him a
few times a year using a mild shampoo and rinsing him well with clean, warm
water. The Mountain Cur is not a hypoallergenic dog. He also does not drool
much because he has tighter fitting lips and not the typical hound jowls. Since
he has ears that hang, be sure to check them weekly and clean as needed to
prevent a foul odor or infection from occurring. If he is very active and running
over rough terrain, he should naturally wear his toenails down, however, you
should check his nails every few weeks to ensure all nails are properly worn,
even the dewclaws.
Mountain Curs often suffer from ear infections and Lyme disease. Secure pet health insurance today to avoid high veterinary care costs. Brought to you by Pet Insurer, Wag!
