Shih Apso Breed Maintenance
The Shih Apso has a low to moderate shedding level. He benefits from daily brushing to keep his coat silky and tangle free. His long coat requires regular grooming to maintain its length. Many owners opt to have his hair trimmed short to prolong needed visits to the groomers. The Shih Apso has very little body odor and typically only needs a bath once per month. His nails will benefit from monthly clipping to keep them short. Once a week, his ears should be wiped clean of any debris. Many owners also opt to brush their dog’s teeth to prevent periodontal disease later in life.
Insuring your Shih Apso 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.
