Thai Ridgeback Breed Maintenance
The Thai Ridgeback has a short coat that is low maintenance. He will require weekly brushing to remove any dead hairs and dirt. A rubber curry brush or a hound mitt can be used to brush him. By brushing him weekly, the oils on his skin will be redistributed and his coat will have a shine to it. He does shed year round, but it is not heavy, fine hairs will float through the air and settle on furniture and clothing. He generally only needs a bath once or twice a year or on an as needed basis when he is dirty. Bathing him too often can cause him to have skin irritation. Trim his nails as needed which is usually every two to three weeks. His ears should be cleaned weekly to prevent infection. A dental routine should also be set up for him including weekly teeth brushing using a canine safe toothpaste.
