Vizsla Breed Maintenance
Vizslas are very easy to groom; weekly brushing is sufficient. The Vizsla lacks an undercoat and sheds very little. This makes him a hypoallergenic breed. With no undercoat, he may need to wear a coat on winter walks and should not be left outside. Bathing is only necessary if they get dirty or muddy. The pendant ears should be check weekly for wax build-up, mites or redness. The ears should also be cleaned regularly with a veterinarian approved ear wash. His teeth should be brushed at least once per week to help prevent tartar buildup and gingivitis. Nails should be clipped monthly. The Vizsla is a very high energy dog and needs daily exercise. Dogs that are active need a high-grade, nutritious dog food. The first ingredient on the label should be a meat, not a grain or byproduct. Many Vizsla breeders recommend a raw diet and instead of one large meal the Vizsla should be fed twice a day. The Vizsla does better in a house which has a yard to run and play in. They thrive being close to people; therefore, he should not be housed outside.
