Let’s know how to groom a Pomchi?
Brush The Coat
This is the main and important part of any dog grooming. You can use a soft-bristle brush to brush the Pomchis coat. Brush their coat in the direction of their hair growth. Maintain gentle strokes as brush bristles can bruise the Pomchis skin. Daily brushing is important to prevent the coat from mats and keep it manageable.
Trim Excess Hair
Trim the excess hairs with blunt-edged scissors. Especially trim the hairs under the tail to keep this area clean. Look at the hairs between the paw pads and overgrown hairs all over the body. This will prevent the dogs from slipping on smooth surfaces.
Clean The Area Under Eyes
Dogs can have spots under their eyes due to any discharge from the eyes. So, clean the area under their eyes to remove any tear stains, which can lead them to bacterial infections. These infections are even responsible for their eye issues.
Brush Their Teeth
Brush your Pomchis teeth to prevent them from teeth and gum issues. Use a small, soft-bristle dog toothbrush to minimize the chances of any mouth injury. Commercial dog toothpastes are also available; you can choose anyone according to your dog’s needs. The tooth issues can lead your Pomchi to bacteria buildup, which can lead them to tooth decay.
Bathe Your Pomchi
Only bathe your Pomchi if it appears visibly dirty. You can use warm water and dog shampoo for bathing your Pomchi. Bathing can remove the natural oils from your dog skin, so it’s important to bathe your Pomchi when necessary.
