Pugs can be prone to skin and eye infections if not kept clean. Besides, they are heavy shedders and require consistent grooming.
Focus on these aspects when grooming your Pug.
A bath a month is a good schedule for your Pugs heavy coat. Baths will control shedding and get rid of loose fur.
Also, Pugs may be prone to bad odor even when they don’t look dirty. This may be caused by sweat or dirt in their skin folds or yeast between their paws, so a bath is a good care routine.
Since your Pug has sensitive skin, use a mild shampoo with a pH of 6.5-7.5. This should also check body odor.
Daily eye and face-folds cleaning
Your Pug’s eyes are large and slightly bulging so they can easily pick dust or get scratched, especially while feeding.
To prevent scratches, place your pet’s feeding bowl on an elevated position.
Also, clean their eyes off the salty fluids and their face folds daily with safe medicated grooming wipes.
Weekly/daily fur brushing
To keep your Pug’s heavy shedding under control, brush your puppy’s coat once every week and daily for an adult Pug.
Even if you do not notice it, plenty of loose furs are trapped in your dog’s coat and needs to be eliminated before ending up on your clothes or couch.
Use a brushing tool that penetrates your Pug’s thick coat for best results.
