Hair and Coat. “Messy hair don’t care,” may work for both genders, but pets need meticulous care. Dogs have different types of hair lengths. Some are short and others are long. Some have hair and some have fur. Some have multiple layers of hair, with both having different requirements. Lack of brushing may lead to matted hair and clotted skin. If the coat is not cared for, ticks and other parasites may gather on the dog’s skin. Collected dirt may cause the dog discomfort and pain, which can lead to scratching and scooting. Antibiotics and skin ointments can help ease residual irritation from washing products. Ensure the canines’ safety by applying necessary shampoos and conditioners if they have overly sensitive skin.
