Begin brushing your Airedale at a young age to accustom him early. While examining your dog’s ears, look inside the mouth, and hold the paws often, but remember that they’re touchy about the feet. Praise and reward him— give him a positive experience in grooming— to make vet exams easy.
Every week, check the ears for infection (redness/bad odor). To avoid infections, wipe the ears using a cotton ball damped with a pH-balanced ear cleaner. Simply clean the outer part of the ear, and refrain from inserting anything inside.
Check if there are sores, rashes, or infection signs (tenderness, redness, and inflammation on the eyes, nose, feet, or mouth) while grooming your Airedale dog. Healthy eyes must be clear, and free of any discharge or redness. Examining your dog every week will be helpful in eyeing some possible signs of health issues early.
If you notice any signs of infection, parasites, and other skin and hair coat problems, it is a good idea to make an appointment with your vet clinic Newmarket, ON.
