Coat of Yorkie

A coat is crucially important for the health of any Yorkie and all owners need to pay a lot of attention to it. It is one of the reasons why dogs are rather popular and grooming is an obligatory activity that needs to be performed rather frequently. Grooming is not just needed for a dog show but it also makes your dog feel confident and energetic.

Owners need to take such factors into account as diet, health and age of your pet when there are certain conditions with the coat. Problems with the coat may become symptoms of serious diseases and if you notice something unusual, you need to address a veterinarian as soon as possible. At the same time, there are ways how to make the coat of your Yorkie look healthy. First of all, you need to pay attention to the diet of your Yorkie. It needs to include protein and nutrients.

Besides, while shopping for food for your pet, you need to choose the one which is specifically developed for small dogs and full of fatty acids. The importance of fatty acids in the diet of a Yorkie is high as they help keep the skin oily which is beneficial for recovering hair growth. Besides, to increase the efficiency of the diet, it is better to add some drops of vegetable oil.Coat of Yorkie

Another way to improve the coat of your Yorkie is to bathe your pet on a regular basis. For the proper simulation of the hair follicles, you need to use circular movements while cleaning your pet. After bathing your dog, you need to brush the hair of your dog. Besides, brushing should be provided every other day. Brushing will not only strengthen the hair but will remove all the dead one. If your dog starts experiencing a sort of hair loss, you need to address a licensed veterinarian if the mentioned ways do not work.
