  • General Beagle Care

    While your new Beagle pup is fairly self-maintained, there are some tips for properly providing general Beagle care for your new pet. Their short, compact coat is mostly waterproof and their shedding habits are minimal, but some general Beagle care will be needed to help maintain your dog?s health and happiness.

    Your new Beagle pup should be brushed almost daily with a hounds glove or stiff brush to remove any dead hair. They should also be combed with a flea comb to remove any unseen dirt. During its brushing the ears should also be wiped clean to prevent any infections or hearing problems as part of your general Beagle care for your pet.

    A Beagle?s ears are floppy and tend to hold moisture inside the ear canal, which can manifest into infection. Especially if the animal is allowed to roam free in a fenced in yard and small insects and bugs can also find a dark, warm home there. As part of your regular general Beagle care program, keeping the ears clean and the coat brushed can also reduce the possibility of the development of an odor.

    Diet Keeps Dog Fit And Trim

    When you view your Beagle from above, it should have an hourglass appearance with some definition to its waist. Due to their playfulness and gentle personality, overfeeding is a common issue, resulting in the animal becoming overweight. As part of general Beagle care its diet should be restricted to a cup or two of dry, nutritional dog food daily and never table scraps. Minding its weight can help prevent such problems as hip dysplasia and heart trouble.

    Eyelashes can often be a problem for Beagles and general Beagle care should include keeping them trimmed. Since they grow long, they have a chance to curl under and grow into the eye causing irritation, known as distichiasis, possibly requiring surgery to correct.

    There is no real reason to take a Beagle to a salon for bathing or grooming, but when occasionally bathing it at home, no tears dog shampoo should be used and extra care should be taken to complete dry inside their ears. Careless bathing can cause water to become trapped inside the ears, leaving the potential for ear infections. Another general Beagle care tip for preventative care is a diet of lamb and rice dog food, which supplies nutritional needs to keep their immune system healthy to fight infections.

    You will also want to find a good veterinarian, who is familiar with common problems of a Beagle, and understands the health concerns facing the Beagle.
