I been asked by people if keeping my Shih Tzu with full coat doesn’t hurts the dog, that’s silly, why would that hurt the dog if it’s something in his nature right? It may if the owner doesn’t groom the dog on the daily basics and the hair gets matted them that will be causing a skin problem for the dog.

I groom Keiko every day and look through his coat to make sure there’s not matted areas, and check his skin health.

Some one also asked me why if Keiko is a boy he it’s wearing bows, that’s because this person doesn’t know anything about long hair Shih Tzu’s and wearing bows isn’t a gentler think is more like a ancient way to identified the breed with long hair.

This is more like an art on a fashion way, Keiko it’s a boy I know that and that’s the reason he always have boy team bows and boy color bows as well.

He has healthy skin and hair and cutting it right now wouldn’t be fair for all my hard work to maintain his long hair, besides he it’s so used to his grooming routing since he was a puppy that cutting the hair will make him feel weird.

After a week on vacation I come back to find out that Keiko got some skin fungus, some type of allergic reaction or ringworm, we don’t know yet is some big red spots with lots of itchy that was making Keiko scratch a lot. Really concern about it I went to the ER and the veterinarian suggested to cut Keiko’s hair to put some antibiotics, I was in shock…imagine how long would take to grow back, I asked for another alternative and she give me some cream to stop the itch while I go to Keiko’s regular vet, so I used and the itching stopped right away and didn’t spread any more. Today we went to Keiko’s vet and she suggested a medical shampoo the will help stop whatever fungus that was and they are also doing some “fungus culture” to find what was it. In ten days from today they will have the result and we hope that is nothing to worry about, at less Keiko is doing well now and I don’t have to cut he’s hair anymore.
