The Care of a Pug
Minimum requirement is brushing once or twice per week. When I groom my Pugs I pay more attention to their nose roll by using a baby wipe twice a day and to combat the moist nose roll that leads to a yeast infections I put desenex in the crevices of the nose roll. IF a yeast infection does occur please take them to the vet. Of course they must have their nails trimmed
Flat face dog specific concerns are as follows :
Should avoid excessive heat. As other flat faced toy breeds, excessive heat quals difficulty in breathing.
Biting power may weaker then long faced breeds, they can easily choke
Other pug dog specific concerns :
They are indoor dogs!! NO questions about IT!
Their eyes are relatively large(or buggy) and eye injuries can occur.
They tend to be piggy eaters, be careful about over-weight .
