Care and health maintenance

The Jatese usually has a long, silky coat that requires regular grooming to keep it healthy and well groomed. The Jatese's long coat should be brushed regularly to prevent tangles and matting. Daily brushing is often required to keep the coat free of tangles and maintain its appearance. Bathing should be done every few weeks to keep the coat clean and free of debris . Use a mild dog shampoo and be sure to rinse thoroughly to avoid skin irritation. Because of the long coat, it can be helpful to tie or style the Jatese's hair to keep it out of his face and eyes. This can also help reduce tangles.

Keeping the Jatese healthy is of great importance to ensure that he lives a long and happy life. Here are some important aspects to look out for:

  • Veterinary examinations: Regular veterinary exams and vaccinations are important to monitor the Jatese's health and detect potential diseases early.

  • Eye and Ear Care: Check your Jatese's eyes and ears regularly and clean them as needed to prevent infections or other problems.
  • Nutrition: Provide a balanced diet that meets your Jatese's specific nutritional needs. Consult your veterinarian to determine the proper amount and type of food.
