Taking care of your four-legged friend is not just a mere aesthetic matter. In fact, the daily practices to which our pet is subjected include dental hygiene, cleaning the coat and many other operations aimed at guaranteeing the health of the cat. Here’s everything you need to know about Dragon Li care .


Dragon Li Care: Brushing and Bathing

How to best take care of the Dragon Li’s cloak?

Although these specimens are short-haired and their coat is characterized by the almost total absence of undercoat, it is necessary to brush them daily.

In this way, it will be possible to avoid the formation of knots and hairballs, as well as promptly identify the presence of parasitic infestations.

Pay attention to the diet of the cat: the brightness and health of the coat depend on the food given to the furry dog. To find out all about the perfect nutrition for the Dragon Li , check out this article.

Wash the cat yes or no?

Is it necessary to wash the Dragon Li, to take care of it properly?

This operation does not always have to be done. The cats, in fact, are very attentive to their personal hygiene, to which they dedicate themselves daily with abundance and scrupulousness.

If the specimens are elderly or veterans of long illnesses, however, it may happen that you have to help them in daily cleaning.

In this case, it is important to choose cleaners specifically formulated for the cat’s skin and to make sure that the water temperature is pleasant and warm.

After having soaped, massaged and rinsed the cat completely, it is essential to make sure to completely dry its fur , to avoid that the four-legged can catch cold and get sick.


Cleaning of eyes, ears and teeth

Not just hair care: here’s how to dedicate ourselves to cleaning the Dragon Li’s eyes, nails and ears.

First of all, it would be advisable to regularly inspect the cat’s ears, to remove any excess amounts of earwax.

Never resort to cotton buds! The risk, in fact, is to damage the cat’s hearing.

In this case, special commercially available sprays can be used.

Alternatively, you can simply use a gauze slightly soaked in lukewarm water, with which to gently pat the feline’s skin .

This same procedure can also be used to remove any secretions and encrustations around the Dragon Li’s eyes.

Your cat’s oral hygiene is also essential. To clean the cat’s teeth we can use both special brushes and toothpastes (avoiding those formulated for human use), and sanitizing creams to be distributed on the animal’s teeth.

Dragon Li nail care

Finally, we just have to answer one last question about Dragon Li care: should we cut the cat’s nails?

The answer is not unambiguous: a lot, in fact, depends on the condition of your pet.

If it is a young and lively specimen, leading an active lifestyle, this operation is not necessary.

The cat, in fact, will take care of sharpening its claws by itself. On the contrary, in the case of elderly and sedentary felines, we may have to cut the nails, if they are excessively long and represent an obstacle for the cat.

How to proceed in this case? First of all, by identifying a suitable nail clipper to tick the claws of the Dragon Li .

After pressing lightly on the cat’s fingertips to get the nail out completely, we will have to eliminate only the small outermost portion, which appears lighter in color than the rest of the claw, not being vascularized.
