Grooming a Silky Terrier & Yorkshire Terrier


Grooming a Silky & Yorkshire Terrier

The Only Australian Toy Dog (The Silky Terrier)

 The Silky & Yorkshire Terrier has very fine hair. It is similar to human hair and does not shed like other breeds. For this reason, it is important that the Silky or Yorkshire Terrier be brushed and combed at least twice weekly to keep it tidy and free from snarls and mats.
I suggest you invest in a good quality lanolin - based shampoo, a lanolin - or oil based conditioner, Mink oil, or Almond Oil, Or bay a bottle of Triocil from "PHARMACHEM" Medicated wash for dogs.
This is best for your Silky Terrier or Yorkshire Terrier. (A high foaming wash ensuring clean coats for prevention and treatment of skin disorder in dogs). Flee Control Shampoo from Purina Totalcare is best!
A natural bristle brush, a ball-tipped pin brush, scissors, nail clippers, hand clippers, metal comb and a fine - tooted metal comb. so that is all you need to help to control your dog's coat. Mink Oil or Almond Oil or a Hair Moisturizer Booster from "KIMDEC" ( Protects, Restores and Maintains Moisture Balance). Sprayed and brushed through between washing Hair, helps prevent damage to the coat. The conditioner ("KIMDEC") or mink Oil helps prevent tangles and dry skin. Bath the dog in tepid water, never cold. Pat and squeeze the excess water from the dog's coat with a towel, then blow dry [ if the dog is left to dry and run free the coat will tangle and get slightly wavy].
After the coat is about half dry, use the pin brush to straighten the hair, working from the center part line down and around the legs.
Trimming; A Silky if you like? which means that the ears should be free of long hair, the muzzle be clean of long hair from the eyes to the nose with an inverted V shape between the eyes. The legs and feet from the foot to the first joint of the leg also should be free of long hair. So using scissors and hand clippers, clean hair from this area and between the toes. Trim the nails with nail clippers often; this will stop the foot from spreading and the dog from walking on the back of its pad. Brushing center part; The center part goes from forehead to the tail in a straight line. comb the coat down each side and down each leg. Using the pure-bristle brush, brush the hair down frequently, this will give a nice shine to it; the more you brush, the shinier the coat. And if you can not cope with the clipping yourself, we will be glad to help you, or we will show you how to clip your puppy.
(If you NOT showing your Yorkshire Terrier
( Dog-show) you can trim them the same, as you see below.

      info.gif  Bee aware of Tick's       Anti-Tick-therapy below.  

Tick Poisoning! By Ian Haddon

The tick season this year is still with us, and looks like going through until the end of summer at least.
The Paralysis Tick becomes a problem in rural areas during August, so care must be taken to ensure that your dogs are inspected daily - morning and evening. Regular dipping helps, but seems to be effective only about 4 to 5 days.

Favorite Spots:

The most common areas where ticks will attach to your dog are the head, ears (inside and out), around the mouth and inside the lips, down the neck to the chest and under and around the front legs. Another spot that can be missed is the pads of their feet and between their toes.
All these spots seem to be favorite places for the tick to attach themselves.
It has been found that there are fewer traumas if you first kill the tick while it is still attached by applying kerosene or Hand sanitiser ( antibacterial)  of the tick rinses. With a cotton bud, apply direct onto the tick, wait until the tick is dead and then remove by gripping the tick by the head
with a pair of tweezers.

What to look for:

Ticks are not easily detected in their first stages of attachment, and can be on the dogs for 6 to 8 hours before they can be felt. Even at this stage they may only be half the size of a match-head, but they can still make the dog very ill and in some cases can kill. The tick is dark blue in the early stages, and when it is full appears a blue-grey color.
Symptoms include the dog being unsteady on its feet, unusually drowsy, shaking its head, vomiting or coughing. Once the tick is removed and any of the above symptoms persist, the dog must be attended by your vet immediately. Don't wait to see if the dog improves, because it usually won’t - it will progressively get worse!

The serum injection can make a dog quite ill and can do so for up to 48 hours. The dog may take a week to fully recover. Do not give food or water to the affected dog as it may vomit and choke.
A couple of ice cubes in a bowl can be placed with the dogs for them to lick 12 hours after the serum is given. As treatment tends to make dogs thirsty and in bad cases intravenous fluids may be necessary, even oxygen.
The dog must be kept very quiet, away from noise and kept cool. Try a small amount of food 24 to 36 hours after treatment if the dog has responded, but check with your vet first! If you have a pregnant bitch that has come down with a tick, is likely that she will abort the puppies within a couple of days of receiving the serum. On the bright side, some dogs are immune to the tick and show very little ill-effects from their toxin.
