Question sent in – what to do when ur shihpoo has balls of fur under his stomach?

what to do when your shih poo has balls of fur under his stomach?

Those furry balls are called “matting” on a Shih Poo or a Shih Tzu.
I prefer to keep the belly shaved. (Or short about 1/4′) All done… furry matting eliminated!
So much nicer for the lil pup so they don’t have to be irritated by the mat anymore.
That goes for under the arm pits and between the crotch too.

Question on AceOfPups.com. Why is my shih tzu always itchy?

Itching and Scratching…..What’s That All About?

You’ve checked for the obvious such as fleas or a rash and found nothing. Right?
Ok, let’s look at some hidden scenarios….dry skin, dandruff, allergies.
Sorry, I can’t diagnose those allergies, that’s for the veterinarian to determine…and they have remedies!!! …Really!

The dry skin and the dandruff truly can be erased with Nutro Ultra Puppy dry dog food!!

I learned that by experience. The coat glistens after 2 weeks on this dog food and there is no more dandruff and no more dry skin and
guess what else….No More Scratching!! The Omega Oils in Nutro Ultra Puppy are the ingredients that make the skin and coat so healthy!

Shall I use that phrase, try it, you’ll like it?
