Hello, I'm new to the forums. I've done a lot of reading and research on the breed especially before we got our pup. However, I'm sad to say that a lot of material I'm reading, especially now, is quite contradictory especially when it comes to routine care (bathing, ear care, eye care, etc). Some places say to wipe folds constantly and some say don't. Some say get deep in the ear canal to clean and some say just what you can physically see. We have a really great vet whom has been helpful. However, I've read so much about being wary of certain vets that may not know enough about the breed and jump to different procedures unnecessarily. So I really wanted to find some personal stories or tips from experienced shar-pei owners. Our girl is going on 13 weeks and she's our first shar-pei. She's been amazing so far. Socialization is going amazing. No health issues to report currently. She is a brushcoat. She's had 2/3 in the series for her shots. She'll be getting her rabies on friday. We plan to spay at 6 months. She has had her eyes tacked twice. The vet said they'd reevaluate if it needs done a third time in which they said it'd be less stress to do so at six months when she's getting spayed. My main interests is how you care for your shar-pei's coat personally? The last thing I want to do is not be taking care of her needs properly and be misinformed. Thank you for the help.
