What is a Pelted Coat

What is a pelted coat?

 

Pelting is when a long or curly coated dog's hair is matted so tightly to their skin, that it restricts air flow and cannot be brushed through (think: one large dreadlock)

Usually pelted with feces & urine

PELTED HAIR CAN LEAD TO:

Yeast infections

Fecal matting

Hematomas

Fleas

Lice

Maggots

Urine burns

Itchy, irritated skin

Cuts, scrapes, sores, and bruises
