The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel's silky, beautiful coat may appear high-maintenance. But weekly brushing is typically all it takes to keep it healthy and clean. If mats start to form, more frequent brushing is necessary. The breed's long, drop ears are prone to ear infections. So, check ears regularly for signs of infection. Also, be sure to trim nails frequently to maintain an appropriate length. Nails that get too long can lead to pain or issues with walking or running. The hair between your dog's foot pads should also be trimmed regularly. Small dogs like the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel are particularly susceptible to dental issues due to their little mouths and crowded teeth. So, regular dental care is essential for their overall long-term health. Because of their increased risk of dental disease, this breed may require more frequent professional cleanings beginning at an earlier age.
