Grooming an Irish Red and White Setter is a fairly low-maintenance job. Brush them once a week with a soft brush, and use a comb to work out any tangles. Because Irish Red and White Setters have long ears, they may be more susceptible to ear infections. For this reason, check and clean their ears regularly to prevent infections from developing. Maintaining good dental hygiene is essential for the overall long-term health of all dogs. In addition to professional dental cleanings, establish an at-home dental care routine that includes regular teeth brushing.
Irish Red and White Setters are at greater risk of bloat (also known as twisted stomach). To help prevent bloat, break their food up into several meals a day, and use a food bowl designed to slow their rate of eating. Avoid timing meals immediately after any kind of vigorous activity, and wait at least an hour before allowing your dog to run or exercise.
