Breed-specific guide for the hygiene care of your pet

Caring for the hygiene of our pets is extremely important. Sometimes we wrongly think it only affects their appearance but the experts agree that proper hygiene care is necessary to keep our pets healthy.

Collaborating with a group of experts led by the groomer Susan Armengol, we have created a hygiene care-guide for each breed. Here we present the recommended guidelines for your Yorkshire Terrier.

The "11pets: Pet Care" app has a section dedicated to the hygiene care of your pet. It will help you follow the schedule by reminding you for everything that needs to be done. You can add photos and notes, define the products to be used and many more.
