A Clean Dog Is A Happy Dog

What do I mean by "A Clean Dog Is A Happy Dog" and who the heck is that for. A well pampered pooch that's the envy of its peers and the subject of all the chatter not only looks and feels good, but smells great too. But let's be real, if a trip to the doggie spa is out of the picture, why not bring the spa to you. Today's fashionista pet parents are pulling out all the stops when it comes to their furry family members and why shouldn't you.

With a few simple rules of the road, your pampered pooch will be living in a lap of luxury and enjoying the royal treatment they deserve. As with most things moderation is the key. On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the least favorite, most of us may agree that our little bundle of joy would readily check the number 10 box when it comes to taking a bath. Yes, it's that look when your pet is saying; "not sure why this is happening, don't I already do this myself!!"

So what's the deal with bathing anyway?

  1. We all love our pets and spending this quality time in the process is a great way to strengthen that bond you share with them. 
  2. Of course nothing beats a great smelling pooch when dirt and odors are removed from their coat and skin. 
  3. And something you may not think about, but bathing is a great way to protect yourself and the rest of your family members, just keeping it healthy.

How Often Should I Bathe?

How often do I bathe you may ask?  Note this is not intended for you, but I would say at least twice per day or as needed. While this may work for us humans, no robots here, keep in mind that bathing your pet too often can be detrimental to them as well. It can irritate the skin, damage hair follicles, and increase the risk of bacterial or fungal infections. So how often you may ask? The best bath frequency depends on the reason behind the bath. Keep a few simple factors in mind, including health, breed, coat, and activity level, as well as where these activities are taking place.

No mystery here, dogs who spend the day outside rolling around in things they shouldn’t really are going to need a bath far more often than ones who spend most of their time on the couch, and of course sometimes it's a simple nose test; if your dog comes into a room and you can smell him, more likely than not a bath is needed.

What bathing products do I use? 

First, think skin pH, arguably the most important when it comes to picking out the right bathing product. Our babies have sensitive skin so our choice here may or may not have a skin reaction visible by red, itchy skin and hives. Furthermore, ingestion of pet shampoo can cause symptoms like vomiting, drooling and decreased appetite. Are you worried yet? Let's face it, with so many great veterinarians available, if you’re unsure of which type of shampoo to buy, simply talk to your veterinarian, who knows your pets and their medical history and is in the best position to provide individualized recommendations.
