Bathing Your Dog

Bathing Your Dog

Some people bathe their dogs often to keep them smelling sweet and make it easier to keep the home clean. Other people only bathe their dog periodically or when they’ve gotten into something sticky or smelly. Baths give you a chance to thoroughly examine your dog’s skin and look for unusual lumps and bumps. When you are ready to bathe your dog, work quickly and efficiently. Gather all your bath supplies in one place. Brush your dog before starting to remove excess hair that could mat when wet. Wet your dog thoroughly with lukewarm water. Lather up using dog-safe shampoo. Don’t miss the groin area, under the armpits and between the toes. Don’t get soap in your dog’s eyes, nose or mouth. Rinse completely, again using lukewarm water. Towel dry your dog and brush him again. Keep him inside and warm till he is fully dry. Contact your Jacksonville Beach, FL vet to learn more. Visit their site for additional advice.
