Bathing Your Pets
Nobody likes dealing with a smelly dog or a dirty cat. Pet hygiene is just as important for their well being as a nutritious diet.
Dr. Jyl talks with FOX40 about pet bathing
Some Tips On Pet Bathing:
- Brush out pet first to get rid of mats and help calm pet down.
- Make sure pet has a stable nonslip surface to stand on and check water temperature.
- Protect pets eyes and ears. Trim nails and clean ears prior to bath.
- Select a pet approved safe shampoo, and conditioner. Wet coat completely before and after bathing, rinse well, towel off. (can use slightly warmed towels from the dryer).
