How to Bathe 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:

  1. Brush out pet first to get rid of mats and help calm pet down.
  2. Make sure pet has a stable nonslip surface to stand on and check water temperature.
  3. Protect pets eyes and ears. Trim nails and clean ears prior to bath.
  4. 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).

A helpful recipe for skunked pets:

1 quart 3% Hydrogen Peroxide
1/4 cup Baking Soda
2 tbsp Dish Detergent
