Human shampoo is the wrong pH for pets. Use a veterinarian recommended pet shampoo.
Using Human ShampooTitle
Fully rinse away all shampoo to prevent dry, itchy skin. Soap left behind is irritating.
Skipping a Rinse
Frequent bathing strips healthy oils. Bathe only when dirty or on vet's recommendation
Bathing Too Often
Cover ears with cotton balls before bathing. Water in ears can cause infection.
Getting Water in Ears
Trim nails at bath time when soft and clean. Long quicks recede with regular trims.
If your pet hates baths, make it positive with treats and a non-slip surface. Don't force it.
Baths loosen fur for easy removal with a slicker brush. Brush thoroughly while drying.
