July 21, 2006, Newsletter Issue #144: Give a Better Bath

Tip of the Week

You can do a few things to make bath time for your canine a safer and more pleasant experience. Put a non-slip mat in the bathtub to make your dog feel more secure. She may be frightened and fidgety during a bath and the mat will keep her from slipping and sliding.

Always use dog shampoo and conditioner and not a product made for people. Dog shampoos and conditioners are specially formulated for your dog's needs. Pay extra attention to the underside of your dog. Check for pests and irritations.

When bathing your dog, protect her eyes from shampoo by rubbing a cotton ball saturated with mineral oil around the eye area. This prevents shampoo from entering her eyes.
