Tipping Tuesday - Dog Bathing Tips

bathing



Following are answers to Dog Bathing questions we receive at K9 Resort & Spa.

Question: How often should I bathe my dog?
Answer: This depends upon you, your dog and your lifestyle. In general, most dogs do not need a bath more that once every 4 - 6 weeks. However, if you have allergies, your dog has skin problems, or your lifestyle calls for lots of outdoor activities, then you might need to alter that schedule. If you have questions, it's always a good idea to consult with your veterinarian or give us a K9 Resort & Spa a call. One of expert groomers will be happy to discuss your dog's bathing needs.

Question: Can I use human shampoo or baby shampoo on my dog?
Answer: Shampoo is normally formulate to go with the ph balance of the hair and skin. Human skin has a pH of around 5.5 to 5.6. Dog's skin is much more neutral, averaging a pH of between 6.2 and 7.4. Shampoos formulated for humans are much more acidic than those for dogs, and using a human shampoo can upset the balance of a dog's skin. Therefore it is best to only use shampoos formulated for dog use. At K9 Resort & Spa we have a full range of Dog shampoo's conditioners and between bath freshening sprays.

Question: How do I clip my dog's nails without making them bleed?
Answer: Begin by spreading the toes on your dog's feet to inspect for dirt and debris. Use nail clippers designed for dog nails. Human clippers can flatten the nail and cause it to split. Some nails are pink with a white tip - similar to human nails. Trim the white tips back making sure you do not touch the pink area - this is where the quick is and will bleed if cut. For black nails clip off the tip of each nail at a slight angle, just before the point where it begins to curve. With black nails the saying, "less is more" is a good rule to follow. About a week to 10 days after clipping (both black & white nails) the quick will recede and you will be able to trim again getting a bit closer each time.
