During Spring and Summer my boys are very busy, so I try to give them a bath every couple of weeks.
Baths and flea control are so important during these months. Not only is it good hygiene, but helps with prevention of so many problems, and stacking vet bills.
Not only does it help with the prevention of fleas, it will help prevent hot spots, and skin problems.
Just washing your dog can bring attention to other things that werent there, like lumps, or ticks.
Being able to catch things early is the key to good health.
Keeping them clean prevents irritated skin and needing to go to the vet to stop the itch, along with adding sterroids or other medications.
Oatmeal baths are great for dogs with allergies and the itchies. Or for the more severe itch, talk to your vet about medicated shampoo.
Be proactive before the itch starts!
Something as easy as washing your pets paws once a week during the Spring with just soapy warm water, could prevent constant licking at the paws from allergies.
Ask your veterinarian about home remedies that would suit your pet, guaranteed there is always something you can do.
