You wouldn’t dream of bathing once every few months? So why do we let Fido smell like a dirty dog before we give him a bath? Like people, pets need regular baths to stay clean and odor-free.
So how often do you need to bathe your dog? It depends on a number of different factors, such as their coat, lifestyle and health. An active outdoor dog will need to be bathed more frequently than a dog that rarely leaves the house. Dogs with allergies may also benefit from more frequent baths as the bathing washes away contact allergens. And of course, how often you bath your dog is also a personal preference. People who sleep with their pets may want to bath them a few times a week or at least weekly.
No matter how often you bathe your dog, make sure you are using a high-quality pet shampoo that is specifically formulated for your pet. Vetderm Solutions’ Super Hydrating Shampoo was formulated by a veterinarian and dermatologist who wanted to create the perfect shampoo designed with your dog in mind. Enriched with shea butter, aloe, oatmeal and green tea, it is super hydrating and will leave your pet’s fur feeling soft and silky. It contains no harsh chemicals and it is paraben and sulfate-free. And because it was designed for dogs and their sensitive noses, it is also fragrance-free. How many dogs do you know that like smelling like a rose or lavender? Let’s face it, dogs like the smell of cat poop and skunks, but we didn’t think people would appreciate those scents!
