No mom, I don’t want to take a bath!

Many people think it is necessary to bathe their pets frequently to avoid having the “dog” smell.  Bathing to frequently can actually be irritating to your pets skin.  In turn, it can cause dry skin and irritation, leading to excessive licking and chewing.  Your pet really doesn’t need to be bathed more than once a month, sometimes even less.  I recommend bathing the day before you put topical flea control on.  This would mean you bathe once a month.  Of course if your pet is rolling in the mud, they may need to be at least rinsed off more frequently.  If it seems as if you are bathing more often, consider using a shampoo and conditioner that is very mild.  Try a brand that has aloe and oatmeal.  Any questions email me at
