Bath Time Woes

Tell Me, Againbath-time-woes-2

          Why We Are Doing This?

bath-time-woesHe was pretty good but there is a limit. Shampoo, Ears, and Nails. Are we done yet? That is what this look shouts to those that have bathed a puppy. 

For once, I didn’t take a bath too. Typically, I am soaked and wetter than the puppy even though I try to avoid that scenario.

The shampoo is a mild puppy shampoo. It was followed by a rinse and towel dry. Then there is the good smelling conditioner that is antibacterial. Of course, none of this lasts all that long. How often should you bathe a puppy? That is an excellent question. Our reply is to say that you should bathe your puppy no oftener than necessary. A good brushing with the Furminator once a month can go a long way towards eliminating hair–even the eyelash length coats shed.

Ears on the flop-eared Weimaraner can be an issue. Some need frequent cleaning and preemptive treatment. After a bath, we use a powder to ensure the ear canals are dry. Moisture and warmth make a fertile environment for bacteria, viruses, and yeast infections.
