Did you know that shampoo residue is a major cause of skin irritation for dogs? Try to go for natural, low lather, low irritant shampoos for healthier dog skin.
Always use a pet shampoo that is specially formulated for the pH of your dog’s skin. Never use “people” shampoos since our skin pH level is much more acidic than our canine friends and could irritate your dog’s skin.
Also, after rinsing, be sure to towel dry your dog, and avoid using any coat finishers or blow dryers, which can also cause skin irritation in a sensitive dog. That’s it for today.
Simple, but something most dog owners overlook.
