如何帮狗狗做干洗 | How To Dry Clean A Dog
What to do when puppies step on their stool and urine?
As mentioned in our earlier episode, due to the hot and humid weather in Malaysia, it is advised to shower our dog once a week. Showering too often may remove too much moisture from the skin and cause itchiness. However, a young puppy that is not yet fully toilet trained may often get dirty by accidentally stepping on their own pee and poo. Other than that, they could be messy eaters too. During this unpredictable stage, dry cleaning is the best way to get rid of the mess, instead of showering them every day.
When can I use wet tissues to clean my puppy?
- Cleaning paws - When we wipe their paws after a walk, make sure to lift the paw up slowly from the joint; do not lift too high over the knee joint.
- Cleaning ears – Ideally we should clean our dogs’ ears once a week. If you really do not know how to use ear drops, you can temporarily replace that step with ear wipes.
- Cleaning after they pee and poo – Instead of wiping the areas with a damp cloth, using wet tissues can kill the germs and eliminate odour. It’s a single use and disposable method, making it more hygienic.
- Cleaning for allergic reactions - If your dog has sensitive skin or its belly hair and paw hair haven’t been trimmed or shaved for a long time, they may lick it after grooming because of irritation. Excessive licking due to sensitive reactions or simply a bad habit can also cause redness, swelling and bacterial infections. Sanitizing the affected areas with wet tissues will help to kill the germs and lower the risks of bacterial infection.
When can I use a sanitizing spray?
- Sanitization of contact surfaces like your dog’s toilet, bed, toy, cage, etc.
- Direct spray on the pet’s skin or coat.
