Today’s PetMeds Spotlight is on the frequency of bathing. A common question we get at PetMeds is how often should I bathe my dog, too much can dry their skin, and too little can make the whole house smell.
The answer is simple, the right shampoo makes the frequency of bathing. If your pet has no skin conditions, once a week with an Oatmeal & Aloe Vera Shampoo should be fine. If your pet is utilizing a special shampoo for a specific skin condition, then you should follow your vet’s advice or the manufacturer’s instructions.
Dry skin can lead to other issues like the effectiveness of flea and tick preventative, scratching, etc, but a mild shampoo, something that will take the dirt off from a day of playing can be used without hesitation.
