Tips When Bathing Your Pet

Why is it that cats and dogs think it's so fun to roll around in mud, dirt, and  everything else that makes us, as pet owners, want to cringe? And then there's  trying to bathe them...forget about it. However, bath time doesn't have to be the  most dreaded time of the week. Try out some of these tips for your finicky furry  friend and bath time can be easier than you expected!

Brush them before you wash them

Oh sweet summertime...filled with sunshine, barbeques, and shedding. Always  brush your pet before you start, this will help remove excess fur and dandruff that  frequently accumulates on their coat. It will help to make bathing them easier and
 quicker. Also, make sure you talk to your vet about using the right kind of shampoo  that won't dry their skin or remove important oils. Typically, a mild soap works  best.

Avoid pouring water over their heads

Cats and dogs are very sensitive to water being poured near their eyes and ears. Ear  infections can easily form if even the smallest amount of water gets inside the ear  canal. If you find it absolutely necessary to pour water on their heads, tilt their  head back and make sure the water and shampoo are flowing away from their ears  and avoiding their eyes.

Timing is everything!

If your cat or dog is especially skittish or hyper around bath time, choosing the right  time can help make a difference. Before bath time, tire them out! Find their favorite  toy and play with them until their exhausted. This will help them be calmer during the high-anxiety time of a bath.

Last, but not least, use treats! Positive rewards during bath time can help give your  pet incentives to stay calm and reinforce their good behavior!
