Making Bath Time Better For Your Dog
Ways to help your dog — and you — feel more comfortable with a wet cleansing
“Dogs love to dig in and roll in the dirt and run through the woods, and though they don’t like to go out in the rain will gladly jump in a swamp or smelly debris,” says veterinary dermatologist Laurie J. Stewart, VMD, DACVD. Maybe that’s why Dr. Stewart, owner of Veterinary Dermatology of New England in Westford, Massachusetts, quips that “bathing in dogs is highly underrated."
