How often can I bathe my one year old dog in Dawn?
By ashleyrocks from Dallas, TX
I've always given my dogs 2-3 weeks before bathing them again...unless they roll in something of course.
also to help their skin bounce back from losing the natural oils they need and to neutralize the wet dog smell use vinegar and water rinse. i do 2part vinegar 1 part water. remember to give them a slight rinse after using the vinegar.
Because Dawn will strip the natural oils from the skin and coat, I wouldn't use it more often than twice a month. Even then, if you notice alot of flaking or itching (dry skin), cut back to once per month. It IS good for fleas that are on the dog, but there is no residual effect. If you want to use Dawn more ofen than once per month, it might not be a bad idea to get "doggie conditioner" to put on after the bath to keep from overdrying out the skin and coat.
Hello, Please make sure you rinse very well. Dawn is very concentrated. Is there a reason you use dawn and not a shampoo that your Veterinarian advises?
