Keep an eye on her after her baths to make sure she's not allergic to the soap if not then you should be able to wash everywhere!!!!!!!! <==== I use a lot of exclamation marks lmao I'm always very hyper ne wayz I use a........cat slicker on porky lol she likes it n I vacuum her with my upholstery attachment!!!!

    For the ears you can use a baby wipe and just get in there and wipe around, be sure to dry it with a cotton ball afterward. Or you can use Witch Hazel on a cotton ball to clean.

    Here's a wonderful article too that should really help you out. Since Coco's a female, please be sure to read the last video on yeast. It's probably one of the best one's I've seen so far. It's a bit long but has so much information in it.

    Ouch, I am having doubts taking her to the Pet smart now :O.. I actually use a 2-1 shampoo/conditioner and no issues at all. So I can use the cotton balls and use with put it inside the ear with no problem right? Sorry Im just a newbie, just trying to make sure I don't harm her ear.. Just swipe the ear and remove the wax correct?

    Actually, I right now don't have unscented wipes. Can I use ACV? I actually like that video. I remember seeing that video last month. It's a great video.

    Just use a tissue then. I do that quite often with Emma and Wilson. I haven't ever tried or heard of using ACV for ears before (that's new to me). But I'm still learning all kinds of things too.

    Yeah that video's really good.

    I have always taken my baby to Petsmart to get groomed. I just heard that they put them in front of a dryer that blows out cold air!? I don't want my little love to get pneumonia, so no, more baths at Petsmart!

    I actually give her a bath once every two weeks. Is that ok or am I over-bathing her?

    I used to bath porky every weekend bcuz she liked to spend her camping weekends rutting in the dirt lol but I honestly don't bath her now unless she absolutely needs it for whatever reason so maybe 1 bath every 2-3 months!!!! I soak all 4 paws in Epsom salt once a week n clean the necessities every day if needed (nose rope, chin, eyes, girly parts lol) the frequency of baths differs from person to person but I'd only do it when you feel she needs it

    I use the witch hazel pads to clean ears and wrinkles and tail pockets .... I get it at walmart. The advantage with witch hazel is that it is a natural astringent so you don't have to worry about drying afterwards.

    As for but wipes ... I use unscented baby wipes for sensitive skin.

    And at bath times it is baby shampoo ... and for their faces I have a blueberry vanilla facial scrub that you can get at Carolina Pet Pantry!
