    Default Princess Fiona: handle with care!!!

    I may have posted this in the wrong section.

    I am unsure if I am doing good or not enough. So I will explain my every other day routine. Please let me know if this good enough or not at all.

    i try to used a shedding comb when I feek it necessary. Then usually i have princess follow me to a shower were I wet her down and lather her up with the tear free soap I bought from local pet store. I spray her body n butt n underbelly and strategically wet her face and lather up. And rinse her down. I then command her to shake off excess water and wrap her up in a big towel. I continue to try to dry her as much I can and concentrating on her head wrinkle and her tail. And try to use any dry part left on the towel to dry her. She is usally almost compeletly dry i then use a hair blower to blow dry any part of her body I was unable to dry off. After blowing her dry I use q tips to clean her ears. And then clip her claws if necessary.

    I have a few question

    1) am i giving her too many baths?

    2) what do i do about eye care? (ie: cherry eye issues and etc) Nose care? teeth?

    Sorry still learning

    Well the actual bath routine sounds fine. And if she accepts the hairdryer that's wonderful.
    However bathing too frequently can cause issues with dry skin.
    Typically baths are only needed about once a month.
    For some even less. As long as they are eating a food that agrees with them and doesn't cause that "doggy smell" because of allergic reaction to it.

    Well I honestly can’t smell her but my wife nose is more sensitive to her smell then me. I am transitioning her from Purina puppy chow to merrick puppy chicken and peas .. But Silly me instead of slowing changing her diet i did it in one day, it did not sit well with her and her stool became mushy and in consistent. So i have change that route and am slowly doing half and half at the moment and it seems to be helping solidifying her stool back to Tootsie rollish look. My wife does say her smell has gotten better, since the transition. I don’t know if i should get an Allergy test for her or not. My wife is very adamant about not allowing her to pee/poop in the house so I have train her to only do it outside on the grass. I have to figure out something new because recently it rain and poor girl didn’t want to get wet so she didn’t want to go outside on the grass. I went outside with her with an umbrella and stayed with her till she took care of business. I have read that sometimes EB can have chicken allergies so I hope that is not the case with Princess. And i give her lots of bath because she loves to just roll around in the grass/dirt (usually wet from wife watering plants and etc).

    I LOVE THAT PICTURE in yoru Signature

    Food does have a lot to do with a smell on the bully.... try to avoid chicken and grains, they seem to be the biggest issues with allergies and smelly. Try not to bathe more than once a month... losing the natural oils can cause skin issues (dryness).

    Teeth, you can brush, if you can or just get bones and/or antlers these help keep the teeth clean.
    Nose -- anything specific you are referring to?
    Eyes.. any current issues?

    Your baby is adorable . Lots of good advice here. If you have to bath once every two week. Once a month even better in between baths I get bath wipes from the pet store and wipe Fergus down when he gets dirty. I would not use a q tip you could end up too far in the ear canal. I use either a wipe or a cotton ball to clean the inside of the ear taking care not to go in too far. I do put snout soother on his nose every other day. I do wipe his face/ wrinkles with witch hazel pads every other day.

    I don't think I can add anything to this except for the Biobalm I use on Mabel's nose. Her nose is black again. We have seen a big reduction in the bumpies on her nose too. They peel away and leave nice soft, smooth nose tissue.

    Angus is my first dog ever. Every other day, I brush him, use warm water plus baker soda to wipe him, then conditioning. Thought that I cleaned his tail, until one day, there's a bunch of hair fell off from his behind, screaming, ran to see the vet. Then I realize that he has a screw tail, inverted and tight. Our Vet taught me how to use a finger roll up Malacetic wipes to clean his tail pocket, oh, there's a pocket, i didn't know. First few times, it was too tight to get in, now it's much easier. Angus hates the smell of Malacetic wipes, I use the unscented baby wipe, then baby powder to dry it, only use Malacetic wipe occasionally. In summer, instead of wipe, I use oatmeal shampoo to clean his tail, towel plus baby powder to dry it, he enjoys it very much...
