    Default Daily Facial Grooming Tips from Sir Remington

    Morning my lovelies!

    Wanted to share Remi and my grooming technique for face cleaning. He loves this the best out of all the stuff we've tried (like duoxo pads) because the smell is minimal.

    You will need:
    • a cloth
    • vetericyn
    • baby powder


    Spray vetericyn on one corner of the cloth and wipe down the facial folds. Use the other corners of the cloth to dry the face. Place a small amount of baby powder on your fingers and run it through the bully's facial folds. This will help keep the face dry all day long. Sometimes we even skip a day before we groom him again. It keeps him dry and smelling great.

    We do this same technique for the tail pocket.

    Remi has minimal facial folds, but this works really well for us. Would love a super wrinkly bully to give it a whirl.

    I have to try this once Blue's cone is off and his eyes feel a bit better (a week or so).
    Only thing is, he's so sensitive to everything. is there a hypo allergenic, fragrance free powder I can use?

    Our biggest issue now is his yeasty face folds (he's super wrinkly).

    Dudley HATES wrinkle wiping no matter what I do...so I'll have to give it a try. He just sees me coming with something in my hand and he runs! Smart bully! Just have to say Remi is one handsome dude...and I always want to hug and squeeze Blueberry when I see him!

    Ollie is the exact same way!! He hates it! It makes it so frustrating and stressful b/c it has to be done, yet he acts like i'm getting ready to hurt him or something!!

    Sheldon stoically sits and lets me wipe him down he doesn't exactly like it, but now his tail pocket is a different matter all together he LOVES having his tail pocket clean he only has a shallow one but he still loves it after I do his tail pocket he walks around shaking his tail as best he can.

    I love the vetericyn because it won't hurt their eyes if you accidentally poke him or spray him. It's mostly salt and water I believe so great for those allergies.
    @Blueberrys Mom, I would try finding something just for babies with sensitive skin. OR at least something without corn starch if you know that is a big issue for your bully. Good luck!!

    I was told yeast feeds off corn starch and it makes it worse... don't know for sure its just what I was told.

    So sayeth the Sheldon Puppy!

    Yes, I've heard the same thing. If there is yeast involved, I recommend you clear it up with duoxo first, and then go back to your regular routine.
