    Default Chlorhexidine Solution

    -aspx-jpg

    This tip has been brought to us by Skip from Southern California Bulldog Rescue:


    A hint from those of us that do rescue - We want of offer some helpful information here. For those that don't know this product let it be your 'friend' at home too. Chlorhexidine is inexpensive ( about triple the cost of standard bleach). It kills all sorts of bacteria, fungus and yeasts. BUT unlike bleach - it can be used directly on the skin of your pet to clean sores, rashes, between the toes for cysts, pesky skin folds, clean tail pockets and more.

    BEWARE can not use in the ear, eye or mouth. It's used in many hospitals and vet offices by the 'gallon'. An ounce mixed with 1/2 gallon of water is an effective ratio mix and can be kept for a few days to a week - while still effective.

    A little poured on your standard baby wipes makes your baby wipe a disinfectant wipe in a matter or seconds.

    Read about it and consider it as a tool to help with the care your bulldog at home too.

    This can be gotten for less than $15 a gallon - though shipping is expensive because of the weight, but a gallon will last a long time. Amazon.com is a good place to find it by the gallon.

    You may know this product already and not know it - it's a popular ingredient in many medicated shampoos too.

    My vet agrees with this. In fact, Blue has a terrible yeast infection right now and we're bathing with him a Chlorhexidine Shampoo that she gave us.
    This is much cheaper. Great post.

    Good to know, just ordered duoxo pads 2x30ct but was told they could be cut into smaller pieces, I'll see when I get them, also snout soother, and a safety restraint for my vehicle….. If I would have known this yesterday, i would have ordered the liquid over the pads, but Gr8 info anyway… Thank you for the research and tip…

    Wow that is a great tip. Love the idea of using it to wipe her tail pocket out. Thanks!
