Hi I have my dog for years now but all I do is weekly cleaning.

What can you guys recommend so I can keep him clean on a daily. I'm noticing that he is licking his paws often. Any daily grooming tips will be appreciated especially on the folds, tail, and paws. By the way his name is Brody. Nice to meet you everone.

I use chlorhexidine wipes to clean folds, chin, etc. a couple times a week. Licking paws can be an indication of an allergy or yeast.

Hi thank you very much for your reply. How do I get rid of this yeast?

If he yeasty paws, you can do dilute povidone iodine to the color of iced tea and do paw soaks for about 5 minutes a day until gone. However, the best thing is to figure out what is the causing the yeast so you can hopefully eliminate it. What are you currently feeding?

The licking is worse last month before I switched to a dog food local in my country. 1 week to switching I noticed that he is more energized and active and have less licking on his paws.

It sounds like it was the food then. If you don’t already do so, you can try adding in a probiotic.

Hi what kind of probiotic is safe to give to them? Is Nestle Yogurt good?

I generally wouldn't recommend a yogurt...not enough strains in it to make a good probiotic. There are some dog specific ones you can get on Amazon or you can add something like raw sauerkraut (the refrigerated kind) as it is fermented.

Believe it or not, I brush his teeth, wipe his eyes, full body wipe down, and put an ointment on his nose daily!
