    Defaultbaths

    so i am getting crap from the other vet tech students cause i dont bathe jayson. they say that its wrong and gross that he doesnt get them. i explained how a lab coat works and that the shampoo strips the natural oils from his fur but they say they still would give him a bath and that not bathing causes skin issues and rashes.. thoughts?

    Umm... they are wrong, you are right. He's your dog, so you do what you want & ignore their comments.

    BTW, how often do they think someone should bathe a cat? They think bathing is so important, let them bathe a cat that is not declawed and see if they start to see things your way.

    Well, I've listened to the advice given here in this forum....I bathed Todd the first week I had him home. Read here that bathing is not a good idea, and haven't bathed him since. He is just as clean and fresh as ever! I would tell them if it ain't broke, you don't need to fix it.

    You are correct, Kristan. Just nod your head and walk away, you will never win with some people and it is not worth it sometimes.

    I think, when he is fully healed, the only thing I will do is let him into the bathtub and just "rinse" him with water and so that he can play a bit. Is that still a bad idea? (I do not have a pool)

    My vet has never even asked me if/how many baths my two have. Maybe if they smelled...

    ya i have never been asked by a vet how often i bathe jayson either.. he has no odor or stink at all... laika on the other hand that doesnt have a lab coat she has a short single layered coat gets stinky and has to have a bath every week to 2 weeks. let me tell you the water coming off of her is as black as her fur. not easy to see dirt on a black dog lol
