¿Con Qué Frecuencia Debo Bañar A Mi Perro?

La respuesta simple es: ¿Con qué frecuencia quieres bañar a tu perro? A menos que el perro tenga un problema de la piel, no hay ninguna necesidad de seguir un calendario específico para el baño, excepto para hacer de él un compañero más agradable. Así como la gente, algunos perros apestan más rápido que otros. He conocido perros que nunca han tenido un baño en su vida y que no tienen un olor desagradable, pero a mis propios perros necesito bañarles mensualmente para que huelan bien. Te recomiendo que bañes a un perro de piel normal al menos una vez

Señales Y Síntomas De Que Tu Perro Siente Dolor

Por lo general, cuando una persona siente dolor difícilmente uno no se da cuenta. Nos quejamos de nuestra espalda dolorida. Gritamos si pisamos en algo puntiagudo. Nos cojeamos porque nos duele poner presión sobre una pierna. Nos acostamos en el medio del día en completo silencio y en la oscuridad porque tenemos migraña.

Sin embargo, cosas como cojear o gañir cuando se haga presión sobre un área son señales claras

Fortunately, there are hundreds of brands of pet-friendly grooming products tailored to meet the unique needs and skin conditions of your dog. Dog shampoo can cleanse your dog’s coat of germs and insects, and add nutrients and vitamins to keep it healthy. However, when it comes

How To Bathe Your Dog

If you watch people bathing dogs in movies and TV shows, most of the time it seems like a joyous, fun-filled time for all involved. Unfortunately, bathing your dog in real life isn’t always such a positive experience. Dogs don’t mind being dirty and stinky — in fact, they like it quite a bit — and many aren’t afraid to put up a fight if they think that it will help them get out of bath time. And while watching a favorite actor run after a dog covered in soap suds may seem hilarious, it’s a lot less fun when
