Bathing My Dogs and Cats

It's bath time for the dogs and cats.

My pets are brushed and checked for ticks every day, but they are all very active and need regular bathing as well - every couple weeks for the dogs, and about once a month for my cats. Yesterday was bath time for my pair of calico Persians and my French Bulldogs. I love to do this task myself when I am home, but since I was traveling, Carlos and Enma were happy to do the job. The most important tips to remember - go slowly, use lukewarm water and only mild pet shampoos, and if using a blow dryer, always position it to the lowest heat setting to prevent skin burns and irritations.

Despite some of their expressions, all the pets did very well. Here are some photos, enjoy.
