Bathing English Bulldogs
June 10, 2007
How offen do I bathe the puppies? and how about when adults?
Some people bathe puppies as much as once a week.
I’m not a strong believer in frequent bathing. I only
recommend once a month unless they get really dirty.
Bathing often can lead to dry skin and can promote
allergic reactions. The natural oils in a dog’s coat
provide protection from parasites and bacteria.
When you bathe, be sure that you do not get any water
in the ears or nose fold as this can lead to yeast infections.
Moisture is a perfect breeding ground for yeast so you
want to be sure to keep the ears, nose folds, and tail
I recommend brushing your bulldogs at least every few
days. This will help keep the coat healty and clean.
And the bulldogs love it.
If you do bathe them regularly, you could consider adding
an Omega 3 supplement to their diet. Omega 3s (from
flax or salmon oil) provide essential fatty acids and also
help boost your bulldog’s immune system.
