Think of all the things your dog runs through, rolls around in and rubs up against. His immune system has to combat a host of pollutants and chemicals. It is important to keep his first line of defense, his skin and coat, as healthy as possible. Every day, his paws can pick up pesticides, herbicides, ragweed, grass, pollen, mold and dust mites that can cause intense itching.
Keeping your pet clean, plays a major role in safeguarding him from skin diseases and is vital in maintaining his overall health and well-being. Most dogs can benefit from at least a weekly bath and that time provides a great chance to check your dog while he is wet to see if you notice anything out of the ordinary.
