When we welcome the newest member of our family, our adorable puppy, we always want to give him the best of everything for fear of him getting sick and whether or not he has germs on his skin. We may think our angelic puppies are perfect beings, but they are animals, after all. That means they roll around on the floor and make messes all the time. Be careful with skin problems.
This is where wipes made specifically for dogs are an easy way to deal with minor messes. Studies have proven that your dog doesn't get bathed very often. Especially since puppies are prone to emotional stress
With that in mind, she says when you're shopping, be aware of
Fragrances and dyes. "Some of these artificial additives can irritate dogs' skin, especially puppies, so look for wipes with hypoallergenic formulas that are less abrasive And they're alcohol-free."
Cleaning power. "You need more than just a wipe soaked in water. If you need cleaning and disinfecting power, look for wipes with natural plant-based ingredients to help prevent yeast infections in the ears or skin folds."
Other ingredients. "Aloe vera and vitamin E are excellent additives to help with skin health. They will help prevent dry skin and help repair any irritation."
Purpose. "Some wipes are used for anal glands and some are used for tear stains. Depending on the wipe, you wouldn't want to mix the two!"
One last note: Regular baby wipes are not a safe choice for our pets because the pH of their skin is different than ours.
