What are the concerns of not thoroughly rinsing a dog’s coat?
Regular grooming is the key to keeping your dog’s coat looking fresh, clean and healthy. One of the most important steps in grooming is the bath. While you don’t want to bathe your dog too often, you should bathe your dog occasionally with a high-quality shampoo that is tailored towards your dog’s needs. Shampoos come in different varieties for dogs with dry skin, brittle hair, normal hair, fleas and ticks and smelly coats. No matter what kind of shampoo you use, be sure to thoroughly rinse out a dog’s coat so that there is no shampoo left on the coat.
Rinse your dog’s coat with lukewarm water that is clean. As you are rinsing, notice is there are still any shampoo suds on your dog’s back. If there are any shampoo suds visible, you should keep rinsing until you no longer see shampoo suds on your dog’s coat. Leaving shampoo on the coat can lead to skin irritation and much bigger skin issues in the future. It can also make a dog’s coat look dull, and cause your dog uncomfortable itching.
