How to wash / groom a dog

  1. It is advisable to use warm water as this will ease body grease removal. We recommend cleaning your pet at least once a week. 
  2. Clean the whole body first then finish with the head to minimize eye irritation. 
  3. Wet the body hair surface, use a normal bar soap for initial cleaning. This removes the body grease and prepares the skin for shampoo action. Rinse off the soap. 
  4. Ask for the best medicinal shampoo next time you visit your vet. 
  5. To allow the shampoo (medicinal/anti-parasitic) to work effectively, apply shampoo evenly over the whole body, soak for 5-10 minutes with the right shampoo 
  6. Rinse off the excess shampoo using warm water. Now clean the head using the same procedure but within 2 minutes. 
  7. Use a dry clean towel to dry your dog. You can as well let your pet dry in the open field
