How to prepare a Professor Pooch’s Epsom Salts for Dogs bath
Prepare for your dog’s bath by gathering supplies before you run the bath water. You will want to have towels on hand, as well as the Professor Pooch’s Epsom Salts for Dogs. You may also want to have shampoo if your dog needs a cleaning and cotton swabs for his or her ears. Begin by brushing your dog to remove any tangles or loose hairs from his or her coat before beginning the soak. If your dog has a skin issue or an injury, clean and trim hair away from the area.
Fill your basin with warm water and add the Professor Pooch’s Epsom Salts for Dogs as indicated on the label. About a cup of salts per gallon of water works well. You might want to dab a little of the salted water on open wounds before immersing your dog in the water, and make sure the water is not too hot for your dog’s comfort.
Place your dog in the bath, and expect a little resistance at first. You may need to reassure your dog as he or she learns to relax in the bath. Use a plastic cup to pour water over your dog’s body, and he or she should start to ease into the experience. Continue to pour the water, and if possible, convince your dog to sit or lie down to relax. Keep your dog in the water for at least ten minutes, and then carefully lift him or her from the bath and towel dry.
You can also use Professor Pooch’s Epsom Salts for Dogs soaks on a smaller scale to soothe sore paws. Make a bowl of salt water and place your dog’s paws in the water to soak for at least 10 minutes. You can also use terry cloths or sponges to make compresses to use on injured skin. Repeat this process two to three times a day for optimal effects.
