Because? Dogs have a layer of natural protection on their skin that isolates them from the outside. By giving it a bath we eliminate this layer that regenerates naturally. However, if we abuse the application of water and shampoos we can cause complications in your skin that result in dry skin. Discover some tips for bathing your dog at home in our article.

If your dog becomes very dirty and very quickly then you can avoid bathing by brushing it more regularly and with the use of baby wipes.

Lack of comfort

Providing our dog with a comfortable clean bed is essential to prevent the appearance of calluses on the elbows. Sometimes it is the dog itself that does not want to lie down in his bed, it is normal for this to happen for example in the summer, for this you can use an old cotton sheet that isolates it minimally from the soil and is not excessively hot.

Allergies and other diseases

The onset of allergies are usually caused by ingestion of a new food, powder, synthetic objects or other causes. Dryness can also be a symptom of disease . If you notice redness or burning, take it to the veterinarian to rule out a possible skin problem.
