Patrice only has a bath when she begins to smell, which is approximately every 2-3 months. We use Johnson’s baby shampoo as our vet recommended it as it is gentle on Patrice’s skin. Using warm water, we make sure that we only gently wash her body from her neck to her hind legs avoiding her eyes and ears. Once she is throughly rinsed, we towel her down, and give her a light blow dry. We make sure to point the hair dryer away from her ears and eyes so they don’t get dried out. We comb out any knots and loose hairs once she is fully dry.
