Applying shampoos, rinses, ointments or wipes to your pet’s skin can be important when managing your pet’s skin condition. Topical therapies can wash pollens off the coat, moisturize the skin, exfoliate the skin, and decrease itch. Some topical therapies also contain different antiseptics and medications, and can be used to treat bacterial, fungal, and parasitic infections.
The following are general guidelines on how to use topical products. Please wear gloves if the product contains steroids or if you know that you are sensitive to a product.
Bathing Your Pet
Applying A Spray To Your Pet
Using Wipes On Your Pet
Dipping Your Pet
If your pet’s skin appears more red, itchy, or irritated after applying a product to the skin, rinse the product off well with water and notify your pet’s veterinarian.
