You know them and love them, those squished snout breeds that snore ever so cutely in the evenings? Whether it’s a Frenchie, a Boston Terrier, Bulldog or a Pug, they all have special needs in terms of cleanliness, what with all those wrinkles and folds.
Here are a few tips from our Educator Jen on how to care for your smushed face love bug.
For their Eyes: Keep buildup and dirt out of their folds, especially around the eyesand snout, keep them clean and dry to avoid infection. Try Earthbath Eye Wipes for a gentle, all-natural, alcohol free option.
For their Ears: For these adorable smushies, or any pup, make sure you keep their ears clean to avoid yeast infections. Earthbath Ear Wipes are great for general maintenance, or you can try Animals’ Apawthecary Herbal Ear Wash, which is provides safe, gentle relief from itchy irritants, safe for both dogs and cats.
And the Nose: The key with the nose is to keep it moist and clean. Dogs use their noses like humans use their fingertips…to sense everything around them…so take good care of it. We love Blissful Dog Nose Butter, which you can find at the register. It’s great in summer or winter, when harsh weather can take its course!
