It’s detox bath time.
Your dog is exposed to all kinds of toxins in his environment – both inside and outside. And her body takes those toxins in in a variety of ways. One of those ways? The skin …
… and that’s why a detox bath is always a good idea.
Dr Dee’s Detox Bath
Set your intensions. This bath isn’t just to clean the hair but to open the pores and gently release toxins.
Prepare the rinse. Mix:
- 1/4 cup organic, raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar
- 1 gallon warm filters water.
Double or triple the recipe for large or giant breed dogs.
Set it aside
Use a coconut based shampoo or an organic, neutral shampoo with no scent. In a separate bottle, mix shampoo 5-/50 with water to make it easier to spread out, lather and rinse.
Thoroughly wet your dog and massage in the shampoo.
Remember, this isn’t a car wash! Enjoy the moment with your dog and make sure to lather up everywhere.
Rinse your dog thoroughly.
Gently pour the apple cider vinegar rinse (avoiding eyes, ears and nose), massaging it all over the body and legs. Do NOt rinse it off.
Warning … she may smell a little like salad dressing until she dries.
