你的寵物究竟應該幾耐沖一次涼呢?how often should I be washing my dogs ?

網上面搵到嘅大多數建議都建議您每年或按季節先幫寵物沖涼!但在香港,我們的天氣非常潮濕,所以無可能跟其他比較乾旱的地方相提並論。我亦都有問過獸醫嘅意見,獸醫都建議夏天可以每兩週大約 14天至 18天沖一次,冬天每月 30日沖一次。但有樣野你地一定要知道嘅就係一定要使用不刺激皮膚的溫和洗髮水。

 

但係你問我究竟您的寵物幾耐需要沖涼一次呢?

我會問埋你以下問題:

1. 你的狗是住在室內還是室外,你的狗睡在你的床上嗎?

如果你的狗和你一起住在你的房子裡,更重要的是,如果他/她睡在你的床上,那麼你可能會更經常地給你的狗洗澡——這取決於品種,從每週一次到每月一次不等。香港氣候非常潮濕,環境酵母菌和污垢含量很高,因此定期清洗對保持皮膚衛生和健康非常重要——比在涼爽、乾燥的氣候下更重要。鑑於定期清洗,重要的是一定要使用適合您的狗皮膚的優質洗髮水,以防止被毛乾燥。

 

2.狗的品種

不同品種的狗仔它們可以每月沐浴一次。但當然,這也取決於你是哪隻狗,你的獵犬每個週末都在徒步行山嘅,它們肯定需要更多的定期清洗。像 Shitzus 沒有底毛的狗應該每週洗澡一次。如果您不確定,請記住,一隻乾淨的狗係會令自己及你的寵物都過著開心的生活。

 

3. 你家裡有人對狗過敏嗎?

 

如果是這樣,你應該定期梳理和幫你的寵物沖涼。這對於減少寵物脫落的毛髮和皮屑非常重要,從而顯著降低家庭過敏水平。用溫和、滋養、優質的洗毛液對保持狗的皮膚健康和快樂非常重要,這也將減少脫落和刺激。

 

4. 你的狗做什麼活動?

 

你帶你的狗去狗公園嗎?你的狗在沙子或泥土裡玩耍嗎?你的狗在草地上打滾還是去游泳或遠足?聞屁股或流口水怎麼辦?

 

 

如果你有一隻普通的狗,他或她可能會參加上述幾項活動——所有這些活動都需要定期洗澡。

 

5. 你的狗皮膚發癢嗎?

 

狗傾向於通過皮膚吸收過敏原。每週沖涼可以防止發癢,在過敏原有機會滲透皮膚之前將其洗掉。這非常重要,經常洗澡可以顯著減少狗的皮膚過敏和刺激,特別注意非常重要的一點就係一定要使用低過敏性或有機洗毛液。

 

簡單的答案是,大多數狗每兩週左右從就可以幫佢地沖涼家啦,大前提係要了解清楚寵物的皮膚類型、敏感性和生活方式。同埋一定要記住使用適合您寵物的溫和寵物洗毛液和護髮素。

 

定時幫你地寵物洗澡和梳理毛髮有助於去除鬆散的頭髮、鱗屑和碎屑,並改善被毛的光澤。在某些情況下,對於有皮膚病的狗,沖涼和去寵物店美容也是獸醫建議一定要定時做!

 

好似我OSCAR 一樣,我每十二日之後我會自己在家用上我們 mrorganic 2in1 conditioning dog shampoo 同佢沖涼,大約第三十五後就會帶佢比MOON. 姐姐去剪毛大執 ,另外每日我都有養成幫佢梳毛嘅習慣 ,唔係點解你地見親我地,你地永遠講嘅第一句說話就係,OSCAR OSCAR,點解你咁靚仔嘅同埋點解你啲毛咁滑家?係咪??所以大家一齊幫你地嘅寵物定下佢嘅清潔日常啦!

千萬不可以人類的觀念套用在狗狗身上,狗狗的皮膚結構與人類不一樣,人類的皮膚有12-16層,但狗只有2-5層,相對起來更為薄弱,所以若是太頻繁地幫狗狗洗澡會把皮膚表層的保護性油脂洗掉,讓狗狗的皮膚變得脆弱,更容易得皮膚上的疾病。

 

而狗狗洗澡最佳的頻率大約是一週至一個月一次(疾病需求例外),若狗狗本身的體味並不重,且外出次數不多,甚至一個月洗一次都沒問題。

 

但是有三個時間點的狗狗不適合洗澡,否則可能容易著涼,嚴重可能導致感冒或加重病情!

 

1.未滿三個月的幼犬

2.年紀已長的老年犬

3.哺乳期的母狗

 

若遇到上述三種狀況的狗,建議可以擦澡代替,利用純水濕紙巾或濕毛巾幫狗擦拭身體,市面上也有許多種狗用的潔膚水或相關柔性清潔產品等。

Most advice you find on the internet recommends washing your dog just several times per year or by seasons! In Hong Kong with our very humid weather this should be done more frequently. I recommend once every 2 weeks in summer and once per month in winter. You should always use a mild shampoo that won’t irritate the skin.

 

How often your dog needs a bath depends on the following questions:

1. Does your dog live indoors or outdoors, and does your dog sleep in your bed?

If your dog lives in your house with you and more importantly, if he/she sleeps in your bed, then you are probably going to wash your dog more regularly–depending on the breed anywhere from once a week to once a month. Hong Kong has a very humid climate with high levels of environmental yeasts and dirt, so regular washing is important to maintain skin hygiene and health – much more so than in cooler, drier climates. Given the regular washing, it’s important to always use a high-quality shampoo that is suitable for your dog’s skin to prevent coat dryness.

 

 

2. Breed of dog

Harsh-textured coats repel dirt pretty well so they don’t get as dirty as a soft-coated dog. Breeds with harsh-textured coast include Shelties, Collies and Labs and they can be bathed once a month. But of course it also depends on the individual dog you’re your Retriever is out hiking the trails every weekend they will certainly need more regular washing. Dogs without undercoats like Maltese, Yorkies, Afghans and Shitzus should be bathed once a week. If you’re not sure, remember, a clean dog 

 

3. Is anyone in your household allergic to dogs?

 

If so, you should groom & bathe your dog regularly. This is very important to reduce the hair and dander that a pet sheds, significantly reducing the level of household allergies. It is important to bathe in a gentle, nourishing, high quality shampoo to keep the dog’s skin healthy and happy, which will also reduce shedding and irritation.

 

4. What activities does your dog do?

 

Do you take your dog to the dog park? Does your dog play in the sand or dirt? Does your dog roll in the grass or go swimming or hiking? What about sniffing butts or drooling?

 

If you have a normal dog, he or she probably partakes in several of the above activities– all of which warrant regular bathing.

 

5. Does your dog suffer from itchy skin?

 

Unlike humans who absorb most environmental allergens through their noses and mouths, dogs tend to absorb allergens through the skin. Weekly bathing can prevent itchiness, washing allergens away before they get a chance to penetrate the skin. This is very important, and regular bathing can significantly reduce skin allergy and irritation in dogs, especially if we use a medicated or hypoallergenic shampoo.

 

The simple answer is that most dogs benefit from a bath and grooming every 2 weeks or so, depending on their skin type, sensitivities and lifestyle. Remember to always use a gentle pet shampoo and conditioner that is suitable for your pet。
