In conjunction with a high-quality diet and plenty of exercise, routine bathing is essential for a healthy dog lifestyle. Bathing your dog not only helps your dog look his or her best, it also helps to wash away environmental toxins and dirt that can be harmful if ingested. While a certain amount of dirt can be helpful to strengthen your dogs immune system, too much can cause other issues. Bathing your dog too frequently with harsh shampoo can cause dry skin and discomfort. Striking a healthy balance between frequency and natural, PH-balanced products (like M&J Dog Essentials!) is key.
It is important to choose grooming products that not only effectively clean your dog but also condition and protect the skin’s barrier functions without stripping away the natural oils that protect the skin and coat. The oil produced by the sebaceous glands in your dogs’ skin has antibacterial qualities that support the immune system by fighting off harmful bacteria. M&J Dog Essentials PH-balanced holistic dog grooming products have been specifically formulated for your pup’s skin to help protect and regulate their natural skin functions.
Establishing a regular bathing and skin care routine for your dog encourages healthy skin and a beautiful coat. While every dog has different grooming needs, we generally recommend a regular grooming session every 2 weeks with our Purely Clean Shampoo & Conditioner. To keep your pup looking (and smelling) their best in-between grooming sessions, try our FreshenUp Coat Tonic.
