Smelly beard

Post by Telsun » 23 May 2012, 20:22

Gracie has a rather fetching beard that we are keen to keep but when she tucks into something a bit smelly (tripe, sardines, etc) she carries the smell with her.

Is there any kind of doggy wipe or something to give her a quick freshen up?

You can get wipes for dogs/cats, but we find a wet flannel is just as good (their own flannel not ours of course :D )

I was never too worried about it, but as Daisy has got older she has developed quite a skin fold in her lower lip which si where saliva gathers, so she gets two streaks of badly stained hair one either side of her mouth. This didn't worry me overly although I would prefer them not to be there, but recently she has had a skin infection there (skin fold pyoderma - it's quite common if you google it!), so the vet has advised us trim the hair there, and shampoo her chin regularly. In between shampoos we are wiping her with malsetic wipes, which are anti-bacterial, so should deal with any potential smells too.

You could try a dry shampoo? I keep Sandys chin trimmed as she does a great impression of a wallowing hippo if she sees a muddy puddle before I do. :lol: Makes it easier to clean her up.

Hi,

Ive just posted a link to a fab dog soap, just seen this thread and thought it would be great kept with a flannel and you could wet the flannel and rub a bit of the soap on it, the tea tree would be great for skin conditions too.
I'll post link below...

Thanks for all the suggestions.

We tried a wet wipe earlier but as prdicted she thought that it looked like a great thing to grab and run around the house with! We're going to try a flannel but I think it maybe a two man job! :)

I'll check the links posted, a dry shampoo does sound like it would do the trick.

Thanks again

Thanks for posting this, as Bud got older he was exactly the same. I shave his muzzle short but you can often still see a slight bit of browny fur that sticks out of his skin fold (where he drools from :oops: :lol: ) so I will definately google that and find out a bit more!! Hopefully with his shaved muzzle it is less likely :) :)

Hope you find what your after Telsun, I tried a few things before opting for shaving but once I got used to his shaved muzzle I fell in love :)
