Blog Mud Baths for Dogs
What is a mud bath? Is it better than a shampoo bath? What are the benefits of a mud bath? Is the bathing process different? These are all common questions that we have encountered when telling our clients about the beauty of a mud bath for their dogs.
A mud bath simply put is the same concept as shampoo but using mud instead. Believe it or not, using mud on your dog has many benefits….more so than using regular shampoo. We are not encouraging you to have your dog roll around outside in the mud when it’s raining. That’s not what we are saying. We are, however, saying that you should start giving your dogs a mud bath when the opportunity arises.
Mud has many benefits for your dog. It can soothe irritations by removing dead irritated skin and can also soothe hot spots. The mud applied to your dog’s coat during the bath can help moisturize the skin and remove dandruff. This is very beneficial in the winter when the air is drier. Mud baths have also been known to help diminish the pain of arthritis and help with flea control.
Different Types of Mud Baths
All mud baths have the same application process. The difference is the purpose of the mud bath. Depending on the reason for the bath will determine which mud application to use. Each bath reaps a different benefit, and each of these treatments is available by request at Very important Paws Spa.
