The dried mud is well removed with a brush. If you bathe it in a warm room, without currents and drying it REALLY Good at the end.

How far I bathe after vaccinating is very bad, because they supposedly lower their defenses. I recommend you not bathe at all. It is a CAPRICHO that can damage it. Dogs are not accustomed nor is it natural for them to bathe. The bathroom makes them very stressed.

How do vaccines affect our dog?

Starting from the basis that vaccines are attenuated virusesWhat is done is to inoculate them in the animal's body so that it produces antibodies naturally against the most common and dangerous diseases.

In the case of adult dogs, the veterinarian usually collects in a single dose 4 vaccines against 4 different diseases. In the case of puppies, as their bodies are still developing and are more delicate, the rabies vaccine is separated for another day, because it is more aggressive for the puppy. This leaves a period of time between the punctures for the animal to recover.

When introducing viruses, the body has to fight them, because they are attenuated so that they do not cause disease but not dead. During that day the animal's body will be a little sick, because it is having to overcome these inoculated viruses.

The discomfort in the animal after vaccination

The degree of involvement of the vaccine in the dog, will depend mostly on the health condition of the individual and how strong he is that day. All animals have more sensitive days than others, in which although we are not affected by a disease we are more susceptible to feeling bad.

The classic daily energy and desire to play that characterizes dogs, make it harder to notice the days when they feel weaker. Only when they are really sick do they show visible apathy. Then the extent of discomfort in the animal will depend on the one hand on how you feel the day of the vaccine itself, and on the other, on what affects the inoculation of the virus.

Normally, the vaccine only makes you feel a little tired, although it is not strange that comes accompanied by fever, as part of the side effects of vaccines in dogs. You may not show your usual appetite and feel a little apathetic. That is why it is best to let him rest so that he recovers quickly.

The bathroom and other activities>

Bathing at home is generally not the favorite activity of any dog, if we add that it comes from being vaccinated and has a slight discomfort. The conclusion is that it is not the best day to bathe. You do not have to get sick, but it is not advisable because if we do not dry it well it will be very more likely to catch a cold. The dryer does not usually like dogs very much, if we use it to dry it well we will be overwhelming it, and stressing it on a day that the only thing you want is to be calm.

It is best to have a relaxed day, without frights. Make 3 or 4 short trips with quiet walks, avoid running and do not play ball, so you do not over strain and recover better. The next day will surely dawn like new and it will be better day to take a bath. Although the best is wait 2 or 3 days for it to be fully recovered.

When the bathroom is essential.

You may encounter a extraordinary situation in which it is essential to bathe him that same day. It may have stained a lot on the way home. In these cases cleaning only the dirty area would be the most advisable, avoiding as much as possible to get wet, and the next day assess whether we bathe completely. There are some tricks to clean a dog without bathing you can use.

The best is bathe the dog before vaccinatingThis way, the veterinarian will go clean and calm and then he will be able to recover without thinking that it was bath day. We hope this article has helped you understand how your dog feels after getting vaccinated, and thus understand that It's not the best day to bathe.

We must show empathy with the animals to know how they feel emotionally, this is sometimes difficult because they are always happy to greet us and are happy at our side. This joy sometimes masks other feelings, such as feeling bad in our absence or having a melancholy day.

When can I bathe my puppy?

If you have a puppy and want to bathe it, you may also have some doubts about it. It is important to highlight that it is not advisable to bathe a puppy before weaningTherefore, if you consider bathing a puppy without vaccines that does not exceed two months of life, we advise you to wait a little before doing so. In case it is essential, it may be interesting to consult with your trusted veterinarian.

On the contrary, if your puppy is already initiated in the vaccination schedule of dogs, it is advised wait between one and two weeks after each vaccine To perform the bath. That is because their immune system is weaker than that of an adult dog and, therefore, they are much more susceptible to disease.

If you have decided to bathe a puppy for the first time do not forget to use a specific shampoo for puppy dogs, dry it thoroughly at the end of the bath and avoid at all times that it can be dismantled. If you must also deworm him, consult with the specialist which products are the most suitable, since a product for adult dogs should not be used in puppies.

I'm not an expert, but I know you can bathe the dog BEFORE you vaccinate him, or 3 days after vaccinating him.

The reason I don't know. In the last rabies vaccine I took my dogs to vaccinate first, when I took them to the aesthetic I told the Lord and he told me that it was not convenient, that he would take them 3 days later, the truth did not ask why, he followed the indication.
