Nose wrinkle issues

June 8th, 2014 / / categories: injuries, Medication, skin /

They both had a nose problem recently, Aramis had a bacteria growing under his fold , it was wet and smelly.

D’Artagnan had some redness and hair gone due to over licking his nose.

I researched a lot and found this great product on a bulldog forum.

Dog with a nose wrinkle  are prone to bacteria.

I bought Douxo Chlorhexidine 3% PS Pads. It is very easy to use. One pad is way too big to use for only 1 dog , so I cut
it in 4th parts.

Quickly brush with a slicker brush , don’t try to remove tangles.Rinse well.
Shampoo the dog with the shampoo of your choice. I use the maintenance line banana for medium coats.(1:5)
Rinse the shampoo.
Now it’s time to apply conditioner to the coat.
Mix 1 part ph balance, 1 part pek conditioner, 1 part k101.
Add water and mix well.
Pour the mixture to the entire coat in the direction of the hair growth.
Rinse well.
Blow dry with a pet dryer on high level so the tangles open and get away from the skin.
Brush the tangles out then the coat and finish drying as usual.

This pink grapefruit mask is from fruit of the groomer line, it closes the cuticle to protect it during the cleansing step ( shampoo step). Pink grapefruits suits medium coat.
I mix it 1:3 to water , apply it in the direction the hair grows and let it sits for 5 minutes.
This mask cleans areas in the sebaceous zones
where most toxins enter the skin.
