But generally speaking about every moth.

Just when she needs it. Usually in the hot summer months mostly.

I know that others have answered OPs question, but I am going to answer my personal experience on this for other who may read this thread. Lulu will be 5 years old in January. When I fed her Science Diet for many years of her life because I didn't know any better and thought I was feeding her a wonderful dog food, I had to bathe her once a week because she would smell like a dog so bad within a week. TERRIBLE! Since I have learned better and she has been on ZP she literally has NO ODOR and I truly never think she needs a bath. I now go 6-8 weeks or longer between baths especially in the winter.

Tina you are so right, health shines from inside out. A balanced diet helps
eliminate body odor and bad breath, reduces shedding too! It's important
to take care of the outside(bathe, brush, etc), but it's even more crucial
to take good care of the inside.

Thank you, LS, but what is so heartbreaking is thinking you were taking care of your beloved pet's health--their insides--and finding out you weren't.

You can't blame yourself Tina, you thought you were doing what is best, and
you trusted vet's opinion, which we should be able to do. I believe that a lot
can be reversed with a proper diet, I mean just look at Bella's physical and
mental changes on raw after two years of garbage in her previous home.
Do not dwell on the past Tina, take pride in knowing that you are doing
your absolute best for your dogs today and tomorrow.

Think of it this way...what if you never found out about good nutrition?
Think how lucky your pups are that you constantly try to better their lives
by researching and learning. Not enough people do that for their pets. You
are an excellent dog owner.
