Default Bath time!!!!(( pic heavy ))

Nadia got herself a bath today!!!! and of course i took many pictures of the experience LOL. and just a quick question. i noticed after i blow dryed her, she has A lot of dandruff??? is this normal with chi's? i think its making her itch because when she wakes up in the morning she itches and like little dandruff comes off and she does it for like 5 minutes but doesnt do it any other time of the day. i dont know. but just a question.... also what kinda shampoo do you guys use on your chis?

She is toooo cute!!!!!

Bailey has some dander, but we have our heater on constantly now, its been so cold! We just bought a humidifier, so hopefully that will help all of us with our dry itchy skin and static shock! LOL

When he doesn't go to the groomer for his bath, I use baby shampoo on him. He smells sooo good after his bath!

thanks ya i was thinking of using baby shampoo on her also. right now I'm using bed head for dogs LOL. but the baby shampoo may be a lot more gentle on her skin. the weather up here has been terrible. it was in the negative then up then down so that is probably why her dander is so bad....

I use a dog shampoo with oatmeal to sooth skin and then I have a leave in conditioner for dogs that I use to help with the dry skin this winter. I don't notice that Babs has dandruff/dry skin, but she's mostly white. Lovee I can really see her dandruff. So when she gets conditioned so does Babs.

my guy just started to get the dander if without washing him...it's from the cold...it dries up their skin and makes them itch like crazy. poor things. i even have the heater on at home and a portable one in my room when it gets really really cold but that doesnt seem to help much...waiting for the warmer weather to appear oh and very cute pics~!! hehe ^^

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww...... .......She is very cute. The look on her face is priceless (LOL).

Dander and itching are signs of dry skin. Try giving her 1,000 mg. fish oil once a day mixed in with her dog food. Cut open a fish oil capsule and squeeze the oil directly into her dog food. Fish oil is rich in Omega 3 fatty acids and prevents and cures dry skin. Plus it will give her a glossy, soft fur coat. You will see positive results in about one month.

Both Bella and Lina get 1,000 mg. fish oil once a day, and they don't have dander or itchy dry skin.

I agree with a drop of fish oil daily but I don't bathe my chis...Every couple of months but I've always been told that you shouldn't because it does dry them out, brushing should help
