With a young puppy, you will need to be on alert to check and make sure the anus is free of poop. Poop can form a "cap" over the anus and back up the intestines. Especially when they are learning to eat solid food.Hi everyone,
I guess this has to do with grooming - Just wondering with all that fluff - how do you all clean your furry friends after pottying? Do you wipe them with a baby wipe? Just curious.:huh:
I do the same thing every night before he comes up in our bed since he uses the wee wee pad right before we go to sleep. He's used to me invading his privacy.:blush: With the poop thing, sometimes there are cling-ons but not often. I did learn from someone who used to bathe dogs at a groomers how to hold Tyler backwards in my left arm so his rear is in front, face in back of me and supporting under his chest and private area with my arm and hand. Then I'm able to get his tush to the water and shampoo and clean it well. He lays there perfectly calm and I just end up cleaning the area that's needed without the rest of the dog getting a bath. It's been a lifesaver especially when he had the diarrhea following anesthesia and neuter.Same here. Baby whipes when needed, but I do wipe the both of them with TP after peeing (when I catch them) to make sure they don't drip...drip all over the house.
