i have a femail giant mal. she loves water. when she goes in the pool do i need to rinse her off after with just clean water. will the chlorine effect her eyes or ears. thx in advance
what ear drops do you use?My dog will swim every day in summer, often many times a day. I hardly ever rinse her off, so she obviously isn't sensitive to the chlorine or anything. I'd just go with it and see how she goes. I imagine the non-impact, resistance exercise would be great for a large growing puppy. We race, 2 laps at a time for 20 laps when its too hot outside to run.
The only thing I'd be careful of are her ears, especially if they aren't standing up yet. Any water that splashes in the ear canal can/will cause a ear infection which can be a real bugger to get rid of. I've got some ear drops that dry the ear canal (I use them on me too) which I stick in if we've been splashing round or jumping in.
I honestly can't remember. Swimmers Ear or something like that seems to ring a bell. The bottle had a paper label which got wet and came off ages ago. I get ear infections pretty easily and this seems to work rather good.what ear drops do you use?
