After Dog Giving Birth?

My question is about how soon after giving birth can you give your bitch a bath or send them to the groomer?







Answer From the Editors at Dog-Spoiling



after giving birth




We would definitely suggest that you do not take your dog to a groomer for clipping right away. During the first few weeks, you want to keep the mother as stress-free as possible. Remember, it takes up to two weeks for the puppies to even open their eyes so they need to be watched over by the mother as well as need the assurance of having her close by.


You can however give her an enjoyable grooming at home with a very effective grooming tool called the FURminatorafter dog giving birth - furminator. It removes all the dead hair in a gentle manner that dogs seem to enjoy and makes them feel much more comfortable. Plus it leaves their coats looking great.



The next best tool that works in a similar way to this is the Zoom Groom For Dogsafter dog giving birth - zoom groom



When you see that the mother is comfortable spending considerable time away from her puppy responsibilities, then you can consider a trip to the groomer.


In regard to bathing your dog, a full bath can wait for a week or two. The new mother needs to spend some time recovering from the birth and most of her time tending to the pups. But there are products you can use as alternatives to a wet bath that are just about as good.

You can give your dog a pretty thorough and quick all-over clean up with DermaPet Malacetic Wet Wipes/Dry Bathafter dog giving birth - pet wipes


After a completely soothing wipe down, your dog will feel refreshed and smell nice while only being away from her puppies briefly and without the trauma of getting wet at this delicate time.

Another similar clean-up product to consider for this is Petastic Naturals Between Baths Pre-Moistened Towels after dog giving birth - pre-moistened towels.


One last option we can suggest to get your dog clean and smelling good is using a waterless shampoo such as Miracle Foaming Waterless Dog Shampooafter dog giving birth - waterless dog shampoo.

Hope this helps and best of luck with the new puppies. Hope you have great families lined up for them when they are ready for their forever homes.
