The English Bulldog is known for
his unique face, a flat nose and wrinkly face.
These adorable characteristics
gives the Bulldog his unique appareance.
But unfortunately these cute wrinkles
can get moisture in them.
This causes the skin to get irritated
and when not treated it will get infected.
The area will become messy, dark and moist.
Also the infected area will stink,
which can really effect your cuddle time.
To prevent this you have to clean these wrinkles.
How often you clean them depends on the dog.
Some do very well if you clean the wrinkles only once a month.
Some need it on a daily basis.
Here are some tips
on how to clean those wrinkles
and what type of products to use.
• Cotton balls or dry dog wipes
• Ointment for the nose
• Dry towel
Instructions Bulldog Wrinkle Cleaning
Clean your Bulldog’s wrinkles and skin folds
with a cleansing wipe designed for dogs.
Make sure the brand you use is soap and scent-free
Make sure the eye and nose area
is completly clean
When you dry cleaned the wrinkles,
wash it’s nose and apply
a good rub of ointment to keep it soft
Give your Bulldog a monthly shower or bath
using a hypoallergenic, soap-free cleanser.
Pay special attention to those bulldog’s
skin folds and wrinkles,
rub your soapy fingers into the wrinkles,
making sure to avoid the dog’s eyes.
Rinse your dog thoroughly
to make sure that all soap and dirt
are washed out from his wrinkles,
then dry your dog with a towel.
Make sure the skin folds are dry,
trapped moisture can become
a breeding ground for bacteria.
There are a lot of different products
available, from shampoos to creams,
sprays and tissues at the petstores,
if you are unsure which products to use,
consult your veterinarian.
Just like with cleaning tearstains
besides keeping their folds and wrinkles clean
keeping them dry is Key!
I also recommend to give a quick dry cleaning
in the following scenarios:
• when the dog starts rubbing their face
on furniture or surroundings
• after every meal and walk
• especially after trips to the beach
sand can quickly irritate their folds
