|A few of the Bayer Expert Care skin care products for products for dogs at PetSmart.|
This time, I headed to the Health and Wellness aisle of PetSmart and browsed through the selection of Bayer ExpertCare products. I found several different products for skin care, probiotics for digestive health, eye lubricant, ear cleanser, and more. Bayer ExpertCare provides At Home Pet Care products that are specially formulated for cats and dogs. The products are veterinary formulated, so when your pet needs some extra support you know that these are quality care products you can trust.
I picked up a few of the Bayer ExpertCare products to try out with Shiner, including their Itch Relief Spray for Dogs. I thought it would be good to have around the house for unexpected episodes of itchy skin. Apparently, I was right because Shiner started licking her front legs and paws a few days later.
Her legs are not red or irritated, but I've caught her consistently licking away at them for the past week. I think part of it may be from boredom since I've had to put all of her toys away. After her dental surgery last week, she is not allowed to chew on anything. Plus, she has a patch of fur shaved away from a catheter placement that could be bothering her.
It's not a major concern at this time for me, because there is no redness or obvious irritation. If there were, this would be cause for concern and I'd take her to the vet for a check-up.
When I catch Shiner licking her feet, I use the Bayer ExpertCare Itch Relief Spray on her and try to let it sit for a few minutes undisturbed. The bottle says it reaches maximum effect within 3-5 minutes after initial application. The spray provides temporary relief of itching and flaking. It's made with 1% Pramoxine HCl and Colloidal Oatmeal. I noticed that Bayer ExpertCare makes an Itch Relief Spray that is specially formulated for cats also.
This stuff is great to have on hand if you have a dog or cat with itchy skin. Shiner doesn't care for the spray, but she hates ALL sprays. After I spray her with Bayer ExpertCare Itch Relief Spray, she proceeds to rub her entire body all over everything. It's just the way she is because she is silly sometimes. :) You can see what I mean in the video below.
Next time you are at PetSmart, remember to take a peek down the Health and Wellness aisle and see what kind of Bayer ExpertCare products they have available. You'll likely find something that can make care for your pet easier. You can also find Bayer ExpertCare products at PetSmart online HERE.
We will be talking about a few other Bayer ExpertCare products in the next few months, so be sure to stay tuned for that!
