    anyone know how to get rid of the smell?

    im looking after my grandads dog tonight and somehow shes found a dirty nappy and rolled in it :shrug::dohh:

    i could see a bit on her side where she rolled in it and the only thing i could think of doing was wiping it with a baby wipe :blush: but she smells!

    please anyone know how to make her smell okay again i have to return her in the morning AND she will be sleeping upstairs tonight.. i dont want a dirty dog around harriet!

    You can use baby shampoo I'd of thought. Dogs generally enjoy baths hun, unlike cats who HATTTE them. Once my cat rolled in fox pee and omfg it STANK. It was a nightmare to bathe him :(

    i might just use one of harriets sponges to scrub her then throw it away after, duno if it will work because shes got rough coated fur haha worth a try i suppose... im dreading what shes gonna be like :haha: hope i dont scare her x

    baby shampoo isnt idea, the PH is different that normal dog shampoo, but i think in your case its kind of an emergency :sick: i dont think it should hurt this once.

    baby shampoo would be your best bet if you dont have any dog shampoo its milder.

    You dont really need to use a sponge, think of it as washing your hair just lather it up and rub it it.

    I bet she will love it!

    Try to stay away from her head and ears, iv found they dont like that and it makes them shake

    If you dont what ot wash it, what about just using moisturiser in the area. Massage it in, then rub it off a bit. then let it dry and give it a rub.
