Keep Shampoo Out of Your Dog's Eyes

It happens with babies, it happens with us sometimes, and yes, it even can happen to your dog: shampoo just sometimes slips into yours, your baby's, or your dog's eyes, and it's no fun for anyone when that happens. With dogs, giving them a bath is hard enough, and having that extra shampoo in their eyes doesn't help anything, so how can you prevent such an incident? Here are a few ideas to help you out.

The first thing you should try comes before the actual washing process. When you go to the pet store to purchase your dog shampoo, you need to check for the brands that are softer, that contain fewer irritants, and that are safe for your dog's eyes. In this case, prevention is truly the key, and we're talking about prevention in the way that we want to prevent the soap from harming the dog's eyes. It may be harder to keep the shampoo out of the dog's eyes entirely, but if you can succeed in finding a shampoo that promises not to harm the dog's eyes, then you're in good shape. If you can't find anything at your local pet store, ask your vet for brand recommendations and where you can find them.

If you don't have an eye-safe shampoo for your dog, there is another trick you can use to protect your dog's eyes. All you need to do for this solution is to dab a bit of petroleum jelly on the eyebrows and under the eyes. The jelly will repel the water, therefore repelling the shampoo. This is a more risky method because you don't want the jelly to get into your dog's eyes, and you'll also need to rinse the jelly off sometime, so this trick should only be used if necessary. I'd opt for the special shampoo first. It may be more expensive than the petroleum jelly, but it does have a better shot at being the most effective.

So, keeping shampoo out of your dog's eyes definitely isn't impossible, and just takes a bit of researching and hunting for the perfect shampoo (or petroleum jelly if that's your chosen route) for your dog. Good luck and have a great time with your sparkling clean dog!
