What to do if you think you’ve caught your dog peeing all over your feet?
If so, you can get rid of it, but it will cost you more than you’d expect.
“The water is clear, the water is crystal clear, and you’re getting rid of the water and not taking the water out,” says Mike Soto, a veterinarian at the Animal Health Care Center in San Diego, Calif.
Soto recommends putting your feet in a bucket of clear water, and letting the water flow.
“Put your feet into a bucket full of a clear, fresh, non-porous water,” he says.
If you can’t see the water, you’ll know it’s clear.
“If you see a little bit of water, it’s probably there,” he adds.
Clean water is good for your pet because it kills bacteria and parasites, he says, and it’s a lot easier to keep your pet clean and healthy than when you put it in the water.
Pit bulls, kitties, and ferrets are among the breeds that pee on their feet.
If you catch them, Soto suggests keeping the area covered in fresh, clean water for up to 24 hours.
He also recommends wearing gloves and long pants, and cleaning the area with dish soap and water, Sotos says.
“This is very important, especially for dogs with sensitive feet,” he advises.
As for why dogs pee on the ground, the reason is simple, SOTO says.
Dogs have an instinctive need to get into the dirt to scratch and groom themselves.
However, Surota cautions that you should be careful when doing this, especially if your dog is a pet that is used to sitting on a carpet or a hard surface.
“There are a lot of different types of dog, and they all have different ways of getting up and down,” he explains.
But if your pet is really, really sensitive, Sombra says, “You might need to keep the area cleaned to avoid scratching and scratching.”
So, what’s the best way to clean your dog?
Soto recommends going into the yard to scrub and scrub again after every time you clean your feet.
“It’s good to do it every day,” he cautions.
You can also get rid on your feet by getting a plastic shoehorn.
Soto offers a few different ways to use it, including putting a small plastic baggie in the front of the dog’s crate.
If your dog loves to jump on the end of the shoehorn, put a small, metal box on the bottom of the cage and leave it there.
When you get a new toy, keep it in a separate, dark, secure place, he suggests.
Finally, if your puppy doesn’t like to climb on top of your shoes, put the toy on a flat surface.
Somba says the rubber will absorb shock and prevent your dog from jumping on the toy.
