Austin Facial Scrub for Dogs

Just like you, your pet deserves a little pampering once in a while, so why not spoil your furry friend with a facial scrub? More effective than a regular shampoo, a dog facial scrub gently cleanses and exfoliates the skin to remove impurities, stains, odors, and dead skin cells, while also hydrating the skin. The Austin dog bathing and grooming professionals of Walk! ATX use only natural products that ensure a tear-free and enjoyable experience for your pup, leaving them feeling pampered, looking bright, and smelling delightful. Call us at (512) 655-9557 to schedule an appointment.

Benefits of a Dog Facial Scrub

Whether your dog is an active pup who loves to dig in the dirt or a more passive friend who is always by your side, their cute little faces need regular scrubbing. All dogs accumulate dirt, food residue, and moisture on their faces during day-to-day activity. Dogs with long ears, wrinkles, skin folds, and thick fur tend to get even dirtier around the face since these areas trap moisture and dirt. Over time, this trapped moisture and dirt begin to smell and can even cause skin irritation, such as redness, itching, and rashes. A professional dog facial scrub is the best way to gently remove dirt, moisture, impurities, and dead skin cells, whilst also hydrating your dog’s face, so they can look, feel, and smell fresh again.

Tear Stains

Many dog owners complain about not being able to wash away tear stains from their dogs’ faces. Tear stains can show up as yellow discoloration around the eyes or hard-to-remove stains in other areas of a dog’s face. Dogs with light-colored fur and those with certain conditions are more susceptible to tear stains. The most common causes of tear stains are:

  • Eye infections
  • Allergies
  • Glaucoma
  • Ingrown eyelashes
  • Shallow eye sockets

If excessive tears are causing distress for your dog, you need to see a veterinarian for advice. However, if you’re just looking to gently cleanse away those pesky tear stains and the damp odor that comes with them, come and visit us at Walk! ATX and we’ll have your dog tear stain-free in no time.

Choosing the Right Product

People often ask if they can use their own facial scrub products on their dogs. The answer is a definite “no.” Most human products are way too harsh for your dog’s skin since theirs is thinner than human skin and has a different PH level. Choosing the right skincare product for your dog is very important to keep their skin healthy and avoid any adverse reactions.

When you start looking for dog skincare products, you will notice that you have plenty of options. You may be surprised to learn, however, that some products that claim to be safe for dogs actually contain many harmful chemicals, preservatives, and artificial fragrances, which can irritate your dog’s eyes and skin, causing tears, itching, and rashes.

Don’t take a risk by experimenting with dog skincare products at home. At Walk! ATX, we use only the finest and most natural dog-specific facial scrub products. When we meet your pup, we will assess their breed and specific skin needs to select only those products that will not cause any adverse reaction. We have products that are suitable for all types of dogs, including those with skin conditions such as redness, itching, rashes, and balding. Our facial scrub service will cleanse, exfoliate, nourish, and hydrate your dog’s skin without causing any tears, skin irritation, or adverse reactions.

Why You Need a Professional Dog Facial Scrub

If you’ve ever done it before, you know that bathing your dog is one thing, but scrubbing their face is another. When you want to thoroughly clean your dog’s face, you need to look for caked-on dirt and food, moisture trapped in wrinkles and skin folds, and tear stains, which are often very difficult to remove. You also need to be extra careful around your dog’s eyes, nose, and mouth areas to avoid adverse reactions and to make sure your pup is not upset by the facial scrub experience.

At Walk! ATX, we have scrubbed and pampered all kinds of dogs with all kinds of personalities. We will take time to get to know your dog and their personality before we begin the facial scrub treatment so that we can make the experience pleasant and enjoyable for everyone.
