CBD for Pet Skincare: How Often Should You Bathe Your Pet?


CBD for pet skincare is an excellent way to help keep your pet healthy and content. Such products have increased in popularity in recent years – and Pawt4Paws is here to help provide them to our pet parent community.


That being said, when it comes to skincare for your pet, sometimes it begins with your bathing routine. Which begs the question: ‘How Often Should You Bathe Your Pet?’. Allow us to share what we know…


How Often Should You Bathe Your Pet?


The frequency at which you should bathe your pet depends on several factors, such as their breed, type of coat , activity level, and lifestyle. Here are some general guidelines to help you determine how often to bathe your pets:



  • Dogs with oily or smelly coats may need to be bathed once a week.
  • Dogs with normal skin and coat can be bathed every 2-3 months.
  • Over-bathing can strip the natural oils from your dog’s skin and coat, so it’s best to consult with your veterinarian to determine the ideal frequency for your specific dog.



  • Cats are generally fastidious self-groomers and typically do not need regular baths.
  • If your cat has a medical condition, such as skin allergies or excessive oil production, your veterinarian may recommend a bathing schedule.


Other Small Pets

  • Rabbits, guinea pigs, and ferrets generally do not need baths, as they are capable of grooming themselves. However, if your pet has gotten into something dirty or sticky, a bath may be necessary.


It’s important to note that bathing your pets too frequently can strip their skin and coat of natural oils, leading to dryness, itching, and other skin irritations. Always use pet-specific shampoos and avoid getting soap in their eyes, ears, or nose.


If you have any concerns about your pet’s bathing schedule or their skin and coat health, consult with your veterinarian, or feel free to reach out to Pawt4Paws to discuss our CBD skincare products for pets!
