I can’t take full credit for this recommendation: Dogster Community Manager Lori Malm pointed it out at a pet boutique in Mill Valley last month. She and her elderly one-eyed Pekingese, Beasley, are fans of chamomile teabags for ridding pups of eye booger trails (pro tip!) and Earthbath’s Green Tea Leaf Grooming Wipes for other messes that don’t require a full bath.
Now that I am hip to this, Moxie will be getting more post-dog-park wipedowns. As you can see from his smiling face below, he could not be more thrilled.
Sure, you could use a regular wet nap, but then your pup would miss the antioxidant goodness of green tea leaf extract, and all that aloe vera and vitamin E, which moisturize coat and skin. Also, Earthbath is a bit of a nerd when it comes to creating products that won’t hurt the environment (or your pupster) — so its wipes are free of parabens, phosphates, pthalates, and synthetic dyes.
