    You should not be bathing the dog any more often than once every 4 to 6 weeks. So you can bath your dog once every month or two. When you bathe, you are washing away all the natural body oils & constant bathing will cause the skin & coat to dry up, become flaky & itchy & a real problem.

    My dogs haven't had a bath in yrs. When they do get baths they go & roll in the dirt & create a mud dog. It does no good to bath them, they roll in the dirt & it is worse than before they were bathed. I keep 'em brushed to stimulate the skin & catch any under coat I can. Bathing them has not been pleasurable & it only made matters worse.

    Yes, you could have bathed her the day she got the shot. The vaccine was injected & cannot be washed out. Be careful with those baths, you can cause a serious problems if you bath too often. Bath on the first Sunday of every month or what ever day you choose.

    Regardless of vaccination status, you cant bathe your dog for 3 days. Its skin would start to break down and fall off.

    Mmmmmm.....No you should not bathe an dog for 3 days running.

    But you can bathe an adult dog 3 days after its had its vaccination.

    For puppies:

    Veterinarians recommend you should also wait 1-2 weeks after each vaccine to give a bath. Their first bath will put the puppy under a great deal of stress which could lead to a weak immunological response to the vaccinations they receive.

      ^^ Totally agree! I'd not put a puppy under additional stress like this, period. And the same applies to an adult if he hates being bathed.
