Re: Westie dirty yellow hair

Dear master of Lumi,

It's is true that Westies' white hair somnetimes becomes yellowish. The solution is a blue shampoo. Be sure to check that your dog has no skin irritations before washing with blue shampoo and also be sure to rinse with warm water A LOT after.

Just use this blue dog shampoo now and then; for the regular every 3 weeks time bath use sensitive skin shampoo and always dry your Westie with warm air, not hot.

It's easy to start a Westie into skin problems that can become cronic, be careful.

Just a note to remenber that some Westies have a weathen shade in their undercoat in the back. This is normal and will never become white.

Good luck and good bathing.

Before all, congratulations for the fantastic site!

The hair of a Westie called Lumi is getting a little yellow, in spite of the baths and the scrubing.

Can you advise me a shampoo?

Thank you!
