Amputation Surgery Cleanup with Fresh Dog Waterless Shampoo

If you haven’t gone through a major dog surgery like amputation before, you  might be surprised at the amount of post-surgery stink that clings to your pup when he comes home from the hospital.

Things like bodily fluids and surgical residue might be stuck on your dog’s fur, and they don’t smell nice. And as Whiskey’s Mum just learned, you can’t give your dog a bath for about 10 days until the staples or stitches are removed.

The post-surgery smell can drive you and your pup crazy, but thankfully you can give your dog a “bath” without getting wet!

Fresh Dog Dry Bath Waterless Shampoo to the Post-Op Rescue

When assembling your post-surgery gear, like carpet runners and clean towels, add Fresh Dog Dry Shampoo Powder or Bath Foam Waterless Shampoo to your post-amputation toolkit.

Fresh Dog dry bath shampoos are made in the U.S. They’re free of dyes, parabens, chemical preservatives, synthetic fragrances, surfactants, and detergents.

Their natural formula made with essential oils like lavender is safe enough to use on puppies as young as six weeks old.

Fresh Dog Dry Shampoo Powder Ingredients are: Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda), Zea Mays (Corn Starch), Silica, Essential Oils (Lavender & Rosemary)

Fresh Dog Waterless Bath Foam Shampoo Ingredients are: Purified Water, Coconut Based Surfactants, Glycerine, Ethanol, Hydrolyzed Silk Protein, Chamomile Extract, Sea Kelp Extract, Xanthan Gum, Fragrance, DMDM-Hydantoin, Tetrasodium EDTA, Titanimum Dioxide and Mica, FD&C Blue #1.

 We tried the dry shampoo powder after the company sent us a sample, and found it easy to use on Tripawds Spokespup Wyatt Ray Dawg.

His fur is dark so we had to rub vigorously to blend the powder into his coat, but once we did he looked and smelled nice.

You can even use it on your dog’s bedding or carpeted areas for an extra nice smell around the house.

  1. Hi there! Truman had a horrible time post-op … drowsy and off balance, confused, nauseated, no appetite, diarrhea … and of course maybe a bit stoned from the morphine! He looked like he did not want to exist most days, let alone stand in the shower to clean off! And not making it any better was that his friends were weary of his smell … cone and bandage too! He was a sad puppy. But as soon as he perked up and started feeling better, seems like having a good scrub in the shower with mom was just what the puppy needed! Now he’s older and having trouble with balance, having a good scrub is difficult, cause my pawrents don’t want me to fall and knock out any(more) teeth on the tub. Thanks for the opportunity to enter to win a fantastic (and probably safer) shower!

  2. I give Chloe waterless shampoo baths all the time now! I started looking for alternatives when she had her staples in post amp and then during recovery (when she was still gaining strength in back leg after staples were removed) because I didn’t feel comfortable getting her groomed if she wasn’t 100%.

    I still have a couple bottles of waterless shampoo that need to be used, so you don’t need to enter Chloe into the contest, I just wanted to give my 2 cents about waterless shampoos in general (they make her smell good for days and if you do it properly, get some of that dirt and oils out!!!). For best results I use almost every week between grooming sessions (I like having a clean dog after beach and hiking outings when she gets dirty). Hope who ever gets the shampoo enjoys it!

  3. Nichole that’s so nice of you to share this info. When I met Chloe I remember she felt really clean even though it was a muddy kinda day! Good job.

  4. Hey Mugwhumps and Truman, guess what? You win the bottle! Contact us at jerry-at-tripawds-dot-com and send your snail mail addy so we can ship it to you. Thanks for sharing your story and we hope you like it!
