Cici and I have been selected to share with you about all of the wonderful uses of Q-Tips and the new Precision Tips™ – specially designed with pointed tips at both ends making them perfect for precise application, accurate touch-ups, and reaching small spaces..
How many uses can you find for these new pet Q-tips? Using Q-tips to clean your dog can help your pooch feel much better.
I bet Cici would enjoy getting a bath using Q-tips, so small she would hardly notice… 🙂
You can put some calming / healing cream or moisturizer onto doggie noses, ear tips, paws/toes and hard to reach places to sooth away the discomforts of daily life.
You can clean dirt from around their eyes and nose with a Q-tips® Precision Tip™.
Poochie paws can get filled with all sorts of dirt and debris that hide in the crevices so Q-tips are especially handy for cleaning their paws. And when your dog’s paws are painful and cracked from cold weather, Q-tips can help ease the pain when you put lotion on.
- Use Q-tips® cotton swabs for applying healing ointment to cuts and scrapes on pets.
You can even use a Q-tip as a travel toothbrush with dental cream for a doggie teeth cleaning session.
Ear infections are pretty common with dogs. And itchy ears can make dogs cranky and feel under the weather. Never put Q-tips or any other object inside your dog’s ear where it can cause damage. You can use Q-tips to clean the exterior portion of your dog’s ear. Dip the Q-tips in an ear cleaning solution. Q-tips are good for getting into the nooks and crannies of a dog’s outer ear.
Here’s some more tips on how to clean a dog’s ears.
NEVER let your dog or cat eat, chew, and/or swallow a Q-tip.
ok, this is gross but you know how your dog scoots his/her butt across the floor, but you might be able to use a Q-tip to put anti-itchy cream and/or to clean the butt area gently. DO NOT INSERT Q-tip in the dog’s anus.
