Good afternoon guys !! I was wondering how often can I give my morkie a bath ? He's about 3mths old ?

Except for instances of obvious soiling it is best to limit baths to once a week.  Be sure to use a mild dog shampoo such as aloe and oatmeal and be cautious not to allow excessive chilling.  The more frequent the baths the more likely for dry skin to be a problem.  Using a leave on conditioner and giving an essential fatty acid supplement can help maintain adequate oil in the skin.  3-V caps, DermCaps abd Pet Tabs FA are a couple examples.
