Lately we have had a few tourists pop in to visit our new Newcastle store to grab some goodies for their four-legged companions. When we asked where their doggo was however, we were sad to hear that they couldn’t come on holidays because it was too hard finding a hotel that would allow them.

Maintaining your dog's pH level is crucial for keeping them healthy. But what is the usual pH of dog skin? Why it's critical? And what you can do to maintain it?
According to its definition, pH is the hydrogen cation concentration (H +) divided by the negative logarithm. Basically speaking, because this may appear confusing, the pH scale indicates how often a mixture, solution, material, etc. is more acidic or more alkaline than neutral deionized water (pH 7).
Dogs' exterior skin has a pH that ranges from 6.5 (for Maltese, for example) to 8.0 (for Labradors), with an average pH of 7.5, whereas human skin has a pH that is between 4.8 and 5.8. It should be noted that the pH varies depending on factors like gender, race, body type, nutrition, hormones, and any current skin diseases.
