My 3 year old hound mix just got his immiticide shots a little over a week ago. Today, he had an accident in his crate (pee and poo). Is it okay to bathe dogs during the "no walk/no exercise" time of the treatment? He's only had one other bath before, and didn't freak out, per se, but definitely did not like the bath (tail between legs the whole time with a "why me" look on his face). I know this may sound like a silly question, but I'm a first time dog mom, and I'm a litte crazy!!

As far as I know it should be fine. The main concern is keeping him quiet. If you can fill a tub with a little warm water and bathe him calmly, he should be fine. Otherwise, try some baby wipes.

For me, the trouble time has always been after the bath. I have never met a dog that doesn't feel the need to sprint around the house like a crazy dog right after being dried off. If you can keep your pup quiet through the whole process, it should be fine.
