C. Scrubbing

  1. Dogs are scrubbed with 4x4 gauze sponges using Novalsan solution, followed by alcohol prep (Figure 8).
  2. Begin with Novalsan, starting at the umbilicus, scrubbing in a circular motion out to the limit of the clipped area (Figure 9).
  3. Wipe with alcohol, top to bottom, working from the center out to the clipped area (Figure 10).
