It's just water, there's no reason not to. Just make sure he's dried really good to prevent moist spots for skin infections.

If his skin is itchy, serve him some veggies fried with olive oil and maybe rub a teaspoon of oil on him.

he is alergic to corn and yeast that we know for sure, he is on naturals lamb and rice meal but since we just went to the vet they want me to try that food only to see if he clears up, and is is doing well suprisingly clearing up fast after a week his skin isnt so bad and he has hair stubble coming back his skin is just dry from the alergic reaction why i was asking about the warm water to help rehydrate it and he doesn't mind it i do have to make him get out after a while but he will lay in it as long as its warm and you let him
