Yikes, to be honest hun I don't think theres anything you can do now, just watch them like a hawk and hope there is no reaction... give a vet a bell and tell them about it, hopefully if there is any adverse reaction they can tell you what to do.

I personally find they don't need any extra encouragement... Datsun preens for a good hour after getting wet and I don't use anything but warm water. If your baby does not preen much maybe you need more regular spray baths, they are far to vain to stand there dripping wet and not do anything about it
