Why should I use a hypoallergenic dog shampoo? That is a question we are asked all the time.
Did you know that it is very common for dogs to have negative reactions to regular ingredients in dog shampoos? Regular dog shampoos have soaps and detergents which can lead to allergic reactions which can then cause an itchy rash and make pets skin dry and flaky.
A safer alternative is an hypoallergenic shampoo which uses milder ingredients that are not harsh and are just as effective. Also, some shampoos use fragrances which make you feel your dog is clean and smell fresh; these fragrances can cause all kinds of skin problems. A hypoallergenic shampoo can work just as effectively and avoid all the negative side effect as well as repair and strengthen the skin and hair.
Parabens and alcohol are very harsh on dogs skin. It is better to use a shampoo with aloe vera and /or oatmeal. Hypoallergenic shampoos are fortified with natural ingredients for healthy skin and a soft shiny coat
Please read the labels on the pet shampoo bottles, just as you would do for your own shampoo. If no ingredients are listed, this is a red flag. How do you know what is in there? Avoid shampoos that contain dyes or colorants as well as added fragrances – these are chemicals. Look for a shampoo that contains organic essential oils. Also look for shampoos that use natural vitamins like A D & E.
A few points to remember when bathing your pet:
Use warm water
Be gentle, skin that is inflamed is very sensitive
Rinse thoroughly as soap left on the skin is irritating
Dry your pet thoroughly
And just as importantly-have FUN! Making this an experience your pet looks forward to is essential and it’s a great time to bond with your pet.
If you are still wondering how often do you give a dog a bath, here are a couple of other things to keep in mind:
If your pet has allergies they should be bathed more often
How dirty does your pet get playing outdoors?
Use the “nose test”. If your pet is smelling a bit “ripe”, it’s time for that bath.
