How To Choose The Best Shampoo For Your Pet

How To Choose The Best Shampoo For Your Pet - Captain Zack

There are hundreds of pet grooming products to choose from, so choosing the best shampoo for your pet can be a bit difficult. Many products will make certain claims and branding but, most likely, the best one for your pet will very much depend on your dog/cat and his or her specific needs. Just like when trying products for yourself, it might take a process of trial and error for you to find which is the best pet shampoo for yours.

Dog shampoos for general cleansing

If your dog has ‘normal’ hair and skin (they do not have any special requirements), then there are plenty of products out there. Some products are described as shampoo and conditioner and all will help improve your dog’s odour. If your dog has a tendency to get smelly easily, you’ll find a wide array of deodorising dog shampoos on the market that should keep him or her smelling fresher for longer between baths.

Medicated shampoos for dogs

Just like humans, many dogs need more specialist shampoos, for example, if they have dry, itchy skin. If this is the case with your dog, it’s a good idea to get your vet’s advice before buying. Some medicated shampoos can cause an adverse reaction and actually make the problem worse. Also, specialist dog shampoos are not cheap, so you want to make sure you’re not wasting your money.Buy Captain Zack’s Barking Up The Tea Tree Shampoo 200ml for dry skin and itching Here!

Best dog shampoo for allergies

There are two types of dog shampoos for allergies – products that help your dog and products that help humans. Some dogs have skin allergies, which might be the cause of dryness or itchy skin. You’ll find a selection of dog shampoos made to help with this. You can also find dog shampoos that claim to help humans who suffer from pet allergies. If you have a member of the family or a regular visitor who tends to get the sneezes in the company of your dog, this could be a consideration for you. Anti-dander dog shampoos aim to reduce the amount of scratching your dog does, hence reducing the number of allergens released into the environment.

Flea shampoos

As with shampoos for dry skin, most pet shops will offer shampoos specifically designed to deter fleas away from pets. Again, it’s best to talk to your vet or a professional dog groomer before using any of these. Some of the best dog shampoos designed to deter fleas contain a form of insecticide and, while it’s safe to use on most dogs, it could pose a risk to pets with certain health issues.
