Contrary to what many believe, bathing is important for dogs, just like it is for us. A bath helps to keep a dog's coat and skin clean and aids in the healing process when dogs are recovering from skin irritation or damage to their coats.
For pet owners with allergies, regularly bathing their family dog can minimize symptoms by removing dander as well. However you need to choose your shampoo carefully.
- Natural Formulation
If shampoo is free of harsh chemical and synthetic ingredients and is nontoxic, it is therefore less likely to trigger sensitivity reactions in dogs that are allergic to chemicals like sulfates, phthalates and parabens. Natural formulation also makes shampoo gentle to humans' skin, protecting pet owners who suffer from sensitivity to the same types of chemicals.
- Anti-inflammatory Ingredients
Oatmeal is usually a go to ingredient that has been shown to have natural anti-inflammatory benefits. This allows the dog shampoo to help calm redness and swelling and to soothe itching.
- Softening Ingredients
Natural moisturizers help to condition dogs' coats with every use. The conditioning benefits of the shampoo mean that pet owners do not have to use a separate conditioner for dogs to keep their pets' coats feeling silky and looking shiny.
- Repairing and Healing Ingredients
If shampoo is rich in nutrients that are vital to coat and skin health for dogs, it should be great for your four legged friend.
- Deodorizing Ingredients
It is important that after rinsing shampoo leaves behind a light, pleasant scent that lingers on the coat for days. The shampoo can help keep dog odors at bay when used regularly.
