How To Find The Perfect Dog Shampoo For Your Pet Companion

Looking for the best dog shampoo for your dog? Dogs can definitely get dirty guarding the fence line, running through the mud, jumping in and out of the swimming holes, chasing squirrels, birds, and bugs, digging holes, and rolling in who knows what left behind in the lawn. That's why it's so important to find the best rated dog shampoo to get them clean.

Whether your toy poodle fits in the sink, your terrier fits in the bathtub, or your lab needs room outside under the hose to lather, rinse, and shake, it is still an "event" to give your pet companion a bath. With so many choices of shampoo for dogs on the market today, all claiming to clean and moisturize, how do you know if you are truly using the best shampoo for your dog?

Well, here are a few tips to help you choose the best dog shampoo for your faithful friend:

First, you want to choose a shampoo that will soothe your pets’ skin and, most importantly, one that rinses clean. You want it to be gentle on the eyes, ears, nose, and tail ends! Remember that any residue that you can’t easily rinse away can cause skin irritation and itching.

Secondly, if water is the first ingredient, you will be looking at a watery mix that will run right off your dog’s back and into the drain. This will not make for a very effective bath. Look for a thick lotion like consistency that you can massage into your dog’s coat to clean and soothe their tender skin.

Scent is equally important when choosing the best dog shampoo. Surely your family won’t enjoy the family pet who smells like a floral air freshener sitting next to them on the couch.

Dr. Jane Bicks, holistic veterinarian and formulator of Life's Abundance dog shampoo, is a firm believer that plant-based, natural ingredients like sage, rosemary, grapefruit and lemon oil, coconut and palm kernel oil, and essences of mango and kiwi are all very beneficial to the skin health of your dog.

Last but not least, you will want to choose a shampoo that is formulated specifically for a dog. If you choose to bathe your dog with a more neutral ph dog shampoo, especially one with natural, plant-based ingredients, you will be amazed at the results.

Think about it....…we choose to wash our dishes with dish soap, our clothes with laundry soap, our bodies with bath soap, and our hair with human shampoo because they are specifically formulated for those purposes. You never want to shampoo your dog with any of these products. Their acidic ingredients will diminish and disrupt the natural protective qualities of your dog's coat and strip out the valuable oils from both the dog's coat and skin.

Your pet companion counts on you to choose the most effective natural pet shampoo available to get the bathing results you expect and your dog deserves.
