Sometimes you need to bath your cat. Whether its because they got into something nasty outside or to help keep their long hair looking good. No matter the reason, choosing a good shampoo is important to keep your cat's fur healthy.
Shampoos and conditioners used by us leave your cat’s hair and skin dried out. Ones with mild ingredients, like oatmeal, work well for most pets. Check the ingredient labels to make sure your shampoo is designed for good bathing results. Here’s a few that are approved by vets and with good reviews.
- Four Paws Magic Coat Cat Tearless Shampoo – water-based with aloe and lanolin
- Earthbath All Natural Pet Shampoo – all natural
- Top Performance Fresh Pet Shampoo – Ph balanced reduces itching and flaking
- Vet’s Best Dry Clean Waterless Cat Bath – leave in foam with aloe, neem oil, vitamin E and oatmeal
Bath time can be scary for most cats. Make your feline as comfortable as possible by talking quietly and smoothing their coat as you go. Both of these actions will help sooth their nerves and make them more receptive to the process, making bath time a great experience for you both.
