Our Undiluted Hypoallergenic Pet Shampoo
16 oz in recyclable plastic bottle. Certified organic. Natural oils, no detergent, alcohol, filler or lye.
Our Undiluted Hypoallergenic Pet Shampoo does not foam as much as conventional shampoo, making rinsing and clean-up much easier.
We are pleased to introduce the first USDA Certified Organic Pet Shampoo to grateful pets and pet owners everywhere. Finally, a safe, economical, highly effective alternative to detergent and chemical cleaners is available for our furry friends. This all natural, hypoallergenic product is perfect for pets of all ages, breeds, hair and skin types - and especially our itchy, stinky pets.
WHY THIS MATTERS:
The detergent chemicals commonly used in pet shampoos create lots of problems for our pets. While your pet may not always show immediate symptoms, pets tend to develop sensitivities to such products if used more than once. Synthetic detergents are especially troubling as they may contain ingredients that are overtly toxic to some animals. Because no chemical detergents, synthetic fragrances, colors, or antimicrobial preservatives are used in our Undiluted Hypoallergenic Pet Shampoo, the possibility of sensitivity reactions is greatly reduced. The natural essential oil blend also helps to repel fleas and ticks without poisoning your pet.
This product is extraordinarily mild, soothing and very cleansing - hypoallergenic and free of detergents, synthetic fragrances, colors, filler, antimicrobial preservatives, lye, alcohol, petroleum or animal by-products. It meets all USDA Organic Food Standards. This product is made in Vermont by Vermont Soap Organics. Both the factory and product are certified by NOFA and Vermont Organic Farmers (VOF).
Our Undiluted Hypoallergenic Pet Shampoo is made from organic coconut, olive and jojoba oils, organic aloe vera, and a combination of natural and organic essential oils. Natural rosemary extract is the only preservative.
EASY TO USE -
Dogs should be bathed every month to remove accumulated toxins that can make them more susceptible to disease. However, excessive bathing, especially with improper cleaning products, may remove natural oils and dry out a pets skin and coat.
Most pets with normal fur (not cats/see below): Wet pet thoroughly with warm water. Apply shampoo sparingly from head to tail (it's undiluted), gently massaging deep into coat and skin. Rinse well with clean, warm water. Your pet will have a natural, light lemon scent that should last for several weeks.
Most pets with thick, oily or water resistant fur (not cats/see below): Wet pet thoroughly with mixture of shampoo and warm water from a bucket (1 cupful per gallon of water). Apply a little more shampoo directly on pet from head to tail, gently massaging deep into coat and skin. Rinse well with clean, warm water. Your pet will have a natural, light lemon scent that should last for several weeks.
Cats: These pets normally do not require bathing since they do well keeping themselves clean. Sometimes a bath is required to treat or control fleas, to treat a skin condition, to remove a noxious or dangerous mess from your cat's fur, or to prepare for medical treatment. The squeamish, inexperienced, and uncertain should probably let a veterinarian or groomer take care of these mandatory baths as cats are prone to bite and scratch. For those who want to try it at home, here are several bath basics:
Ready your cat bathing station. Use a large sink with a dish sprayer attachment or the bathtub. Start the water before you put the cat in, and make sure it's not too hot or too cold. A comfortable temperature for your hands should work fine. You're going to get wet and possibly jumped on by an upset, sopping cat, so dress appropriately in clothes that can get soiled yet protect you from scratches.
Before you add the cat. Bathing a cat is often a two-person job -- one to restrain and one to bathe -- but you can do it yourself. Either way, practice restraint techniques on dry land before the bath. With one hand, grasp your cat firmly but gently at the base of the neck or on the scruff, pressing down slightly. See how well you can reach the various parts of your cat's body with the other hand. Figure out when and how you'll have to change grips during the bath. Get your bathing routine down step-by-step before the cat is in the tub or sink; otherwise, Tabby will be able to make a break for it in your moment of hesitation or confusion.
Wet down your cat, starting from the head and working down to the tail. Apply shampoo the same way, lather, and rinse thoroughly. Thorough rinsing is important, as residue will be swallowed when your cat licks its fur.
Drying your cat. Gently squeeze excess water out of your cat's fur, wrap her in a large fluffy towel, and dry. If she'll stand for it, you can comb out any tangles right away; otherwise, wait until she's dried off and settled down.
MEET MAGGIE - OUR ELDERLY WIRE HAIR TERRIER.
These adventurous dogs have thick hair, sensitive skin, and are prone to dry itchy skin plus a variety of rashes. Keeping Maggie reasonably clean or groomed always spelled trouble for her sensitive skin. Whether clean or dirty, she always seemed to be itchy or have hot spots and rashes. Getting groomed, playing in the grass or inside (dry air) played havoc with her tender skin. The shampoos from our vet and PetSmart (even the $1.50 per ounce stuff) just made her worse. In 2008, we began using Bearwobble's Undiluted Hypoallergenic Pet Shampoo each month. Maggie's skin problems vanished and her coat is absolutely beautiful. As with most terriers, Maggie loves dirt digging. Barring an unscheduled poop or carrion wallow, the clean, natural, very faint scent of lemon usually lasts until Maggie's next monthly bath. (Sadly, Maggie passed away 10/27/11).
