Shampoo, how do you know which is best for your dog?

We have an all purpose shampoo which we use on all the dogs, unless your dog is having skin issues. This shampoo is called Davis Gold. It is scent free and does an excellent job of cleaning your dogs.

If you come in and tell us your dog has sensitive skin. We will suggest the Hypoallergenic Shampoo. It has no fragrance or additives and is gentle on your dog.

If your dog is itching and scratching, we would suggest the Baking Soda Oatmeal shampoo. This shampoo helps clean and deodorize your dogs skin. It also, remove the dead skin and helps sooth the new healthy skin.

If your dogs skin is really irritated and has redness, we would suggest using our medicated shampoo. This shampoo cleans and helps with skin issues from microorganisms and bacteria.

I might also recommend our new mud bath too. It is for dogs who have irritated skin. It is similar to a human mud bath. We apply it to a wet dog and let it sit for 10 minutes then we rinse the dog well. After the mud bath we will then give a bath with the above shampoos.

Skin conditions are quite common here in Arizona, just because of the climate. If you think your dog is having problems with dry skin, please feel free to ask anyone of us at your next appointment. We will be more than happy to check for you.
