Here on the bayou, we went for three months without rain. It was nice because we never had to deal with the “wet dog” smell. Bentley and Pierre didn’t need a bath every week so that was great! The change of seasons has brought torrential downpours and the return of the dreaded wet dog. That means more baths. Bentley has always enjoyed his bath time. Pierre, on the other paw, has considered it a form of waterboarding. It has taken two years, but I am proud to say that he now volunteers to go first. That’s right; I ask them who wants to go first. It is pretty funny to watch them decide because there is definitely communication going on between them.
Now that baths are becoming more frequent, it is important that I don’t use any harsh shampoos or any with harmful chemical additives. Thankfully,
Dr. Harvey has created two proprietary blends that are all-natural. There is an Herbal Shampoo and an Herbal Protection Shampoo. Both are detergent-free with no sulfates, parabens, artificial colors or fragrances. Bentley and his sensitive nose are especially happy there are no strong perfumes.
*Notice that Sodium Laurel Sulfate (SLS) is not among the ingredients. You will find it in many skin products that foam. Did you know that animals exposed to SLS can experience eye damage, depression, trouble breathing, diarrhea, severe skin irritation and in some cases, death? It can remain in their body for up to five days and maintain residual levels in the major organs. Be sure and check your labels!
These herbal shampoos will make suds but are easily rinsed out of short or long-haired dogs. Both leave them feeling soft without drying their skin. I've noticed that they aren’t itchy after bathing. That has been a problem with other shampoos.
Dr. Harvey's products are earth-friendly and biodegradable so you can bathe your dog outside without feeling guilty. Of course, like all of their products, they are made in the U.S.A. and never, ever tested on animals.
