- Pet Soaps and Balms-

Pet soaps have to be a little different to the soap we use ourselves. Cats and dogs can react to some fragrances that are otherwise beneficial and pleasant to humans. They also require products suitable for their fur and skin. Any products made for pets must be safe for both the animal and the owners who clean them, though individual allergies must also be considered.

 

Occasional use of plain human soap on a dog will cause dry skin, itching and result in some hair loss. This is due to the different PH level (the acid/alkaline level) of dog skin and human skin. Soap for pets is designed to keep the PH level of the animal’s skin at the correct level. Repeated use of plain human soap may cause the PH level to alter, resulting in a breeding ground for infections and bacteria. A dog that smells bad may have a skin infection, ironically bought on by washing with the wrong soap. Use of the correct pet soap will prevent these issues.

 

An often overlooked consideration is ingestion of the soap or shampoo. Unlike humans, dogs and cats often lick themselves. Licking some human shampoos and soaps will cause stomach complaints and vomiting. Pet soaps are designed so that injection in moderate qualities will not cause serious harm, though pets should be thoroughly washed and discouraged from licking soapy skin or fur.

Pet soaps are relatively inexpensive, and as pets do not need to be washed as frequently as humans the pet soap tends to last a long time. Many pet owners find they can keep their carpets clean with a regular washing of their pet’s feet. An appropriate soap makes all the difference to the pet and the owner’s environment.
