This is one of our most common questions asked. Over the years we
have tried most grooming products on the market geared toward this issue.
One of our favorites are the Micro Tek Products, as it works to create the
healthiest environment for healing and sooths upon contact. This shampoo
contains a patent pending formula developed from NASA research on the
decontamination of astronauts. It contains no soap or harsh detergents, will
not burn or hurt open wounds, it is safe for puppies and kittens,
non-steroidal, and alcohol free. In between Bathing there is a spay or gel
to follow up with.
While topical shampoos and sprays can certainly provide immediate relief for
your furry friend, long term benefits can come by evaluating and making
changes in your pets diet due to the fact that you pet is probably itching
from something systemic. This can range from skin sensitivities, allergies
Sensitivities can appear from something as simple as rolling in something
that irritated the skin, such as grass that may have been treated with
fertilizer or pest products to something that may have been used on the
carpets or flooring.
For other pets it may be linked to a food or grain allergy. You can often
times correct this by changing their diet to a grain free diet or by adding
supplements to their diet. Start by taking a look at the ingredients in the
food you are currently feeding. A helpful site to visit which makes it easy
to compare ingredients in your food is dogfoodadvisor.com. Once you select
a food to try, we are happy to provide samples of several of the foods we
carry. We offer a FREE 5# bag of Fromm to clients that have not been Fromm
users in the past. The Pet Palace has a no questions asked return policy for
any of the foods or treats we carry.
