One of the most distinct smells I can think of is that of a stinky dog. You know the smell – D-O-G. Unless you have never had a canine family member I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. They roll around in the dirt (and other ungodly things) and they jump at any chance they get to rummage through garbage. Let’s face it, dogs can smell really, really bad. That’s why it’s so important to give them baths regularly; well, that and some health issues too.
Regardless of how much they like or dislike bath time, a dog’s hygiene needs to be kept up. With that said, choosing the right bath time products is imperative. You want a product that will get them clean but not irritate their skin. Much like humans, pets can have special hygiene needs. Hair length, as well as any medical conditions, play a role in choosing the right pet bath time products. For my dog, Butter, we needed something to help calm her skin irritation.
The most recent pet bath time products we tried were from John Paul Pet. We got the Tea Tree Shampoo and Conditioning Spray for review purposes. Tea Tree oil is great for skin irritation so I was excited to try it on Butter’s hotspot to see how if it would help.
When the package arrived I immediately declared it to be bath time. Butter isn’t a big fan of bath time so it was a bit of a struggle, but once it was over she smelled noticeably better. The shampoo lathered beautifully and the tea tree scent was prominent. After her bath, we used the conditioning spray which smelled just as lovely as the shampoo. I sprayed extra on her underside since there was some matting. The spray helped me brush through the matting, leaving behind a silky smooth coat.
The most impressive thing about the shampoo and conditioning spray was the effect it had on Butter’s hotspot. She has a noticeable bald spot that obviously irritates her but since switching to John Paul Pet for bath time there has been obvious relief and her hair is growing back. Her happiness equals my happiness, so I’m now a huge fan of John Paul Pet.
The Shampoo and Conditioning Spray are both non-toxic and infused with natural Australian Tea Tree oil. They are pH balanced and tested on humans first, which I really appreciate since I am completely against animal testing of any kind.
Because I’m loving John Paul Pet so much I’m that much more excited to offer one winner the same products I received. If you’re in the U.S., you can enter the giveaway using the form below.
