Warmer weather always means more time outdoors for you and your pets. If your dogs and cats are anything like mine, more time outdoors, also means more baths.

Choosing the soaps and shampoos we use on our pets is actually very important. Some products can contain chemicals or certain substances that may have adverse or harmful reactions. It’s always a good idea to read the labels and only choose those shampoos and soaps containing ingredients such as herbs, aloe vera, or oatmeal.

Not only are these products less harmful, they can actually help keep your pet’s skin and fur healthy.
