You may be quaking in your boots at the mere thought of bathing your cat! Your feline friends can be averse to a dunking and can suddenly acquire super-human strength when attempting to escape your grasp. Although it is important to note that some cats don’t mind the water at all. However they happen to feel about it, sometimes bathing is necessary and it is important that you use the correct shampoo. Formulated specifically for felines, our fine cat shampoos have been selected from the outstanding Ancol Frontline, Pet Heads and Virbac collections.
When should you bath your cat?
Most cats are fastidious creatures which groom themselves well and so do not require regular bathing. But severe flea infestations could mean that your moggy will benefit from a bath. You may also need to shampoo them to remove something from their coat which they can’t lick off or which is poisonous such as engine oil, antifreeze and fragrance oils.
Elderly, obese or arthritic animals might not be able to groom themselves properly and will benefit from occasional baths to remain clean and healthy. Cats with painful arthritis might appreciate the soothing effect of warm water and a gentle massage. There’s only one way to find out!
Felines suffering from dry or irritated skin should be bathed using a moisturising and soothing shampoo. This will minimise itching while improving the condition of both fur and skin.
