Paraben and sulfate free – why?
All of our Health Mutt shampoo’s are organic, paraben and sulfate free because we are absolutely dedicated to looking after your dogs mental, physical and emotional wellbeing. Parabens basically imitate hormones and have an adverse effect on the endocrine system, they have also been linked to certain types of cancer. Sulfates are very harsh on the skin and only used to create foam. We are all so used to foam meaning ‘clean’ and that’s simply not the case. Yours and your dogs shampoo’s don’t need harmful sulfates in them. They have have also been linked to birth defects and other health issues. As a result we would rather not use them in our products. This means our shampoo’s shelf life is 12 months rather than 24 months but who keeps a bottle of dog shampoo for 2 years?
Why do I need to dilute the shampoo?
Our shampoo is great value for money as it’s extremely concentrated. Dilute it one part shampoo to three parts water before applying to your dog.
What about my dogs spot on flea treatment?
We as a company don’t endorse routine use of fipronil. (the active ingredient in spot on flea treatments) However our products don’t contain harsh soaps that can interfere with your dogs spot on flea treatment so you can use Health Mutt’s shampoo’s on your dog 48 hours after applying most spot on flea treatments.
How often should I bathe my dog?
Our shampoo’s are gentle and free of nasties and if necessary you could use this weekly. Monthly is more appropriate for dogs though.
How old should my dog be to be bathed?
Our products are safe to use on dogs from the age of 12 weeks.
Why don’t I get as many bubbles as other shampoo’s when I bath my dog in Health Mutt’s products?
Because we don’t use nasties! SLS/SLES make suds and as already described these may cause a whole host of problems and it's not the suds that get your dog clean - we are all just used to seeing them. You will get suds when you use our shampoo - just not to the extent as other shampoos that do contain those chemicals. Your dog will be clean after using our shampoo as instructed. Follow with a conditioner and your dog will be clean, fresh, soothed and relaxed and their skin and system wont be bombarded with totally unnecessary chemicals.
Restrictions for use: We wouldn't recommend that you use this on pregnant or nursing dogs or very tiny puppies as their are essential oils in them. We have a shampoo called 'clean' that doesn't contain any essential oils yet is still kind on the skin due to the Aloe Vera. This is a safer option for pregnant and nursing mums and their tiny puppies.
We always recommend a patch test of any product. Apply a little to the skin - wait 24 hours and if no reaction apply as normal.
