Many dogs have issues with their skin and fur. These can range from excessive shedding to skin allergies. Thankfully there are dog shampoos and conditioners available that will help with these issues. Many times with the help of high quality, all-natural pet shampoos and conditioners you will not need any prescriptions. One of the best shampoos we sell is the Cain and Able Collection. Below are explanations of their ingredients and what they will do to help your dog.
These all natural dog shampoos are coconut based. They do not contain harsh detergents, synthetic perfumes or artificial colors. These can dry out the fur, cause allergic reaction, eye irritation, skin rashes, and hair loss.

Dog shampoo is great for opening up the hair shaft to allow the ingredients of the shampoo to get in to do their job. If the hair shaft is left open, these good ingredients will escape and leave the dog’s hair dull and brittle, which could lead to itching and scratching. Dog conditioner will close this hair shaft and smooth the hair and restore moisture.
Common Ingredients in Conditioner.
Aloe- Is great for the treatment of irritated skin. It also has antiseptic and antibiotic properties.
Shea Butter- Will help to moisturize and soothe your dog’s skin and fur. It also features anti-inflammatory properties.
