Shampoos for your dog
"Bathing is an important part of keeping your dog's skin and coat healthy."

Choosing the right shampoo for your dog

Bathing is an important part of keeping your dog’s skin and coat healthy. It can also be an important time for you to spend bonding with your dog, with scientific evidence suggesting that grooming a dog is a great way of reducing stress and blood pressure for both of you.

Different breeds will need to be washed at different times, though there can be some tell-tale signs that it’s time for a bath.

Does your dog have:

  • A white coat that’s looking a little dull?
  • A short coat that’s dry and in need of some moisture?
  • Allergies or a pre-diagnosed skin condition?
  • A coat that keeps on shedding?

Whatever type of coat your dog has, the PURINA PETLIFE range of shampoos is sure to have your dog’s needs covered. The range of PETLIFE Shampoos and Sprays are pH balanced and sulphate free, with a variety of fragrances to ensure your dog smells clean and fresh!
