Antibacterial and Anti-fungal Dog Shampoo Buyer’s Guide:
Now that you have seen some of the options available to you, there are still things you need to consider when purchasing your Antibacterial or Antifungal Dog Shampoo. One of the biggest and most important things to consider is this, does your dog have any allergies or sensitivities. If they do have sensitive skin it is vital for you to read through the list of ingredients thoroughly before purchasing to lower risk of accidents. Be sure to check the smaller print carefully and multiple times as that is where most manufacturers put the less gentle ingredients. Continuing onward, I will explain some of the terms I mentioned previously, that you should keep an eye out for.
These are mostly self explanatory, they are solutions that kill or reverse damage done by either fungus based infections or bacterial based irritations.
Antiseptic is used to clean out and sterilize wounds or scrapes. It is important for your shampoo to have this if you are purchasing it for an open wound, as it lowers risk of further infections due to allergens or dust mites getting into the injury. Be careful when applying to your pet, as the antiseptic may sting slightly and make them irritable.
This term merely means that when the ingredients were put together to form the product, the ones doing it where people with medical degrees in veterinary science. So you can be soothed with the knowledge that trained professionals worked on the recipe until it was as perfect as they could reasonably make it.
Aloe is one of the single best ingredients that you can have in your medical shampoo. Many people are aware of Aloe Vera and its uses for disinfecting cuts and scrapes. On top of that, it also is great for soothing irritated or dry skin and soothing itchy or painful skin.
