If you own a Frenchies, then you are pretty much familiar with their tendency to show skin irritations and itchiness. These symptoms can be triggered by a number of reasons, and using inappropriate cosmetics can also be one of them. Therefore, choosing a high-quality and natural shampoo for a French bulldog is one of the most important tasks.
Carefully read the ingredients in your shampoo for a French bulldog
Cheap dog shampoos might sound attractive at first because of the price. However, they are often rich in artificial colors and harmful chemicals that can ruin a dog’s pH of the skin. Sulfates are widely used in shampoo production. They actually present one of the reasons why they are so foamy. On the other hand, they also make everyone’s skin dry, and can irritate our eyes, and even lungs.
Lauryl sulfate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) are compounds that have been produced from petroleum and plant sources such as coconut and palm oil. These components are often used in dish detergents, shampoos, liquid soaps, and even toothpaste. The amount of these two ingredients depends on the manufacturer and may vary from small amounts to almost 50 percent.
What is the best shampoo for a French bulldog breed?
When choosing a shampoo for a French bulldog, it’s essential to find the one that doesn’t sting the eyes. Since these little pooches have protruding eyes, it would be great to find a ‘no tear’ shampoo. Using baby shampoo and other cleaning products that are made for babies is not a good choice. They contain different pH values that dogs need. Therefore, it’s better to stick to dog products that are rich in natural herbs.
Dog shampoos serve to clean the dirt from their coats and to nourish their skin by providing it with all the essential vitamins and nutrients. We all have to agree that the dog’s hair reflects their health and care. Therefore, choosing the right dog shampoo is equally important as choosing a diet.
