It is very important that you use a specific cat shampoo when washing your cat. Human shampoo should never be used on cats because the skin pH levels are very different. Using a shampoo made for a different pH level can lead to a distortion of the natural pH levels and cause skin problems.
Specific shampoos exist to help treat your cat's skin problems and alleviate symptoms. Vetsend offers a wide range of cat shampoos to treat disorders such as atopic syndrome, seborrhoea, pyoderma, fleas and ticks and dry and sensitive skin. This range includes brands such as Allercalm, Allermyl, Duoxo, Demoscent, Espree and Tasman.
