Find a natural and Safe Shampoo for Dogs. Bathing
your dog regularly with a natural based soap will go a long way towards reducing pests on
your animals. Always read the ingredients before buying. Avoid using any soaps with
additives or coloring, dyes and in general avoid using if you can't pronounce the
ingredients! Be careful using shampoos that use pyrethrum
with Piperonyl Butoxide. It's
not the Pyrethrum that you should avoid but the additive. This stuff
can be harmful to
your dog and you as well. A good safe shampoo is called Flea Stop which contains
D-Limonene (comes from lemon peels) which kills fleas dead.
