12.12 How to choose its shampoo?

It is necessary to follow your veterinarian’s recommendations at all times. If your cat is already under local treatment or uses specialized shampoo due to a specific diagnosis and you wish to use any other shampoo (be it dry or liquid), ask your veterinarian for advice.

There are also alternatives to classic shampoos, such as dry shampoos. They can be useful to freshen up your cat between two shampoos or for cats that can’t stand water! Wipes are also interesting for small zones, like its paws or rectum for instance.

In certain cases, such as if your tap water is very hard and thus irritating or if your cat has a very sensitive or dry skin, it is advised to use a hydrating lotion after the shampoo
