Five Tips for Using a Deodorizer on Your Dog & Cat

Five Tips for Using a Deodorizer on Your Dog & Cat

As a pet owner, you love your furry friend and want them to smell their best. But let's face it – they can get pretty stinky between baths. That's where a deodorizer can come in handy. Using a deodorizer between baths can help keep your pets smelling fresh and clean. However, it's important to use best practices when using a deodorizer on your pet. Here are five tips we know you'll love: 

  1. Choose a deodorizer specifically made for dogs or cats

Not all deodorizers are created equal. It's important to choose a deodorizer that is specifically made for dogs or cats. Human deodorizers can be harmful to dogs or cats, as they may contain chemicals that can irritate their skin or cause an allergic reaction. Our Probiotic Deodorizer is formulated to be safe for your pet’s skin and is designed to support your pet's natural defenses against itching, dryness, irritation & odor.

  1. Test the deodorizer on a small area first

Before applying the deodorizer all over your dog or cat, test it on a small area first. This will help you ensure that they don’t have a negative reaction to the product. Apply a small amount of the deodorizer to an inconspicuous area, such as the inside of a hind leg. Wait a few hours to see if there is any redness, swelling, or other signs of irritation. If your pet has a reaction, discontinue use of the deodorizer.

  1. Follow the instructions carefully

Be sure to read the instructions on the deodorizers carefully and follow them exactly. Applying too much deodorizer or not following the instructions could cause irritation or other issues. Some deodorizers require you to spray the product directly onto your pet’s coat, while others require you to spray it onto a cloth and then rub it onto your pet. Make sure you understand how to use the product properly.

  1. Avoid spraying the deodorizers directly on your dog's face

When applying the deodorizer, avoid spraying it directly on your pet's face or near their eyes, nose, or mouth. Instead, spray it onto a cloth or your hands and gently rub it onto their coat. If you need to apply the deodorizer to your pet's face, use a damp cloth to wipe their face and then apply the deodorizer to the cloth before gently rubbing it onto their face.

  1. Don't rely on deodorizer as a substitute for baths

While using a deodorizer can help keep your pet smelling fresh between baths, it's important to remember that it's not a substitute for regular bathing. Bathing with a shampoo and conditioner is still necessary to keep your pet clean and healthy. Using a deodorizer in between baths is a great way to keep your dog smelling fresh and clean, but it should not replace regular baths.

And that's it! Using deodorizers in between your pet’s baths can be a great way to keep your furry friend smelling fresh and clean. By choosing a deodorizer that is made with your pet in mind, you can rest easy knowing your pet is both happy and healthy, and of course, smells wonderful!
