We are all so busy these days that we usually just run in and out of the store with just the product we ran in for. I know I am guilty of this. If I run in to PetSmart to buy a can of dog food, I rarely venture into any of the other aisles. There are SO many great products to be found at PetSmart if we'd just take the time to check out some of the other departments. I was recently introduced to Bayer ExpertCare products as Chloe and LadyBug are both suffering from dry skin issues.
This time of year, when the temperatures drop, and the heat comes on...we go through the "dry skin" phase. I notice immediately when the girls start itching and looking uncomfortable.
Most of the time I groom Chloe and LadyBug at home and I find that using the new Bayer ExpertCare Moisturizing Shampoo is such a huge help! Bichon Frises, in particular, are prone to allergies and skin sensitivity problems. ExpertCare by Bayer Moisturizing Shampoo is a hypoallergenic shampoo you can use for routine cleansing and grooming. This shampoo's soap-free formulation with essential fatty acids and moisturizers is perfect for not only cleaning, but also protecting the skin and replenishing moisture. The Bayer ExpertCare shampoo will not interfere with topical flea and tick control as it is a soap-free formula.
The ingredients are: Water, Sodium C14-16, Olefin Sulfonate, Cocamidopropyl Betane, Sodium Lactate, PEG-150, PEG-75, Glycerin, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Sodium Chloride, Fragrance, Safflower Oil, FD&C Yellow #5, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, and Citric Acid.
In conjunction with Bayer ExpertCare Moisturizing Shampoo, I also use Bayer ExpertCare Skin Cleansing Dog Wipes...for the in-between bath times! They are specially formulated to cleanse dog's skin. I was so pleased to find that these wipes are alcohol-free and they are super convenient for travel!! I can just toss the convenient travel pack in my tote and we are good to go whenever! Each pack contains 20 wipes. These Bayer ExpertCare wipes are especially helpful when we are on an RV Trip. It is AMAZING what the girls pick up on their feet when we stop for a quick pit stop. Last year, when we left for Florida in March, there was still snow on the ground...quite a bit of snow actually. But, as we headed further south, the next stop had THE worst clay material mixed with dirt that just COVERED the girls' paws and they tracked it all over the floors in the RV. I wish I had these wipes then. It was so hard to get the clay "sludge" cleaned up. A lot of other wipes on the market contain alcohol, which is WAY too drying for the delicate Bichon skin.
Ingredients: Aqua, Sodium Cocoyl, Apple Amino Acids, Olus (Vegetable Oil), Glycerin, Saponaria Officinalis Extract, Melaleuca Cajputioil, Allantoin, Sodium Sorbate.
