TropiClean shampoo

Pet owners need to find a shampoo for their dogs and other furry house pets (like cats, puppies, and kittens) which does not contain harsh chemicals and hence would not be toxic for their pets.

TropiClean is a well-known pet care brand that caters to the various cleaning and grooming needs of house pets. The TropiClean shampoos are made for dogs and are safe to be used on them. They are generally safe on other pets as well, including cats.

There are different products in the TropiClean shampoo range. While all of them can clean the furry coats of your pet (including short hair, medium length hair, and long hair breeds), each of these shampoos caters to a specific function like soothing, conditioning, or softening the coats.

Is TropiClean shampoo safe for dogs?

All TropiClean shampoos are made with natural, safe ingredients that are not toxic to dogs. There are some hypoallergenic shampoos as well, which are particularly useful for dogs with sensitive skin.

None of the shampoos contain artificial chemicals as they can irritate the dogs’ skin and cause redness, swelling, and itches. Harsh chemicals can also lead to more serious complications.

TropiClean waterless shampoo

The TropiClean Berry and Coconut shampoo has separate formulations for dogs and cats. There is also a TropiClean Aqa de Coco shampoo formulated specifically for cats. These are made with organic ingredients that are completely safe for your pet dogs and cats. These waterless shampoos are useful for a quick clean between your regular scheduled baths and are safe to use on puppies as well.

TropiClean Flea & Tick shampoo

Neem and pine extracts are a natural remedy for fleas and ticks and the TropiClean Neem & Citrus shampoo is formulated with these ingredients along with Orange, and oatmeal. The smell from the shampoo is not too overwhelming and so your dog is not repulsed by the strong smell of these organic products. It’s as such a completely safe and effective shampoo.

Is TropiClean shampoo safe for puppies?

The TropiClean Gentle Coconut Puppy & Kitten is made specially for young pets. This shampoo is gentle on the skin, hypoallergenic, and completely safe. The shampoo is tear-free and contains aloe extract that helps retain moisture. Quick note though – this shampoo is only recommended for pets that are 12 weeks or more. So, do not use it on newborn pets.

Is TropiClean shampoo safe for cats?

TropiClean has an entire range of shampoos formulated specifically for cats. This includes the TropiClean Deep Cleaning Waterless Cat shampoo, the Dander Waterless Cat Shampoo, and TropiClean Aqua de Coco Waterless Cat Shampoo. You also have the Gentle Coconut Puppy& Kitten shampoo that is meant for younger cats (and pups). There are also the TropiClean Oatmeal & Tea Tree pet shampoo, and TropiClean Berry & Coconut Pet Shampoo that are safe for cats as well as dogs.

TropiClean waterless shampoo

The waterless shampoos from TropiClean are gentle on the skin and contain a mild cleanser, topped with an odor neutralizer, and natural extracts of coconut, oatmeal, or other such ingredients. As such, there is really nothing about this shampoo that makes it unsafe for cats.

TropiClean Flea & Tick shampoo

The natural TropiClean Flea & Tick Shampoo is made with ingredients like oil from clove, lemongrass, cedarwood, and sesame seed, which is then topped with SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) and other ingredients. 

While the ingredients are not particularly unsafe for cats, you should know that this shampoo is primarily targeted at puppies and dogs. So, it is not exactly recommended for cats. 

If you are not sure, it is a good idea to instead go for a flea & tick spray from TropiClean. This can be sprayed around your household and helps protect your cat from these pests. 

Is TropiClean shampoo tearless?

The TropiClean Gentle Coconut Puppy & Kitten Shampoo is tearless. This hypoallergenic shampoo contains very soothing natural elements like aloe and coconut which deeply cleanse the furry coats of puppies and kittens, while at the same time replenishing the moisture in their skin. 

Does TropiClean shampoo expire?

TropiClean shampoos typically expire two years from the date of manufacture. Using the shampoo past its expiration date would not be harmful, but it would not be as effective either. 

How good is TropiClean dog shampoo?

All the TropiClean shampoos (whether those meant specifically for dogs or for house pets in general) are made of organic materials and do not contain harsh chemicals and soap, barring regular ingredients like sodium lauryl sulfate. These shampoos effectively cleanse the coats of our furry friends, while also ensuring a silky smooth cascading coat without harming the delicate fur and skin of your pet dog.
