    Default Still Looking for the Right Shampoo.

    I'm still on the hunt for a shampoo that works really well for smelly coats.

    It's one heck of a job to bath Inca. She loves it and stands still the whole way through. Sometimes she even wags her tail. But it takes so long to wash her and get the shampoo through all that fur. And boy do I go through the shampoo per wash.

    So, I'm still searching for a shampoo that leaves a good long-lasting smell in the coat.

    Anybody got any shampoos that might fit the bill?

    My Tuppence had a really smelly coat and nothing seemed to help. Turns out I was over washing her. She went from being bathed every week to once every 6 weeks or so.

    I don't like washing dogs at all unless I really have to, Emma, which is why I'm after a long-lasting shampoo.

    Anybody using Allergroom ATM?

    With Inca's coat I don't think she'd be able to be left for that long, particularly not on a raw diet! She'd be pink and red in no time and people would be running screaming thinking she'd killed someone

    I use one I bought from the pet store, it's natural with lavender (minimal quantity), peppermint oil and a couple of other oils in it, it doesn't froth up very much but the smell lasts a couple of weeks providing he doesn't roll in anything nasty! Or I use Aloeveen, I love Aloeveen, smells so good, and it's not bad for the skin and you can even get a conditioner :-D

    The neighbours had some Cate. The smell wasn't good IMO.

    Angela, I spot clean Inca's legs after chicken or meat, or else the pinkiness is hard to get out. I used Allergroom years ago, but can't find it anywhere here.

    Aloveen is nice, but I remember Allergroom being rather long-lasting.
    Stupid pet shop here. Found another one the other day. This one is crapping me off something chronic. I cannot handle being served by imbeciles who know nothing. (Woops, chucked an OT vent in there sorry.)

    I love the smell of the wool wash, I think it smells clean. But then I grew up with that smell in the laundry and on the dogs, so maybe that's the reason. You could try making your own?

    If you knew me Cate, you'd be rolling around on the carpet at present clutching your stomach at the very thought of that.

    My bottle only cost around $9 I have a couple of extra bottles and I can send one down to you next week? I have prepaid postpaks here that won't be used, so postage won't cost anything I just won't be able to get it sent until Monday.

    ETA: I'm referring to the natural one

    Huh? What bottle? oooh, I'm getting excited! Do you have Allergroom?
