UA-60701407-50 Golden Daily Scoop: Is Your Dog Shampoo Safe?

February 2, 2016

Is Your Dog Shampoo Safe?

Have you ever read the back of your dog's shampoo bottle for the list on ingredients?

I have to admit the first thing I look for when choosing a dog shampoo is the scent. Is it going to smell good?

Well, that has all changed since being introduced to 4-Legger Organic Dog Shampoo.
Nearly two years ago, Melissa of 4-Legger lost one of her dogs to cancer and on that same day received news that her biopsy came back and she had breast cancer. 

On a quest to look at the food we feed our dogs as well as the products we use on them, she discovered that so many "natural" products are not natural and the title "organic" is not truly that.

She found that some manufacturers take a few organic ingredients then combine them with sulfates to produce a product that sounds great but is not good for our dog's skin.

Now that Melissa has completed treatment and her cancer is in remission, she has taken on a mission to bring to the market products that don't just say "natural and organic" but really are.

After shaking and opening the bottle you instantly get that lemongrass scent which filled the room. I loved that this shampoo wasn't too thick and was easy to apply.

Unlike most shampoos I have used, with 4-Legger you only need a small amount and it rinses out so easily, making bath time quicker and easier.

The lemongrass scent not only makes your furry friend smell good but it has the ability to repel insects. Many natural pet products include it for its repellant effects on fleas and tics.

  1. You know, we never even thought about checking the ingredients in the shampoo. We are like you and check the scent because we never want anything too perfumey. This product sounds great. I will have to check it out.

  3. i look to make sure it's made in the USA...other than that I kind of just assume it's safe. I don't know much about shampoo ingredients!

  4. We love reading about organic shampoos!

  5. I look for natural products at a reasonable price. Too many brands either contain ingredients that aren't the best for dogs, or are so overpriced that I can't afford them for my four rescued Treeing Walker Coonhounds.

  10. Fantastic Review!!! I love 4-Legger. I just gave a bottle to my friend and I'm curious about her thoughts. Being a blogger has opened my eyes to so many things. It started with flea & tick treatment, then diet, and now it's spread to everything else.

    I only use all natural shampoo bars and 4-Legger dog shampoo on my pups.

  16. ilook for specific things, no gmo's, no chemicals, all natural ingredients and where they are sourced, who makes it, i need something that whitens and brightens the white feathers and beards, so i usually use a combo of whitening and darkening, since they are black on the body. i also use conditioner, all natural flea/tick shampoos, my dogs have more shampoos than i do plus.
