Wash your pet the professional way (like groomers do)  with Fido’s Oatmeal Shampoo by following the directions below.

a) First, assemble your tools! For puppies and kittens, heat the area where you will bath your pet. You will need a brush &/or comb, a plastic jug or clean, empty PET bottle, warm water and treats to reward your precious pet for a job well done!

b) BRUSH YOUR PET to get all the knots out of the coat. Use a detangling spray if needed. Bathing a pet with knots tends to make the knots shrink and much harder to remove without being painful.

c) WET YOUR PET with warm water. Start at the rump and run towards the head, including the underarms, groin and bottom area. Hold the ears closed, and head pointed down while you wet the head and face. DO NOT get water up the nostrils!

d) Put a good squirt of Fido’s Oatmeal Shampoo in a plastic jug or clean PET bottle and fill it with warm water, swirl and pour all over the coat. That helps wet the coat. Feet, ear tips and tail can be dipped into the jug to help wet those areas. Wet the face carefully with the jug mix to ensure no product gets into the eyes.

e) AAAHHHH! MASSAGE. Using your fingers, massage the mix into the coat, ensuring your nails don’t hurt the skin. Don’t forget the belly, bottom and armpits, the ear flaps and face, especially the hair around the lips. You can add some extra concentrated Fido’s Oatmeal Shampoo directly onto the coat for those greasy, irritated areas around the groin and lips.

f) “RINSE THE BUBBLES AWAY”. Rinse the whole pet with clean running water until the bubbles are gone, and then….

g) DO IT AGAIN! (you may not be able to achieve a second wash for many cats). The first wash gets rid of surface grime and opens follicles and hair scales; the second wash gets deep into the hair cortex and follicles for a lasting clean. Apply Fido’s Oatmeal Shampoo directly to the coat or into the mixing jug and MASSAGE into the coat, paying extra attention to feet, bottom and ear flaps.

h) RINSE RINSE RINSE until you can’t feel slippery hair anywhere. Pay extra attention to ear flaps, belly, groin, armpits, breastbone, chest and tail area. The coat should feel smooth without feeling slippery or “slimy”.

i) APPLY CONDITIONER to replace the natural oils removed by bathing. We recommend Fido’s Oatmeal Conditioner for a silky finish.

j)  DRY AND REWARD FOR EFFORT! Let the pet shake to remove 70% of the water. Towel dry by pressing on the coat, and get any water out of the ears with the rolled tip of the towel. Finish with a brush and the hair dryer at least 20cm from the skin (if applicable)

Now your clean and gorgeous pet deserves a treat; maybe you do too, for being such a good pet parent!
