Choosing Cat Shampoo

Cat shampoo can be purchased from online pet sites and local pet supply stores. When buying shampoo for your cat, you will have options to get one that suits your cat’s needs beyond just cleaning them.

Some popular attributes you may want to consider when you shop for cat shampoo:

  • HypoAllergenic
  • Cruelty-free
  • Organic
  • Unscented
  • Sulfate-free
  • Paraben-free
  • Water-less option
  • Fragrance-free
  • Plant-based ingredients

Cat shampoo comes in many varieties, just like human shampoo. Choices for cat shampoos include:

  • Detangler
  • Conditioner
  • De-shedding
  • Soothe itchy skin
  • Heal skin conditions
  • Prevent itching
  • Good for dry skin
  • Dandruff
  • Flea shampoo
  • Flea & Tick shampoo
  • For Kittens

Be sure to read the directions and uses listed on the shampoo. Some shampoos are for cats but not kittens and may contain ingredients that can irritate skin and eyes. Also, some need to be left on the cat for a minimum amount of time, so if you have a fidgety cat, you may not want to have a shampoo that needs to stay on for a few minutes before rinsing.
