Why you need a cat shampoo
Only cat shampoos contain the appropriate acidity level for your cat’s skin. This helps prevent flaking, drying, excess dander and shedding. And unlike the ingredients in other shampoos—like human shampoos with aloe—cat shampoos will only contain ingredients that are safe for your cat.
You can find specially PH-balanced cat shampoos at pet stores as well as drug and grocery stores. Also look for waterless or foaming formulas, which many cats prefer.
