formula is made with organic peppermint oil, cedar oil
and rosemary oil—a natural antiseptic with disinfecting
properties. We also have a natural flea and tick spray that’s
ideal for when you’re outside.”
According to Creed, in addition to offering customers
a good selection of safe, effective flea and tick products,
retailers should be ready to dispense with some valuable
advice on how to keep pets free of pests. “;f your dog is
scratching or chewing e;cessively, it’s time to check their
skin and coat for fleas and ticks,” she says. “Check the
warm places fleas like to hide, armpits and groin, and
don’t forget the ears.”
;tching, whether from fleas, allergies, dry skin or other
causes, is a popular reason for owners to bathe their pets
at home, and Glo-;arr Products, ;nc. is ready to help
with a broad range of easy-to-use products, including its
Oatmeal Moisturizing Shampoo and Spray combo.
“These products are great for treating dry skin and is
very effective against grass and flea bite allergies,” says
Steve Nicolosi, national sales manager. “Bathe with the
shampoo and re-moisturi;e with the spray in between.”
;eskunking is another common reason to bathe at home. While effective, many home
remedies for skunk odor can dry out a pet’s skin. With this in mind, retailers that offer
products labeled for use on companion animals can be a helpful resource for pet ownrs.
Thornell’s Skunk Off is a tried and true solution, while Nature’s ;iracle offers several
skunk solutions. Best Shot’s One Shot line;shampoo, conditioner and spray combo;
also works well.
;or keeping pets clean between baths, consider carrying wipes and rinseless shampoos.
The ;awrenceburg, ;y.-based company, for e;ample, has a spot cleaner with a mild
cleanser that foams up a bit and wipes away, leaving a fresh smell with no residue. ;t
comes in si;es up to ; gal., with the ;-o;. si;e being perfect for pet owners to keep in the
car and for retailers to display near the checkout.
“We have noticed a huge increase with the sales on this product in our lines, as well as
people who are private labeling with us,” says Nicolosi. “This just reinforces the fact that
pet owners are looking for convenience and results with little to no effort.”
Wipes are available for eyes and/or ears, as well as full body or spot cleaning. Nearly
every major pet grooming brand offers wipes, rinseless shampoos, or both;a testament
to the fact that these products are becoming ever more popular with pet owners.
When it comes to the home grooming process, drying the pet may often be an
afterthought. ;et, not drying a coat completely can ultimately lead to odor and skin infections.
