Product Review- Anicura Dog Shampoo & Spray

Canine health is not just limited to diet and exercise, there are many other aspects that you can do to keep your furry friend happy. Skin care is often an aspect that people can overlook, but dogs can have sensitive, flaky, itchy and bad skin days too!

We had the pleasure of being sent some products from Anicura to try.  I'm very particular with what I use on the pack, they are raw fed, naturally flea'd and wormed and no longer have yearly vaccinations but instead have titre tests. A lot of dog shampoos and skin products on the market have numerous chemicals and artificial additives that can in fact exacerbate some dog skin, but Anicura's products contain no nasties, only pure natural ingredients. Therefore they are ideal products for pets with sensitive skin.
I had the pleasure of trying the Dog Spray and Dog Shampoo. Baird and Daisy Boo both have some sort of skin problem and I was eager to try (and I'm sure they where too!)

Baird suffers terribly from itchy skin, he will sit and scratch himself for hours unless I stop him. I have used the Anicura Dog Spray several times a day for over a week and it certainly has made a difference,  he is less itchy, his coat looks healthier and he smells a bit nicer! The smell was a little bit over powering for him at first however
I opted to try the shampoo & spray  with Daisy Boo (Baird is terrified of the bath!) as she suffers from dry skin that can be worsened by certain triggers which gives her awful red sores on her stomach and legs.
It's a superb Shampoo, not overly soapy and washes off wonderfully, leaving coats fresh and shiny.
Another positive is that the bottle the shampoo is in is rather strong- I only say this after Boo knocked it off the bath edge and onto the floor- it made a bang but didn't break or crack. Bonus! :)

Sana and Dante do no suffer from problem skin, however the shampoo is made from all natural ingredients so I used it on both of them too again with fantastic results.

In conclusion it has been a pleasure to use these products and results have been seen already! Anicura also offer numerous other products for both dogs and cats. Give them a visit here.
