We know that people LOVE their pets, and it’s on us as owners to take every precaution to provide the healthiest options for them. In fact, many Americans are more likely to splurge on high quality food for their dogs than themselves!
The truth about the pet industry
The sad truth is that there is very little oversight in the pet industry and products are often sourced from foreign companies that leave pet products unregulated. As a result, it is largely up to these corporations to “self-police” the quality of their products… Yikes! If lead is ending up in products made for our children, what do you think ends up in products for your pets? It’s fair to say that the pet industry has some dirty secrets. Skinny & Co. is working to eliminate those secrets by creating fully transparent pet products that owners can be 100% sure are good for their animals.
Taking care of your pets’ skin
While most pet owners are aware that it’s important to eliminate toxins from an animal’s diet, how many of us are aware of the need to eliminate toxins from use on their skin? It is very important to care for your animals skin!
Does your animal suffer from any of the following?
- Dry skin
- Irritated/sensitive skin
- Build-up on skin/fur
- Breathing issues
All of these could be a result of what you are washing them with! Most pet shampoo is full of chemicals which cause a variety of symptoms. Dangerous preservatives, sulfates, parabens, and ethanolamines, are commonly found in pet shampoos. These harsh man-made chemicals can cause skin irritation, infection, and can be carcinogenic leading to cancers/tumors. If you wouldn’t put it on your own skin, why would you put it on an animal?
Putting our best paw forward
From this day forward, you’ll never have to ask yourself again, “Is coconut oil good for dogs?”
