While most of the British public excitedly dig out their shades and shorts in eager anticipation of the warmer weather, many of their four-legged furry friends are less fortunate when it comes to enjoying the summer.  High pollen counts, hot temperatures and increased numbers of pesky parasites can make these months a misery for many cats and dogs, sometimes causing incapacitating skin conditions. Luckily, the ‘Happy in My Skin’ campaign and brand new Oatmeal Advance Shampoo are on hand to save summer.

Our new super Oatmeal Advance Shampoo features high on the list of skin health saviors. Boasting active ingredients of calming oatmeal, healing lavender oil extract and moisturising glycerine, it’s ideal for soothing the skin and cleanses the coat. Containing absolutely no artificial fragrances or colourings and formulated with the optimum neutral pH to suit canine skin, Oatmeal Advance Shampoo relieves and replenishes to maintain natural balance and preserve protective properties. It is also made without any artificial additives or controversial surfactants sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) or sodium laureth sulfate (SLEs) that can produce skin irritation, making it a great choice for everyday cleaning, whether it’s washing off sand or calming those mild itches. 

Of course the most effective way to alleviate skin problems is by using our herbal medicines Garlic & Fenugreek Tabletsand Mixed Vegetable Tablets,which have healthy skin promoting properties, providing relief from a variety of symptomatic skin complaints such as itching, irritation and redness. Both products have been shown to work even better when given together! Luckily they are on offer in a ‘special twin pack’ with a discount of 20% until 13th June so quick buy before stock runs out. Best of all you will also receive a FREE sample of Oatmeal Advance Shampoo as well to try!
