Mane n Tail

Postby u-turn » Sat Mar 29, 2008 2:10 pm

U-turn stays dirty and goes in the tube about 2xs a week just to keep him clean enough to please the wifey.

problem is his coat doesnt seem to be as soft as it use to be.

i my wife asked if "mane n tail" was ok to use because her dad use to use it on his labs?

Im passing this question on to you experts now..

I think it is a little drying, but have used it diluted with great success.

I've found it to be drying as well. Don't like it.

We use Earthbath Clear Advantages Shampoo - it's soap-free and leaves our dog pretty soft but we only bath her once a month. In between washes (or after a playdate), we wipe her down with the Earthbath Grooming Wipes – it has aloe , vitamin E, awapuhi and green tea leaf extracts. It's basically a wetnap for dogs and doesn't dry out her fur.

I would also supplement with a fish oil of some kind to help replenish the oils in the skin.

I am going to start using a tea tree oil shampoo, but haven't found one so far. Considering trying to make my own shampoo from tea tree oil also. I have heard great things about tea tree oil for the skin.

you have to be very careful when using tea tree oil on dogs, it can cause temporairy paralysis

Yeah, that is what I just read an hour or so ago so we scratched that idea. We'll stick to our hexadene. Thanks for the warning though.

Ditto! Oxy Medicated shampoo & the rinse is what I use on my pups, and it leaves their coat shiny & oh so soft as well as smelling really nice!!! :inlove: I won't use anything else on my guy/gals..
