Can You Use Human Shampoo on a Cat?


Cat a little dirty? If you don’t bathe your cat often, you may not have feline shampoo laying around. Can you use human shampoo instead?

You won’t do too much damage to your cat if you decide to use human shampoo, but that doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. The ingredients in human shampoo can really dry out your cat’s skin. Not only will it make him itchy, it will strip his fur of the oils that keep his hair healthy. It could even cause your cat to produce even more oil.

It’s really best to take a quick trip to your local pet store to pick up some shampoo just for your cat. You can also consider paying a professional groomer to do the work for you! For help grooming your pet, click here, or call your veterinarian Leesburg, VA.
