Flea Shampoo For Dogs

Unwelcome Fleas and Ticks on Your Pet? Scrub a Little Nature on It

Fleas and ticks can be a nuisance for both pets and their owners. Fortunately, with the right products, you can effectively manage these pests. Here’s how to use Vet's Best dog shampoo products to help get your furry friend tick- and flea-free.



Flea Shampoo for Dogs Ingredients

Our flea and tick dog shampoo is formulated with natural ingredients that are tough on fleas and ticks but gentle on your pet’s skin. Here’s a closer look at the key ingredients that make this flea shampoo for dogs so effective:


Clove Oil (0.63%): Clove oil is a powerful essential oil known for its insecticidal properties. It contains eugenol, which is highly effective at killing fleas and ticks on contact. Clove oil also has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory benefits, helping to soothe irritated skin and promote healing. This natural ingredient is a crucial component in our flea and tick shampoo, ensuring that pests are eliminated effectively without the use of harsh chemicals.

Cottonseed Oil (0.03%): Cottonseed oil is another natural ingredient that plays a vital role in our shampoo’s effectiveness. It helps to moisturize and condition the skin and coat, preventing dryness and irritation. Cottonseed oil also contains natural insecticidal properties, providing an added layer of protection against fleas and ticks.

Inert Ingredients (99.34%): The inert ingredients in our shampoo include a blend of substances that support the active ingredients and enhance the overall efficacy and usability of the product. These ingredients are carefully selected to ensure they are safe and beneficial for your pet.

- Water: Water is the primary solvent in our shampoo, helping to dissolve other ingredients and making the product easy to apply and rinse off.

- Soap: The soap in our shampoo is derived from natural sources and is responsible for creating a rich lather that effectively cleanses your pet’s coat. It helps to remove dirt, debris, and dead fleas and ticks, leaving your dog’s coat clean and fresh.

- Glycerin: It helps to keep your pet’s skin hydrated and prevents dryness and flakiness. Glycerin also contributes to the smooth texture of the shampoo, making it easy to apply and spread through the coat.

- Sodium Chloride: Sodium chloride, commonly known as salt, is used to adjust the viscosity of the shampoo. It ensures the product has the right consistency for easy application and rinsing. Additionally, sodium chloride has natural antiseptic properties that help to keep the skin clean and free from infections.

- Myristic Acid: Myristic acid is a fatty acid that acts as a surfactant, helping to create a rich lather and enhancing the cleansing properties of the shampoo. It also contributes to the overall conditioning effect, leaving your dog’s coat soft and manageable.

- Castor Oil: Castor oil is a natural emollient that helps to nourish and moisturize the skin. It has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, making it an excellent ingredient for soothing irritated skin and promoting healing.

- Vanillin: Vanillin, derived from vanilla beans, is used as a natural fragrance in our shampoo. It provides a pleasant scent that leaves your pet smelling fresh without the use of synthetic fragrances, which can sometimes irritate sensitive skin.


These carefully selected ingredients work together to create a flea and tick shampoo that is both effective and gentle. By combining the power of clove oil and cottonseed oil with the supportive properties of the inert ingredients, Brand Shampoo offers a comprehensive solution for keeping your pet free from fleas and ticks while maintaining a healthy and shiny coat.
