Pet wipes (also called dog wipes, or cat wipes, sometimes even dog shampoos, and sometimes even cat shampoos) are simply special wipes specifically made for the feline, not for the human baby. They’re simply meant for use on the pet, and since we prefer not to put detergent and harsh chemicals on our pet, this is a good choice for pet owners. Dog or pet wipes aren’t just disposable cleaning cloths either: they can also be used to:
Clean your pet immediately after spending time outdoors. Unlike house cleaning pet wipes that leave residue on the coat and carpet, aloe vera-based cleaner is a natural way to thoroughly clean your pet’s skin without making a mess. Aloe vera cleanses both the inside and the outside of your pet’s coat, and its natural astringent properties help to alleviate any itching or dryness that may have occurred from the wetness of your pet’s coat.
Use pet wipes to lightly remove any food crumbs, teething beads or spit-back foods from your baby’s coat. Some breeds, such as German shepherds, have extremely sensitive stomachs and can develop a condition called teething. If your pet has been house trained and is still getting those sharp nips and bites, then use essential oils like aloe vera and coconut oil to soothe your pet’s skin and help reduce the discomfort associated with teething.
Use pet wipes to gently clean your pets’ eyes. The oils in an aloe vera make cleaning the eyes easy, but it also helps to soften the fur for a more comfortable rubbing. Use baby wipes to pat the inner cheeks, and then wash away with a steady stream of water from the shower. You can also use baby wipes to gently clean around the lips and chin. Your pet’s coat will be softer this way, and you can bet that your pet will enjoy being brushed, rather than having its skin ragged from the brush.
If your pet has a sensitive skin condition, then you should always use baby wipes to bathe your pet in the bathroom. This is especially true if you are traveling with your pet. Always rinse your hands thoroughly after touching your dog, and do not allow your pet to run loose in your hotel or unfamiliar surroundings. Most dogs are accustomed to being bathed by humans, but baby wipes and other natural pet wipes are a much safer alternative to using pet shampoo.
As mentioned earlier, one of the main reasons that pet wipes are a better alternative to baby wipes is because they are much easier on the environment. Pet dander is similar to the pollen found in our own homes, and it can easily circulate throughout the home. Baby wipes and other natural pet wipes do not contain traces of pet dander, which means that they are safe for humans and your pet to use. Using these wipes every single day, or as directed by your veterinarian, will give you a clean dirt-free air to breathe, which will help you to rest much easier when you come home from a hard day at work.
