Did you know that February is Pet Dental Awareness Month? If you didn’t see last year’s blog article all about it, you should read here. This year we thought we’d highlight one the newer brands to our store, Tropiclean who make a brilliant range of products dedicated to the oral care of your cats and dogs. Alongside their dental products they also produce a number of shampoos, conditioners and cleaning products to take care of your pet’s grooming regime. Here we’ll take a closer look at the brand and tell you why we love it. We’ll also highlight some of our favourite products from the line-up, starting with those all-important dental items so that you can take care of your pet’s teeth this Dental Awareness Month.
All About Tropiclean
It all started in 1992 when the brand began creating premium quality dog grooming products made from natural ingredients. They went on to create natural tick relieving shampoos, detangling products and then introduced their dental range in 2010. We love the brand for their natural ingredients that are kind to pets. They include coconut which is used as a gentle cleanser, aloe for its skin soothing properties and mango which leaves fur looking healthy and shiny. Did we mention that they smell great too?! All natural and fragrant; what more could you ask for in cat and dog grooming products?!
Tropiclean Dental Products for Cats and Dogs
There are a number of dental products in the Tropiclean range for both cats and dogs. The range for dogs includes the TropiClean Oral Care Kit for Dogs (of which there’s an option for small dogs and one for puppies), and the Clean Teeth Oral Care Gel (one for puppies and one for dogs). Then for cats, Tropiclean have developed a feline version of the oral care gel.
Pet dental hygiene is a really important consideration. Some cats and dogs will get by eating dental treats and dry food which will keep their teeth in good condition, but some pets will need extra care in the form of brushing or other treatment. Your vet should check your pet’s teeth at their regular check-ups and let you know if any special treatment is required.
We’d definitely suggest using one of the Tropiclean products as it will really help to keep your pet’s teeth in tip-top condition.
Tropiclean Shampoos and Conditioners for Dogs
When it comes to bath time, ensuring you have suitable products to hand is a must. Tropiclean make a range of brilliant shampoos that are gentle on pets, but also get great results.
For dogs there is the TropiClean Aloe and Coconut Deodorising Shampoo, TropiClean Natural Flea and Tick Shampoo Maximum Strength and TropiClean Waterless Shampoo Papaya and Coconut. Each one has slightly different ingredients depending on the results you're looking for. The first is brilliant at deodorising and leaving your dog with a soft coat, the second is brilliant for keeping fleas and ticks at bay and the third is great if your dog isn’t the best in water.
For cats there is a dedicated waterless shampoo in the form of the TropiClean Waterless Deep Cleaning Cat Shampoo. This is an easy-to-use product that can simply be sprayed on to your cat to restore natural moisture whilst gently cleaning any dirt. They’ll smell divine after using this too!
We also love the Deep Cleaning Wipes which are brilliant for minor clean-ups in-between bath times. They are suitable for both cats and dogs and are a brilliant addition to any pet travel bag.
Other Pet Grooming Products By Tropiclean
Other products that you should consider adding to your pet’s travel bag include the Alcohol Free Ear wash which is a must for any floppy eared spaniel out there, but also great for any dog that suffers from ear irritations or wax build up.
We also swear by the Tropiclean Tear Stain Remover. A gentle formulation that is suitable for both cats and dogs. The solution is made to cleans and moisturise the coat and skin around the eye area. It’s especially good on breeds such as Persians who are known for their weepy eyes.
Whatever kind of pet you have and whatever their grooming requirements are, you should certainly check out the range by Tropiclean.
