Dogs have different skin acidity to humans, which makes them more prone to irritation from chemical shampoos. This can harm their skin’s natural microflora balance and cause discomfort – especially if used too frequently, or if your dog has allergies or sensitive skin. Choosing a probiotic pet shampoo that is enriched with beneficial ‘good’ probiotic bacteria, naturally sourced from plants, solves all these problems:
LUCAA+ Pet Care Shampoo is nourishing and gentle, with a neutral pH and no harmful chemicals. It is hypo-allergenic and suitable for sensitive skin, so can be used as frequently as required. The shampoo cleans away mud and dirt but also enriches and restores a healthy microbial balance to your dog’s skin and fur. Although the shampoo is beneficial, it’s still best not to wash your dog too often if possible.
LUCAA+ Probiotic Pet Shampoo Benefits
The key benefits of using LUCAA+ Probiotic Pet Shampoo are highlighted by the statistics from our case study, which you can read here.
The study was carried out by an independent veterinary practice, who assessed the tolerability of LUCAA+ Pet Shampoo over 4 weeks.
The veterinary practice examined the dogs before, during and after the trial period, looking for any potential skin conditions caused by the shampoo. Only dogs with good general well-being and healthy skin were allowed to take part.
One key statistic (which we were delighted to hear!) is that 100% of the test audience would both recommend and buy the shampoo after the study.
The other key test audience results were:
- 100% rated the shampoo as good or very good.
- 100% agreed that fur seemed better-kept and healthier.
- 100% agreed that the shampoo cleaned the fur gently.
- 95% agreed that fur was easier to comb.
- 95% agreed that dog odour was abolished for longer.
All the owners noted their dog’s odour improved and that the smell of the dog one week after the second application was either very pleasant or neutral.
The shampoo removes the root sources of odour rather than just masking with chemical fragrances that risk further skin irritation.
What Causes Unpleasant Dog Odour?
Unpleasant dog odour is caused by unhealthy sebum – the layer of fat under the skin that protects dogs from infection and cold weather.
Malfunctioning sebaceous glands can lead to a common condition called Seborrhoea, which causes dryness, redness, sensitivity and itching. LUCAA+ Pet Shampoo restores and replenishes the protective and healthy microbial balance of the sebum. This prevents and treats Seborrhoea and removes the source of the unpleasant dog odour.
LUCAA+ Pet Shampoo also significantly reduces the risk of Pyoderma, a common bacterial skin infection that causes redness, lesions, itching and pus.
Lesley Partridge, owner of PP Raw Dog Food in Essex, gave this testimonial:
“Due to my involvement in canine nutrition with my own raw dog food business, PP Raw Dog Food, I understand the key role probiotics and prebiotics play in a dogs health. When I found out there was a range new to the market that naturally cared for my elderly Shi Tzu’s other main key organ, her skin, I was very interested indeed. I found LUCAA+ Pet Shampoo to have a very pleasant odour, and with its neutral PH value, very gentle on my girl’s skin. She’d been having some minor topical issues which cleared up after a few uses of this shampoo.”
LUCAA+ is an exciting range and potentially a key player in maintaining your dog’s health in this very chemical-based and highly processed food world our poor dogs find themselves in today. At least I know I have a ‘go-to’ range unlike any other on the market.”
