Paraben is a preservative which is widely used in cosmetic, personal hygiene and even food products. These chemicals are very effective in preventing the growth of micro-organisms like bacteria, yeasts and fungi that can cause a product to decompose or spoil. Many studies have been carried out to establish the harmful effect of parabens on health and according to a few studies, parabens can cause cancer and interfere with the male reproductive functions. So, while buying a shampoo, soap or any other grooming and food product for your dog, ensure that they are paraben-free.
Do you enjoy the lather in your bath products or other cleansing agents? And if you select the shampoo for your pet based on how good a lather it produces, you need to think twice. Because such cleansing products contain a high amount of suphates, a chemical responsible for creating suds in cleansing products like shampoo, face wash or floor cleanser. There is no evidence that the lather created by soap, shampoo or a handwash necessarily increase the cleansing property of the product. On the contrary, sulphates can cause dryness of the skin that might result in allergy or irritation. Given the fact that a pet’s, particularly dog’s, skin is very sensitive, it’s best to avoid shampoos that contain sulphates.
Now, who doesn’t want bath and body products to smell divine? And your pet’s grooming products are no exception. But did you know that artificial fragrances are made up of a mixture of various synthetic chemicals? And some of these chemicals are linked to abnormal cell reproduction that can result in cancer, diabetes and obesity. And trust us, these can have far worse side effects on your pets. In case you desperately want your pet to smell good after a bath, you can opt for products that contain natural aromatic oils.
Just like artificial fragrance, artificial colours too contain a wide range of synthetic chemicals. Many artificial colours contain tar and lead, that are believed to be carcinogenic. Many studies have established the link between artificial colours and skin problems in dogs. So, if you want to keep your pet happy and healthy choose products that don’t have artificial colours listed as one of the ingredients.

Be Diligent about Vet Visits. “Don’t wait for the signs,” Dr. Becker stresses. Focus on “prevention first.” Pets age fast, and when it comes to illness they are programmed to mask weakness, “they’re naturally secretive.” One to two visits a year is ideal, but if you suspect a problem, don’t hesitate, and don’t self-diagnose. “In the last two years I’ve seen four or five cases where people went to the internet for help, and by the time they get to the vet it’s too late,” says Dr. Becker.
