Animal Grooming

What has RAHN to offer?

Grooming is a major part of any pet’s well-being. Like us every pet needs to be pampered once in a while.
However, what is good for us humans might not be the best for them. 

Letʼs learn about some facts and check out what RAHN can offer for your animal grooming products.

Care for Canines / Felines

  • Bathing is an important part of general pet care. For cats and dogs with healthy skin and a healthy coat, the most common reason to bathe is to remove an unpleasant odour or because they’ve accumulated dirt on their coat.
  • Further benefits of bathing can include cleaning the skin and coat which helps to remove loose hair, scale and improve the coat’s shine.
  • If you are bathing your pet too frequently it can dry out their skin and hair coat and may cause problems as the natural oils on the skin and coat are stripped away.

  • Cats and dogs have sensitive skin. Human skin is more acidic than the skin of our pets, so using human shampoo products may have some unbalancing effect on their skin pH. The pH of dog and cat skin ranges from 6.2 to 7.2.
  • Choose a mild pet shampoo. You can also try applying a gentle rinse-out conditioner to help prevent dryness after shampooing or a Gloss Coat Spray for lightly conditioning the coat, making it shiny, soft, smooth and manageable.
  • Human type baby shampoos can be useful, in that they are non-irritant, but they don’t lather up and clean as well as others.

Care for Equines

  • A healthy, shiny coat is a sign of good equine health in the largest, most visible organ – the skin.
  • Many horses have sensitive skin. Horses need a mild shampoo or body wash, that is powerful enough to remove dirt and sweat without stripping away the skins own natural oils, which could support a skin condition. Bumps, irritation, swelling, rashes and infections are all signs of compromised equine skin health.
  • It is not always ideal to clean a horse with a regular shampoo, as this will dry out the skin. An equine shampoo is formulated with a pH balanced for equine skin and is therefore less likely to cause irritation.
  • The skin acidity is different from yours or from your dog, cat, etc. – the horse’s skin has a pH between 7.0 to 8.0.
  • Sweat and dirt raises the pH to the alkaline, so a neutral-to-slightly acidic pH is ideal to help restore your horses skin to it’s normal pH. This is important because it creates conditions less favorable for bacteria to thrive.
