Shea butter for your cat
If one of your family members is a little four-legged man who says “meow,” you may have noticed that his skin may appear irritated from time to time. If your cat has itchy problems, or if you notice that her skin is flaky and dry, she may have sensitive skin. Cats can have sensitive skin just like people, although we don’t think about this all the time, because all we see in our cats is hair. However, there are many things that can cause your cat to have dry and irritated skin. Before you head to the vet for an expensive visit, you should know that there are a few things you can do to help your cat feel more comfortable and have healthier skin.
If you give your cat regular baths, be sure not to bathe him with a strong shampoo. Some pet owners use flea shampoo every time they bathe their cats because they want to keep fleas away. However, there are some pretty harsh ingredients in these types of shampoos. Instead of bathing your cat with a flea shampoo, try some type of flea collar or repellent. Swap out the flea shampoo for a baby shampoo or a cat shampoo designed for sensitive skin. Kitten shampoo is usually gentler and calmer than other types.
Another thing you can do is change the foods and see if there is a difference. There is always the possibility that your cat will experience a food allergy that could dry out the skin, irritate it, or make your cat itch. If you try a different food for a week and notice that your cat seems fine when it comes to her fur, you may want to make a permanent change. Sometimes this is all it takes to get your cat back to normal and to alleviate skin problems that make your cat itchy and irritated. However, sometimes it has nothing to do with food and your cat simply has sensitive skin. In this case, you want to find something that helps heal the skin and makes your cat more comfortable.
Shea butter is great for cats with itchy and dry skin. It’s packed with healthy vitamins and minerals that protect and heal a cat’s skin. Keeps your cat’s skin hydrated and relieves itching and irritation. It is very easy to use shea butter for your cat. Just rub it between your hands to warm it up and melt it a bit, and rub it into your cat’s fur and down to their fur. Be sure to apply a generous amount to your skin, so the shea butter works to combat skin irritants. It will help eliminate the reason why your cat has itchy skin and make your cat feel more comfortable while the skin is healing.
We love our cats and we hate seeing them miserable. Using the tips and ideas above will really help your cat get back to normal soon. This makes for a happy cat. When the cat is happy and satisfied, so is its owner!
