    Another Smile Cat Vinegar Rinse for Cats -- why not done anymore?

    Seems like vinegar rinses have gone out of style?
    A new client with a pretty Maine Coon uses Earthbath Hypo-allergenic, followed by a vinegar rinse to "cut the suds".
    I this this is something that used to be popular? Using vinegar rinses on pets? She said it does cut the suds and makes bathing quicker, which is good since the kitty gets restless.
    Anyone still do the vinegar rinse?
    Do you suggest I try it?
    Benefits?
    Draw-backs?
    The owner bathes the cat herself -- and does a really great job. The coat looks perfect.
    Thanks!

    I still use it on some dogs but far less once we got water treatment to reduce minerals and with a softener.

    I know a lot of show Siberian owners are still using that method. And they are winning lol. But they are beautiful cats. I'll give it a try and see if I like it. My old girl Kisa, is just not self cleaning like she used to and looks really bad after about 3 weeks. If it gave me some more time between baths that would be nice.

    I'd say go for it lol.

    It's great for yeast, and makes black coats really shine.
    Old groomers never die, they just go at a slower clip.

    Groom on!!!

    Oops. Meant to say Siberian, not Maine Coon. So it's a Siberian show cat type of grooming? Makes sense. The cat is from a Siberian breeder in Albany. Her cats are beautiful.
