  • Waterless Shampoo

    I have many samples of the stuff and have never even tried it...Do any of you use it, like it, hate it, or what....

    waterless shampoo

    love it. Its great for touch ups...accidents and lil things..some people use it on cats instead of giving them bathes. I personally like the Miracle Coat best. It smells wonderful and does a great job..

        I also use and recommend Miracle Coat's Waterless Shampoo. They have a foaming formula now, but I haven't tried it (yet). Like hairdevil, I've found it great for the occassional "oopses."

          The groomers at my shops love it, they use it if the pet tinkles, they use it if it is raining outside and they took the dog for a walk, etc.

            how did it work on the cats? do you let the owner know that it's a waterless shampoo or do we just do it? not sure...what do you guys think? If it works on a cat, do you still charge what you would for a bath?

              The waterless shampoo should not replace a good ole bath. I use it on the cats that just get a brush-out.

                I agree with Gracy. No waterless shampoo should replace a bath if a bath is what the client is paying for.

                  We have some that we use if there's just a small area that needs a touch up. I forget what brand we have but it's useful to have on hand. Some of the other staffers borrow it sometimes.

                    I also keep the mericle coat on hand I groom alot of sr cats which most do not get full baths but their poor lil hineys are just dirty works .i think this product work wonders aslo used for those lil accidents that are not requiring a complete rebath.such as piddle paws ect.

                      I use Best Shot's waterless shampoo called ONE SHOT. It's great for touch ups. Also, there ae some kittys for whatever reason that just can't tolerate a wet bath and this product doesn't make the hair sticky or heavy like some others that I've tried. I really love it

                        cool ...thanks for the info...i'm going to pick up a little bottle first to see if i like it. If the animal has an accident and it just gets on the paws, I figured that if you didn't re-wash the paws (or whatever area) and used a waterless shampoo instead - that it would just smear everything into the coat. I use the hydrosurge on the kitties and it works well for me because of it being so quick...but i want to try it on some of the kitties that can't stand the water and want to claw you to death!

                          QuikClean Waterless Shampoo by Fort Dodge (found in veterinary supplier's catalogs) is the best I've used. No, it's not for bath replacement, but it can be used to fix an accident or after anal glands, things we use it for here at the veterinanry hospital. It neutralizes odors and leaves the coat "clean, but we only use it for spot treatments.

                            I really like the

                            Bio-groom waterless shampoo. Smells fresh and the gallon is really reasonably priced. Also, another thing for cat baths, Espree makes a foaming cat bath. You apply it to the cat dry and work it in, then you do have to rinse it off but, it skips the step of rinsing first, you only have to apply and rinse. Just a thought for those cats that somewhat tolerate a bath.
