Use prescribed shampoos


When bathing or washing dogs and cats, please only use the shampoos prescribed to them by vets or other animal specific products. Also, do not bath more than once a week. Regular grooming is also an essential part of good animal care and not only prevents knotting of fur, is also a form of enrichment for your pet and helps them with a daily task they do as part of keeping themselves clean. For more information and or advice on animal care, washing and grooming please do not hesitate to contact the Grahamstown SPCA or one of the friendly vets in town.
