I’ve been wondering how to keep Simba’s hair beautiful and white. I especially don’t want him to have those awful tear stains! So I’ve been asking around and doing some research on how to maintain his beautiful white coat. I bought some whitening dog shampoo a couple of weeks ago, but it just doesn’t seem to be getting the job done. I decided to ask my followers on Instagram and I received a couple of responses.
These are the responses I received:
emjscottt Apparently Oatmeal based are the best, espec for light colours
itsazoo2012 If you buy purple shampoo for blonde hair and mix it half and half with your puppy shampoo that will work perfectly. Just keep it out of his eyes.
bellathedogg I use baby shampoo as well . Its softer on the fur and skin
travis_otto We use oatmeal based shampoo for my white one, works like a charm and he’s still as white as when we first got him.
I also did some research on my own and it seems like most people that own white dogs use oatmeal based shampoo. So I looked up oatmeal shampoo on Petco.com and the brand “Perfect Coat” seems to have a lot of good reviews. I think I will try this shampoo out this weekend and post before and after pictures of Simba on the blog.
