What do breakfast and dog shampoo have in common?

Oatmeal is a great choice for both!

Did you know that colloidal oatmeal is extremely beneficial for your dog’s skin? Colloidal oatmeal is oat bran that is finely ground and added to water to make a paste-like substance. It is a safe ingredient and regulated by the Food and Drug Administration. Because it contains whole oats, it has many more benefits than the oatmeal one would find in the breakfast aisle.

Colloidal oatmeal contains key components such as lipids, saponins, which act as a natural cleanser, and several avenanthramides, which contain antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.  This colloidal oatmeal acts as a protectant and barrier for skin. It also helps moisturize the skin, soothing cracked and irritated skin.

Benefits of washing your dog with colloidal oatmeal include:
  • Itchy skin relief
  • Flea and tick side effect relief
  • Reduction of redness
  • Skin allergy relief
  • Skin hydration
  • Hot spot relief
  • Reduced irritation
  • Natural cleansing and anti-infective
