The original coconut and neem oil dog shampoo bar from CocoMutts has proved extremely popular with trade buyers, consumers and professionals. That’s why it has now released two additions to the range – a coconut & moringa shampoo bar and an argan & oatmilk shampoo bar. All three are hand made in the UK using only natural ingredients. The argan and oatmilk shampoo is also 100% fragrance free, ‘perfect for particularly roublesome or sensitive skin’. CocoMutts dog shampoo bars generally last longer than an equivalent liquid shampoo and don’t need the squeezy plastic bottle, great for the environmentally conscious consumer.

With ticks becoming an increasing problem for pets, Johnson’s is introducing a Tick and Flea Collar for Dogs. Ticks are external parasites which vary in size from a pin head to a fingernail, depending on how engorged they are. It is not possible to prevent ticks attaching themselves to pets, but wearing a Johnson’s water-resistant Tick Collar will kill ticks and fleas, and help prevent further infestation for up to four months. It may take several days to be fully effective while the active ingredient spreads throughout the coat. RRP  £4.49 inc. VAT.
