How often should I wash my pet?
You can wash your pet as frequently or as infrequently as you would like! We recommend bathing your pet every 2 weeks to keep your pet clean. If your pet is a little smelly between baths, Divine Pets Waterless Shampoo is a convenient way to freshen up your pet without a full wash.
Why can’t I use my own shampoo on my dog?
Human skin and dog skin have different PH levels and using human shampoo on your dog will irritate your pet’s skin. All Divine Pet products are pH balanced for your dog’s skin.

No, if your pet licks some of the product, it will not harm him because all of our products are free of harmful ingredients.
