OUR DOGS SKINCARE FEATURE
Founded by herbalist, Gemma Stocks, The Herbal Dog Co provides an entirely animal-centric range of lotions and potions for any size or breed of dog. Each product has been lovingly created in the UK using natural ingredients and contains no harsh chemicals. The range is designed to cater for a variety of skin conditions and provides grooming solutions for different types of coat. All the packaging is sustainable, compostable, reusable and recyclable.
Gemma grew up making perfume at the kitchen table from flowers she collected, and that’s where the Herbal Dog Co’s passion for sourcing extraordinary ingredients is rooted. It was from her Nanna that she inherited an early fascination with both flowers and dogs, and since then she has spent her life perfecting what she does. Her aims are to make pet care products affordable and the best that they can be using natural and healthy ingredients.
One of the most popular ranges at the moment is the Herbal Dog Co’s range of dry shampoos. These shampoos are perfect for giving your dog a clean after a long walk or a trip to the beach, all without the hassle of a full on bath time. Ideal to wipe down dogs that might be allergic to certain pollens, got themselves in a muddy mess, or rolled in something smelly. They come in a range of 14 natural and fabulous fragrances to make your pooch smell delicious. Prices start from £12.95 for a 250 ml bottle.
The summer months are also the time of the year when dogs can become infected with fleas and ticks. Herbal Dog Co’s Natural Spot On is a safe & natural spot on product that is applied weekly to the back of the dog’s neck for best results. It is made from ingredients which are natural such as quassia bark, neem leaf & lemongrass essential oil. It is available in 100 ml bottles priced at £12.95. The Flea shampoo contains neem oil, a cold pressed oil from the fruits & seeds of the evergreen neem tree. Even better than that this natural shampoo also contains soothing chamomile & lavender extracts to soothe sore, itchy skin. Available in a 250 ml bottle for £12.95.
If you’re looking to ease your dog’s sensitivities to things like pollen, dust, grass & food then have a look at the Environmental Soothers herbal range, providing an all natural & effective support. This range includes an Itchy Ear Tonic, a Seasonal Soother Tonic, an Immune System Powder Blend and a Seasonal Soother Support.
