How is the Great Barrier Reef the earth's largest living structure similar to the skin barrier of your pet?
The great barrier reef is a fragile ecosystem which is easily disturbed by small changes in the environment such as increases in temperature and pH levels. Your pet's skin is also a fragile ecosystem with a delicate balance between the skin microflora, immune system and mechanical skin barrier that can be easily disrupted leading to skin problems for your pet.
Not all skin care products are created equal
It is important to use a good quality product that is formulated specifically for pets. Pets’ skin is sensitive, thinner and has a different pH than human skin. Do not use a human shampoo it is too harsh for a dog or cat’s skin and may dry it out and damage the skin barrier.
