Can I give my cat a bath?

Should cats be given baths? If so, how often? And are there special shampoos?

Cats are generally pretty clean and do not need regular bathing unless they become dirty or have a skin condition. General bathing can be as needed. For a basic cleaning we recommend Hylyt shampoo and creme rinse since it does not strip the essential oils from the pet’s fur. Avoid using human shampoos and other human products as they are much too harsh. If your pet has a skin condition, talk to your veterinarian since a special shampoo may be needed for treatment.
