    What a wonderful product - and i love the video. The dogs look so cute. I live in a small apartment and my special friend is my taby, Mr Kibbles. Mr Kibbles actually loves his bath - he has never acquired that self bathing cat habit (which i appreciate).

    Have you had other cat owners try this product with success?

    Susan

    Also I realize Denise considers a lot of these gifts over-indulgent. I hope with this product, she understands we are just trying to express our love and appreciation for other living things (without a potty mouth :-).

    @Susan, thank you for sharing your love for Mr Kibbles! Your dog will love his new wash sponge. Please note that essential oils are not always safe for cats. These sponges should only be used on dogs, not on cats, to be safe.

    @Elena thank you so much for looking out for Mr Kibbles. I tried essential oils on him before - they were really massage oils my neighbor sold and then lead to a terrible rash and actually some hair loss! such a sad little kitty. Let me say, i have given up on massage oils but certainly not the massage (he really likes being rubbed with a tennis ball - who knew, right?). Well thank you - and if you ever decide to serve the other four legged friends, i will be waiting! Susan

    @caroline, Great question! Depending on a size of a dog you should be able to get at least 15-25 washes. Many dog parents also use the sponges to wash just dog's paws after walks daily which can change the numbers. We would love to hear your feedback about how many washes both dogs will get out of it!

    Does the soap bother the dog's eyes?

  • Elena

    4/9/2015 12:32 PM

    @Sandra, it is the best practice to always keep products away from dog's eyes when washing a dog. We suggest using pure water and washcloth to clean the dog's face close to the eye area. With that said, we did not see any indication that the scent or the sponge bothers dog's eyes. All there scents are very relaxing.

    4/9/2015 12:35 PM

    @Georgene, great question! Yes, your lawn is safe with Dog Fashion Spa wash sponges. Many dog parents who have large dogs prefer washing them outside, especially in summer. This sponge was originally designed for large dogs but has been adopted and loved by all dog parents! I use it daily to wash my dog's paws and she is only 11 pounds.

    Hello! I have been giving a lot of puppy baths and am interested in this product. Typically I use baby shampoo so I don't have to worry about getting it in their eyes. Is this product safe if it gets in the eye?

  • Elena
    Elena – Special Guest
    4/9/2015 12:49 PM

    @Amy, thank you for sharing your puppy wash routine! There are two questions here: using a baby shampoo on your puppy and is this product safe if it gets in the eyes.

    Please note that dogs need products with a different PH balance than the one in human products, even for babies. Human shampoos may also include ingredients that are safe for babies but are not safe for dogs. The first thing is the puppy really needs a product that was designed for and tested on dogs.

    To answer your question about the sponge getting in the eyes, please try to stay away from dog's eyes with any product. If the leather/product gets inside the dog's eyes just quickly rinse it with cold to warm running water. As long as the product does not sit inside the dog's eyes for hours it will not cause damage or irritation. Just wash it off with water if it happens (it happened to me multiple times, my dog showed no reaction and I just washed it off).

    My dog is allergic to every shampoo we've ever tried, even ones from the Vets office. After grooming, he chews and rips our hair in the chewing and scratching process. Our Vet is puzzled that we can't find a shampoo that his tender skin can handle......so I'm wondering about yours as an option? any thoughts? Thanks. Jo

    @jo, thank you for sharing your experience. Your veterinarian would be the right person to partner on solving the issue. We found that most of dog allergies are actually caused by diet and not topical products. With that said, using a dog lotion and a conditioner after bath is one way to add moisture to your dog's skin which reduces scratching. Adding fish oil to dog's daily diet is known to help with scratching as well. If you are choosing a sponge I would recommend one with lavender essential oil which is known for its calming and healing qualities. I hope this helps. Sending healing love to your dog.

    @Elena - This product sounds great. After using it, can I assume you simply rinse with water? And do you need a second application or will one do?

    Also is this an organic or organic-type product?

  • Elena
    Elena – Special Guest
    4/9/2015 1:51 PM

    @Debra, thank you for your questions! The product is really easy to use. Simply rinse it off, just like you rinse off dog shampoo. Usually one application is enough. Just remember to first lather the sponge in your hands and then rub it onto your dog's wet coat.

    This product is not certified organic although it is vegan. It is made in the U.K. and adheres to very strict European guidelines and laws when it comes to ingredients (European product ingredient laws are stricter than the laws in the U.S.)

    I noticed you said that this isn't necessarily safe for cats, do you have A) a list of ones currently available that are safe for cats or B) a cat friendly version in production? My family has five cats, none of which like baths, in fact for one, she's so aggressive in the tub we have to wear Kevlar gloves. A product like this would definitely be a great help at bath-time.

    @Lisabel, thank you for your questions and love for cats! The use of essential oils on cats is a controversial subject. Cats can be very sensitive to certain essential oils that may be toxic to their liver. With that said, there is no approved list of essential oils safe for cats. I would recommend staying away from using them on your kitties.

    We cannot disclose if there is a cat-friendly version in production yet :) but we promise to suggest another cat-friendly product to The Grommet that you and your cat will love! Stay tuned!

    @Elena Lisabel. I found this that might help - five cats, Oh Joy!

    Pet your cat with Valor essential oil several times from shoulder to base of tail to balance the energies of the physical and emotional body. You may balance the energies as in human raindrop or allow the oil to do this for you.

    Take four drops of oregano, thyme, basil, wintergreen, marjoram, cypress and peppermint and place in a 30 ml or one ounce bottle. Fill the rest of the bottle with V-6 vegetable oil blend or base oil and gently mix by rocking the bottle back and forth. Apply six drops to the spine from the base of the sacrum to the shoulders and feather stroke the oil into the back three times. Do this one to three times during this session.

    I like to gently do the Vita Flex thumb technique up the spine several times to stimulate the electrical frequency of the spine and promote penetration of the oils into the tissue.

    In most RDTs, a hot towel is applied to the spine for about three to five minutes but most cats just won’t stay still long enough for this to be done! So don’t worry about it. You could wrap your feline friend in a warm blanket if they would allow that!

    Other oils such as Aroma Siez, Copaiba, and Frankincense can be added to the solution depending on what you are trying to achieve. I wouldn’t add more than two or three additional oils to the solution.

    @Susan, thank you for sharing this! I would also suggest working with a veterinarian who is certified a herbalist to make sure the cat is safe. Let's hope there will be more research on using essential oils on cats coming up soon. At the end of the day, essential oils are wonderful, we just need to learn and have scientific evidence about which ones are safe for cats and in what dosage.
