Brush the pet before you bath the pet to remove any debris.
Use warm water and not cold. Don't let the water get into the pet's ears.
Apply the shampoo onto the dry fur. The shampoo will bond with the dirt on contact then wet the pet's coat down and repeat it again. Only use pet shampoo or tearless shampoo. Use conditioner after shampooing even if the coat is very oily it will return moisture to the skin and coat. Rinse with cool water not cold be sure you rinse thoroughly. For cats use waterless shampoo. Pat dry with a towel until the coat is damp, brush after it is dry.
