Special products for feline metabolic specificity
At DogMä, the products dedicated to cats are specifically adapted because we have favoured the use of hydrolats and ingredients with edible plant active ingredients.
DID YOU KNOW THAT...
The cat licks himself to wash himself, so any product left on his hair and skin (shampoo, perfume, detangling lotion, etc.) will be partially ingested. This can have negative consequences for your cat's health! It is therefore necessary to ensure that the composition of the grooming products used is specifically adapted to its metabolism.
Artificial perfumes and essential oils are therefore to be avoided under your personal initiative without the advice of a competent professional authority such as a veterinarian with a holistic practice.
The cat has no less than 70 million receptor cells and 20 cm2 of olfactory mucosa compared to 5 million and 4 cm2 in humans!
That's how developed his sense of smell is!
In addition, it has a unique organ, located between the palate and the nose, called Jacobson's organ, with which it draws air into this passage to detect pheromones. Overloading this organ with perfume and essential oils can change your cat's behaviour and jeopardize its health.
Since it does not secrete a liver enzyme that promotes the elimination of the active ingredients of essential oils (among others: phenol, ketone, alpha-pinene, D-Limonene), your cat will struggle and tire for nearly three days to eliminate the essential oils containing these components while your dog, who secretes these liver elimination enzymes, will take 6 hours.
If the dose is high or the contact is continuous and prolonged, there is a risk of overloading and toxic hepatitis and endangering his health.
