The Frequently Asked Question
Why do you dilute the shampoo? Is it necessary? Is diluted shampoo easy to use compared to concentrated ones?
We have been diluting shampoo since our groomer starts attending grooming lessons. And owners have been asking about diluting the shampoo and what’s the ratio. And we decided to write this entry to share our own experience about diluting your fur baby’s shampoo.
When we mentioned concentrated shampoo, we meant using the shampoo out from the bottle directly onto your pet. This has always been the way most pet owners shower their fur babies. However, not many know that concentrated shampoo may be harsh on their pet’s delicate skin.
By diluting your pet’s shampoo, it is mild enough to come in contact with your pet’s skin. Cats and dogs have a thinner skin compared to us humans. Thus, the sensitivity of the skin is much higher. With harsh chemicals or ingredients, it may trigger rashes or allergy reaction. Diluting shampoo reduces all of these risks.
If your pet is on medicated shampoo, we advise you to dilute the shampoo as the ingredient used can be a little harsh on their skin. Which may cause your pet’s skin to dry out instead of moisturizing. P.S. It all depends on the individual, not all pet reacts the same way.
Diluted shampoo also helps you use less yet able to give your pet a nice lather which cleans the skin thoroughly. In a way, you save your shampoo by a lot.
How To Dilute Your Pet’s Shampoo
Things to prepare:
- mixing bottle or a pail (depending on which you prefer)
- your pet’s shampoo
- marbles (if you’re using mixing bottle. 2 pieces will be enough.)
Step 1: Place the marbles in the mixing bottle, add water and shampoo. Roughly around 1:10 ratio. If you’re using a pail, add the shampoo in it then water. Usually, the gushing of the water helps to mix and dilute the shampoo.
Step 2: If you’re using mixing bottle, shake well. The marbles will help with the mixing.
Step 3: After you’ve soaked your pet’s coat, use the diluted shampoo to lather its coat. Rinse well after lather and dry your pet.

Lately, our Shih Tzu is having skin issues. We have tried head and shoulders but that didn’t work. We decided to try VetaHex and we are happy with the results.
He gets itchy easily and often scratches himself. Occasionally there would be a patch where the skin looked raw due to obsessive scratching. We heard about how good VetaHex is and we decided to give it a try. VetaHex is considered a medicated shampoo with antiseptic properties. It doesn’t strip off the natural oil on your pet’s coat but to moisturize it as well. Most medicated shampoo that I came across isn’t nice smelling. But VetaHex smells nice and gives your pet a refreshing feel after a shower.
Our Shih Tzu was diagnosed with yeast infection during his first visit to the vet in August 2016. That was when we noticed he had an ear infection and his skin seem to be getting pretty bad. We were recommended to change his diet to help with the infection which probably caused by an allergy. However, we decided to go a step further to help ease our boy’s itchiness. That’s when we stumble upon VetaHex and that’s when we started using. We diligently showered him every 3 to 4 days, about twice a week.
We noticed our Shih Tzu’s skin got better. His yeast infection is under control and still is now. Occasionally his skin will flare up where he will scratch his skin raw and red. After using the shampoo, the redness lessens and within hours it’s gone. He scratched lesser now which is a good thing. At least we know he is much more comfortable and less itchy after using VetaHex.
