Why Aloe?

The Aloe Vera plant is incredibly versatile and most effective on a variety of skin issues. It is not only rich in vitamins A, E, and C but it also has antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties. Furthermore, Aloe Vera can permeate the skin more effectively than other remedies including water. It is absorbed into the skin four times faster than water thus making it a powerful skin hydrator.

Aloe Vera provides a wholesome solution to meet the needs of so many pets. It has an abundance of healing properties as well. It exfoliates the skin helping to remove dead and damaged skin cells. It also helps decrease itching through its antipruritic properties. It also has anti-microbial properties with its ability to kill certain bacteria, yeast, and fungus. It promotes healing so wounds and skin irritations heal approximately 1.3 faster than normal. The healing power of Aloe Vera is like magic. It brings immediate relief to allergic rashes, sunburn, insect bites, and minor abrasions while simultaneously alleviating swelling and boosting immune response.

The inner filet of the aloe plant can provide a healthy, healing solution for a wide variety of skin issues including:

  1. Dandruff. Aloe will soothe, moisturize, and nourish the dry skin. The anti-fungal properties of Aloe will also help solve the problem as well.
  2. Dry, cracked noses and paws. Aloe is an excellent hydrator providing immediate relief.
  3. Hot Spots. Aloe provides instant relief and will accelerate the healing process if used several times each day.
  4. Cleaning facial folds. Aloe based products are great to use to inhibit the growth of bacteria and yeast in facial folds.

The healing power of Aloe Vera is like magic. It brings immediate relief to allergic rashes, sunburn, insect bites, and minor abrasions while simultaneously alleviating swelling and boosting immune response.

Stinky Dogs: How Can You Get Rid of the Smell?

The best way to get rid of the odor from a stinky dog is a good old-fashioned bath! However, if you are like most people, you may find that more than just a few days go by before you can actually give your dog a bath.  Here are some ways to keep your dog smelling fresh and looking their best in between bath days:

1. Try using Espree Wipes as a way to freshen up the coat, remove dirt, food stains, and odor from your pet in between baths.

2. A great interim is the waterless bath.  When there is no time for a full bath, waterless baths are quick and easy.  Use between baths to clean bathroom mishaps and accidents, remove excess oil, dirt, odor, and stains.  Lightly mist over the coat and towel dry.  It’s that easy to keep your pet looking fresh and odor free.

3. Espree  Oatmeal Baking Soda Spray can help manage the odor between baths as well.  The spray is infused with baking soda and oatmeal to help provide relief to itchy skin while eliminating odor molecules.  This spray can be used before or after a good old-fashioned bath to help eliminate that “doggy smell” in addition, to freshening up your pet in between baths.

4. We have the perfect solution for those tough odors that seem to be impossible to conquer.  Espree Extreme Odor Eliminating Spray will naturally neutralize the odor removing the smell, even from skunks.  The proprietary blend contains Aloe Vera, Alum, and our Secret Agent 20 has the capability of eliminating the odor like the smell was never there.
