Can I use any shampoo on my cat


Hey to the team, my name is Steve Williams from Canada living at Ottawa, I just adopted a 1 year old cat and I don’t know anything regarding taking care of a cat, my question is can I use any shampoo on my cat?

Me and my wife just had a baby, so I was wondering if it was also okay to use our baby shampoo on my cat, We also have a dog, so I was also wondering if it was safe to use our dog shampoo on our new adopted cats..

Can I use any shampoo on my cat

Well you can’t just use any shampoo on your cat, whether it a baby’s shampoodish soap or any human shampoo, you need to buy a shampoo that was made and dedicated for cats.

Some people do use dog shampoo on their cats but that is never recommended since most dog shampoos can be harmful to cats.

The only shampoo I would recommend you to use on your cat would be Adams flea and tick cleansing shampoo, just because I’ve been using it on my cat since 2015 as well.

Using a baby’s shampoo won’t protect your cat from bacteria’s and germs, plus shampoos that were made for humans will dry out your cat’s skin.

Using human shampoo probably won’t kill your cats or what so ever, but according to the FDA, human products and pet products are too different things.

Human shampoo is for killing minor human germs and body odour, I would advise you to never use human shampoo on a cat.

Dog shampoos are very cheap, amazon have a lot of cat shampoo’s. I would advise you to go to a nearest shop and go to a pet section am sure you’ll find a shampoo dedicated to cats.

You can also go to amazon and look for shampoos there, amazon has at least 20 different shampoos for pets, but you need to only buy a shampoo strictly for cats not for dogs.

Check out my top 3 shampoos you can use on your cats


Adams flea and tick cleansing shampoo can be used on dogs, cats, puppies and kittens, we also use this shampoo at home, this can kill fleas 99.9% percent of the time, but it is very hard to get this shampoo offline.

You can get this from amazon, but if you order this from amazon you will get it after 3 days, but you will also get free shipping. You won’t to pay for any delivery cost if you buy this from amazon online store.

This is the best shampoo when it comes to killing dog and cat fleas, if your cat or god have a flea problem then I would advise you to buy this shampoo, it is much cheaper to order it online since it can be very expensive offline.


Natural care flea and tick shampoo  can be used on any pets, it not only dedicated to cats, it can be also used on dogs as well, this is one of the most trusted pet shampoo in United State, this kills ticks, fleas, lice and mites.

When buying a shampoo to use on your cats, you need to always make sure you buy something that will also provide protection against germs and bacteria’s. The last time I check Natural care flea and tick shampoo had 78 reviews on amazon with 52 “5” stars and 10 “4” stars, which means it does exactly what people are looking for on a pets shampoo.


Natural chemistry de flea concentrate flea and tick shampoo Well this shampoo is my wife’s favorites since it can be used on dogs and cats, we used this once and it was lovely, it will leave your cats with a fresh natural scent. It doesn’t have any chemicals on it and also alcohol free, it can be used on cats starting from 12 weeks or older.

But when bathing your cats with this shampoo you need to make sure you avoid contact with eyes and mouth. It will kill harmful fleas, bacteria’s and germs. I don’t know any store that has this shampoo, the only place I know that has this is amazon online store.
