Dogs with skin sensitivities and allergies would benefit from avoiding all detergents and perfumes and the trauma associated with conventional shampooing. Any of these animals are groomed using ONLY microbubble cleansing in Japan. For those with oily or flakey skin, the amount of enzyme added is adjusted accordingly.
Dogs with no such issues may benefit from an initial medicated or routine shampoo especially if the skin is VERY oily. This will help the microbubbles perform their unique ability to deep clean pores and hair follicles. Very often, if owners allow routine microbubble cleansing, pre-shampooing becomes unnecessary and even unwarranted as detergents will potentially negatively affect the skin.
Animals (cats, ferrets, etc. as well) that require specific topical therapies such as antifungal or antibacterial shampoos will actually benefit from a pre-microbubble cleansing as the active ingredients will now be able to work more effectively “in” the skin rather than just “on” the skin.
It should be noted that shampoo should not be used in conjunction with micro-bubbles as the surfactant will affect microbubble function. Consequently, shampooed animals should be rinsed thoroughly and fresh water should be used for the microbubble treatment.
