Default Cat wipes.

Ok so I have been using just a warm damp soft cotton pad to clean my cats "parts". She is a bit overweight (working on a diet now, needs to lose 2lbs) and I need to keep her clean down there. She has had two episodes of her anal glands becoming impacted, so the vet said to, well, keep her clean. So far its been good, but she has been getting a bit of a waxy type build up on her folds. Damp cloth is not cutting it! It may even be some of the gland stuff? So can anyone recommend a pet wipe. Or is baby wipes ok? I dont want to use anything that could irritate her. BTW she doesnt mind getting cleaned thank goodness!

Since she can't reach her bottom to clean it, I would get some personal hygiene wipes or baby wipes marked "sensitive". Some baby wipes can be irritating---hard to believe that manufacturers would make such a thing!

Be sure there is no alcohol in anything you decide to try. Read the labels carefully, alcohol can show up in many different terms.

Really I would keep on with the damp cloth or bounty paper towel rather than risk using anything that will cause irritation to her skin.

Use unscented baby wipes. Don't waste your money on wipes for pets.

Baby wipes work good. Use the unscented ones for sensitive skin. Just like when using anything for the skin watch for any irritation or allergies. Hopefully the wipes will work well for you.

My advice exactly.

Huggie's Natural Care Fragrance-Free are nice. I buy them for the animal shelter and they're so handy.
