While we love our pets, we don’t always love the way they smell. And despite our best efforts to make bath time fun, our pets don’t always love to hop in the tub. Luckily, The Spruce’s Waterless Pet Wash makes cleaning your pet hassle-free.

What Is Waterless Pet Wash?

Waterless Pet Wash is a pet care product designed for use between grooming appointments or your pet’s regular baths. Our product is specially formulated to be no-rinse, so it’s perfect for dogs or other pets that aren’t enthusiastic about time in the tub. Waterless Pet Wash keeps your pet smelling fresh and clean without the hassle of a full bath.
