Catherine tells me one of the things that turn her on about me is that I am I doing housework. A war that I am always fighting at home and in the shop is the war on dust. I have an arsenal of feather dusters but it’s always a challenge to get the dust off the feathers. Much like my feather duster your bird’s 10,000 or so feathers are picking up everything from lipstick (from kisses), newsprint ink, and oils and God knows what else?
Mango offers two solutions to the problem, a low sudsing not very thick shampoo in three varieties. Its easy rinse shampoo is a pH-balanced blend of mild natural soaps and vitamin conditioners. Easy flip-top for grooming convenience. Great for shower lovers.
Sometimes immersing your bird is impractical especially in the winter when you’re concerned about drafts. Mangoes spray bath in three varieties has no additional skin-clogging oil derivatives like other sprays they call preening oils. Birds have enough preening oils of their own. Our formulas are a light blend of the naturally occurring essential fatty acids of Vitamin A, D & E then blended with aloe vera, sweet natural anise, and naturals. All meant to compliment your bird’s bathing needs. The final product is a soothing moisturizing conditioner that soothes skin, washes away dead skin cells, and reduces the itches. This formula adds vitamins to your pet well being while encouraging your bird’s natural preening without clogging skin cells.

If there’s one message would like to get across to you is that Mango Pet Focus is Effective against over 50 pathogens including viruses, fungi, and bacteria. One quart of concentrate formula makes 32 gallons of the solution – it’s Cheaper and safer than bleach!
