Review: Opie & Dixie Holistic Line

Product: Opie & Dixie Holistic Products

What It Is: all-natural pet care products

Manufacturer: Opie & Dixie; manufactured in USA

DogTipper Review: We love natural, eco-friendly pet products so e jumped at the chance to review the new holistic line from Opie & Dixie, a company that’s already well-known for their wholesome products, all launched by a true dog lover and advocate, Debbie Guardian.

The new line of holistic products includes:

  • Organic Ear Wash made with spring water, peppermint, and eucalyptus.
  • Oatmeal Almond Shampoo for silky coats and skin health.
  • Unscented Kitty Shampoo with gentle rosemary, lavender, and rosehip extracts.
  • Rosehips Dry Shampoo and Conditioning Mist for waterless washing.
  • Gentle Puppy Shampoo: Soothing and mild for a puppy’s delicate coat.
  • Botanical Créme Rinse and Conditioner for hydrating skin and coat.
  • Healing Paw Balm for restoring, healing and hydrating paw pads.

We received a selection of products from Opie & Dixie and planned to try the Organic Almond Shampoo first on the dogs…but suddenly there was an urgent need for a cat bath here. (Our cat Coco has medium-long hair and is somewhat overweight, a combination that sometimes requires a quick post-litter box bath.) We used the Unscented Kitty Shampoo on Coco and couldn’t have been more pleased; the shampoo suds up very quickly (really important when bathing a cat!) and rinsed off completely, both a real plus in our hard water!

Next, we tried the Organic Ear Wash on Irie’s ears. Her long, floppy ears are perfect for trapping dirt and moisture so we clean them often using a cotton pad. The Organic Ear Wash did a great job and smelled wonderful; it contains spring water, organic peppermint organic spearmint, organic lemon eucalyptus, organic tea tree, and organic rosemary.

Finally, we gave the Rosehips Dry Shampoo & Conditioning Mist a try on Tiki (who, just days after her bath, decided she needed to smell like eau du dead frog). A few quick pumps and Tiki had a light mist on her hair and smelled heavenly. The mist, which is 100 percent vegan, is made from purified rain water, organic rosehips, organic chamomile, organic calendula flowers, organic safflower oil, and more.

A big paws (canine and feline) for the new Opie & Dixie holistic line!

Paris and John, thank you for this wonderful review of Opie & Dixie's holistic grooming line! Opal (Opie) and Dixie have been trying to write you their own personal thank you's since you posted your wonderful review, but those klutzy girls just can't seem to hold onto their pens. Rather than wait one minute longer, I decided I'd better step in and write on their behalf. From Opal, Dixie, and Yours Truly, THANK YOU!
