The Importance of Selecting the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about the fact your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are developed to address these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pets Etc. stock a full range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
